Purchasing a Italy Flexipass in the US?

Has anyone purchased a Italian Flexipass
to use on the Italian National Railway in
the US? I thought this might be easier, than
trying to do it at the train station. My
husband and my daughter and I plan on taking
day trips and a few overnight trips, using the train? I would appreciate any suggestions you might have about this. The
price for 1st class is 196.00 and the price
for 2nd class is 157.00. I have only taken
the train in 2005 with my Italian cousin,
who purchased the tickets for us ahead of
time. This time, I will have to do it on
my own. Thanks in advance for your help.

How many trains are you taking? From where to where? Have you checked with Trenitalia to see whether point-to-point tickets might not be a lot cheaper?

Hello Alpicella, you will probably find that buying point to point tickets the least expensive. Go to: www.tenitalia.com to compare. As far as buying the tickets you can do so at the train stations or at various travel agencies.

Hi A,

You almost always have to buy the railpass in the US.

As LI suggests, check the prices at www.trenitalia.com.

You can purchase your tickets online.

You will get a confirmation number, which you show to the conductor.

You can also check by entering your proposed itinerary at www.railpass.com to see if a pass will really save any money.
