Train ticket questions....

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Italy in early July and I'm trying to purchase mini fares through the tranitalia website. I am having some issues trying to find times that work with my itinerary. For instance, I would like a very early train from Florence to Salenero (would like to leave around 7am), so that I could be in Positano by early afternoon, but the only option that is available is a 10:30am ticket getting me to Salerno at 1pm. This will get me to Positano after 2pm...if we get on the Sita without any issues!

So, my questions are:
1) on the trenitalia website, when it shows "segment not purchasable" does that mean they aren't for sale yet, or does that mean they are not pre-purchasable?
2) if it only shows one option, does that mean they are sold out of all the morning time slots?
3) should I be booking my train tickets in advance? or will I have more options at the train kiosk and just get them when I arrive at the station?
4) do they offer mini fares at the station?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! This will be my first time in Europe, so as you can see I have no idea what I am doing!!!

Thanks!
