Train travel in Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

I'm planning an 18 day trip at the end of November and the beginning of December to Europe that starts in Rome and ends in Zurich. It's been 11 years since I was last in Europe and I'm totally confused with the train travel options.

Hopefully you guys can help because I'm completely baffled.

Rough Itinerary:

Rome
Val d'Orcia region (likely renting car)
Florence
Bologna
Venice
Verona (maybe)
Piedmont Region (Maybe)
Zermatt
Zurich

Should I be purchasing directly from trenitalia? Is it recommended to buy on a leg by leg basis or some sort of bulk purchase. Or do I go with buy a euroail or raileurope pass.

This is going to be a long trip so I am trying to be budget conscious in regards to travel. Any advice or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
