I found two web sites that described the nuts and bolts of train tickets in Italy. Ron in Rome is especially detailed complete with pics. He has other topics in his transportation section. Great resource.

My question, as we prepare for our trip, is the very short times between trains. I've gone on the Trenitalia site to check schedules for all of our planned trail trips (all of which are on the local regional trains) and some have 7 or 11 minutes of time between trains. I'm already having anxiety attacks thinking about rushing between tracks and missing connections. I also wonder about missed trains. If we buy a complete ticket, Pisa Airport to Pisa Centrale to Empoli to Siena (for example) and we miss one of the connections - can our tickets still be used for the next train? There are a fair number of trains in the schedule, so it won't be the end of the world if we miss one of the connections, because we can just get the next train. However, do we have to purchase new tickets? Any advice/comments from vetrans on this question would be appreciated.

(Hope I haven't hijacked this thread)

Regionale tickets are valid on any Regionale train. Take the next one.
