Traveling in Train in Italy

I'm trying to take a train from Rome Termini to Venise S. Lucia fro a trip which I plan in September (from the 7 to 22).
I was not able to get train ticket for that day since it always show oversold. Do I miss anything. I thought making a reservation over a month ahead will be great but the train must be very buzy in Italy!

Do you want to buy a ticket or only a seat reservation? What train site are you looking at? It's hard to believe that every train is sold out for an entire day.

For trains in Italy use this site to purchase tickets and seat reservations.

I just checked for September 7 and there are lots of tickets available. The only ticket that I see sold out is the super economy fare.

The fast trains can't be oversold as they are reserved seating only. Are you trying to book a certain train at a certain time of day and it's sold out? Is it just the discount fare sold out? We need more details (day/time).

I don't see any trains from Rome to Venice sold out on Sept. 7. Most have the super discounts gone, but the economy discounts and regular fares are still available.
