Using Rail Passes:
Rail pass users must reserve before boarding this train.
You can now book rail pass reservations without paying booking fees on the OBB website (OBB operates these trains).
Though the process for doing so isn't particularly obvious, hence the step-by-step guide.
Making the rail pass reservation in advance online is particularly recommended if you will be traveling between June and September.
If you wait until arriving in Firenze/Florence to reserve, your first choice of accommodation on the train may have sold out.
