Italia Rail Guide

Italiarail lives up to its name by selling tickets for rail journeys within Italy and the core feature of its service is that it is primarily designed to be used by international visitors to Italy.
So the English translations of place names are used when looking up journeys and the terms and conditions for using each type of ticket are clearly explained.
It also clearly points out the additional costs of upgrading to other classes and types of tickets while spelling out the additional benefits of doing so.
Though Italiarail will charge a booking fee, typically of around €3.

The Early Bird service

Italiarail has launched an 'early bird' pre-booking service for journeys by Frecce trains.
Tickets can be booked up to a year ahead of travel at a flat-rate price per route, before the tickets have been released for sale by Trenitalia.
If when they are placed on sale, the price is cheaper than what you have already paid to Italiarail, it will automatically refund the price difference.
Conversely, if the price is more expensive, you won't be charged the price difference.
You can also have the peace of mind of securing your seat(s) on the Frecce train(s) when you are first planning a trip.
If before the tickets are placed on sale, you decide to change your plans, you can request a refund; but once the tickets are released for sale, you will then be bound by the terms and conditions of the ticket(s) you have booked.

Good to Know

The train which departs at 17:20 is the fastest as it travels via Milano Centrale, where it reverses direction.
The other trains travel via Verona and reverse direction in Porta Nuova station, they also both call at Peschiera Del Garda and Brescia.

The first train of the day is a Frecciargento service.

All of the these direct trains travel along the high speed route between Roma and Bologna, but after Bologna, they take two different routes, but of these have similar journey times and one route isn't more scenic than the other either.
The departures at 09:50 and 18:50 travel via Verona and they reverse direction on departure from Verona Porta Nuova station.
The departure at 17:20 continues along the high speed to Milano Centrale station, where it reverses direction.
