Frecciarossa 600 travel guide

These ETR 600 trains had been classified as Frecciargento services, but Trenitalia has evidently decided that the very different tilting ETR 485 trains will now be the only trains branded as Frecciargento services.
So they have joined the Frecciarossa family and as a result are being updated, the refurbished trains have a new livery, which differs from the image above, and new features including USB sockets and LED lighting.


These Frecciarossa 600 trains are currently seemingly only used on these two routes

1: Bolzano - Trento - Verona - Bologna - Firenze - Roma
A route shared with Frecciarossa 1000) trains.

2: The daily direct train on the Trieste - Venezia Mestre - Bologna - Firenze - Roma route

Reservations (& Using rail passes)

Seats will be assigned when booking tickets.

Rail pass users will need to reserve prior to boarding - reservations can be booked at ticket counters or by using Trenitalia branded ticket machines OR online on the ItaliaRail website.

Six things worth being aware of:

(1) Before boarding check the carrozza/coach number on your ticket, which will make getting on to the train less stressful.

(2) At some stations that Frecciargento trains call at, there will be information screens on the platform/binario - which will indicate where to wait for the doors to a specific coach.

Where there aren’t any such info screens, the best option can be wait in the middle of the binario and then locate your carrozza/coach when the train arrives.
If need be, board by the nearest door that you can get to before the train departs, and then walk through the train to find your seat.

(3) The carrozza/coach numbers (and the destination information) is shown on an electronic display, to the right of the door

(4) A number 2 on the side of the coach, which is some distance from the door, will indicate that the carrozza/coach is 2nd class, while a 1 indicates 1st class

(5) As all seats are reserved, there is no need to rush -particularly if you are waiting in the zone on the binari where your carrozza/coach will come to a halt.

(6) What you won’t see when entering the carrozza/coach is any indication of between which stations the seat is reserved for.
All you have to do is look for the seat numbers and match it to the seat number on your ticket.
Take your time as the seat numbers can lack logic - you will find them on the walls between the windows and the luggage racks.


Folding bikes can be taken on board as hand luggage.

NON-folding bikes must be disassembled and placed in travel cases, that need to be shown to the conductor, or platform staff prior to boarding.

They need to be stowed in a specific part of the train and the conductor/platform staff will show you where.
