Subject: Re: Eurorail pass vs Italian rail
We just used the Italian rail service last March. We traveled from Rome to Florence, stayed a few days, then traveled from Florence to Venice and returned to Rome. The accommodations were fine. One leg of the journey we sat 4 to a small cabin but the rest of the trip was spent in reclining seats and it was not first class. I believe the small cabin was between Florence and Venice and only for a brief ride but the rest was quite comfortable and enjoyable with even a small snack served and a beverage. We did not spend much on the ticket and purchased them in advance in the States as was recommended. We were told the tickets are often sold out so we booked in advance. Carrol Fiorino
