|Subject: Re: Italian Train Reservations|
Hi Greg, and Robert and Sandy,
In Italy, the Italian ES(EuroStar) trains require compulsory reservation. That means you'll need to pay a few dollars to make seat reservation with your rail pass before you board the train.
For other types of trains (such as IC), you can just get on the train with a rail pass.
You may make reservations as soon as you arrive in Italy.
