Subject: Re: Italian Train Reservations
Hi Fernando,

In your mail about train service in Italy you said:

avoid Regionals, at least our experience with the regional train was that they sell all the tickets they can no matter how many people can fit in the actual train car... it was filled with people...

I would just clarify that regional service is the local service for short jorney, mostly for students and worker that get to the office/schools every day and it is a not reservable train.

I use regionals every day to get to my office and almost all the passenger don't use a tiket (like for intercities or Eurostars) but a monthly pass and seats are not numbered. This is the reason because this kind of trains appears over selled tikets.

Ciao, Marco in Milan (after 40 min of regional journey this morning) - Italy
