Subject: Night Train from Rome to Venice
Hello Ziners

Has anyone taken the night train from Rome to Venice?

I'd be interested in recommendations on how to book it. Is the Trenitalia website reliable? Should I wait to consult an Italian travel agent at the risk of waiting until 2 days before we actually need the train?

We are looking to get a 2 bed compartment. Trenitalia says they have a 2 "seat" compartment, but the diagram actually shows beds, and the price is 155 Euros which I assume must be for beds. Anyone know if the Italian word "posto" can mean "bed" as well as "seat"?
