"First time train travelers"Curtis c. 02/06/2015
We purchased our Frecciarossa tickets online before trip started to get a good deal, printed them out and hopped on the train in Florence with ease. Just to make sure we knew what we were doing, we went to the station the day before and spoke to a very helpful person in a kiosk, making sure that my print-out was going to work as a ticket. It did. We had a great experience all around. Value for money Convenience
