Train sleeper type - double seat compartment (Posto doppio)

by Sambawalk

I do not understand the difference of various types of sleeper in Italian train.
I know Cuccette C4 or 3 bed compartment. But what about double seat compartment (Posto doppio), does it have a bed or just seat?

What I am looking for is a bed to sleep overnight. But fare for cuccette and 2 or 3 bed compartment are sold out, my next choose is double set compartment which in fact costs more than the former. Thanks.

Re: Train sleeper type - double seat compartment (Posto doppio)

by K_V_B

As always "the man in seat61" has the answer.

"Sleepers within Italy...

There are two types of sleeper on most overnight trains in Italy. The first is the traditional sort, (...) with 12 largish compartments each of which can be used as 1, 2 or 3 bed (one bed above the other). The second is the 'T2S' design with 17 much narrower compartments, each with an upper and lower berth for 1 or 2 bed occupancy. On the Trenitalia website, berths in the former type are referred to confusingly as 'Single seat compartment', 'double seat compartment' and '3 bed cabin' depending on the occupancy you want. The much smaller T2S compartments are described as 'Special seat compartment' (if used as single-berth) and '2 bed cabin'. I recommend the larger traditional type if price isn't critical, as they have much more space than the T2S type.

A handful of sleeper trains in Italy (for example, Milan-Naples & Rome-Palermo overnight trains) have a third type of sleeper called 'Excelsior' as well as normal sleeping-cars. Excelsior deluxe sleepers have 1- and 2-berth rooms with private toilet and shower. One room in these cars (the 'matrimonial suite') even has a double bed. They used to run in the Paris-Italy overnight trains, but no longer do so."

Travel Tips for Rome

Walk inside and around the...

by mark02377

Walk inside and around the Colosseum, get your picture taken with the Gladiators if thats your thing, but it will set you back about 5-10 dollars.
Walk through the Palazzo Senatorio(Amazing White building as seen in photo). The Vatican is really impressive as well,

What to Wear in the Fall in Italy

by forest2go

This was my greatest dilemma, partly because the weather in Italy prior to my departure was very hot, but my trip covered 3 weeks in late Sept/early Oct. I also didn't want to look like the "ugly tourist" but I wanted to be comfortable. Here's my verdict: In Rome and Florence, if you plan on doing much walking, bring the most comfortable shoes you can afford, whatever the color. At the end of the day, your feet will thank you. We clocked several miles a day. Very few Europeans of any age were wearing black shoes! And many more were wearing various styles of sports shoes in a range of colors. For clothes, I took layers, including sleeveless and light long-sleeved shirts, a sweater, a polar-fleece vest, and a light-weight jacket. For trousers, I took jeans, black slacks, and a pair of cargo pants. Days in the fall can be toasty and nights chilly; I used everything! BTW buy a scarf (or two) while you're there and learn how to wear it -- you'll look more like the locals than if you try to wear all black.

Amazing Selection of Leather Gloves

by TRimer about Sermoneta

Need a pair of gloves to match every coat and/or outfit? Then this is the place to go. Here you will find every color, style and texture imaginable. Sermoneta has stunning and dramatic gloves. I have been to both their stores in Roma and Milano. They range from between $40 and $120 US per pair.

Buses and Trams

by sandysmith

The metro tends to bypass most of historic old Rome - thats because there is still so much of ancient Rome beneath the modern city that they can't dig a tunnel for the trains without running into 2,000 year-old brick walls, mosaic pavements, and marble columns! The ATAC buses and trams do go into the centre though and can be really handy.

We found the H BUs route: Termini (Viale Einaudi) - Via Nazionale - Piazza Venezia - Largo Argentina - Ponte Garibaldi - Viale Trastevere (for evening meals outs) to be the most useful.

Not a bad little restaurant

by uglyscot about IL CANTINONE di Lorenzo Pieretti

The restaurant is quite a busy one which is usually a good indication.
The food was good, though the service could have been quicker. Maybe they were understaffed and the place was full No complaints about anything we ate, as can be expected in Rome.
For 1 bottle of water 2.00 Euro
2 helpings of bread 3.00
First course 7.00
second course 15.00
Meat course 11.00
1 dessert 3.00
1 soft drink 2.00
total 43.00 Euros
