Buying Train Tickets

by bfigs

I guess this could be in the General Travel Forum but does anyone know how to buy Amica train tickets and is it adviseable to buy train tickets on line before you travel to Italy? Thanks~

Re: Buying Train Tickets

by leics

You do not need to buy train tickets online before you go to Italy unless a) you are travelling overnight and need a sleeper/couchette or b) you are travelling immediatly you arrive on a reservation-only tran (and there are very, very few of those....tickets can be purchased up to a few minutes before departure if there is availability) or c) you want to travel on a holiday date when trains may be very crowded and yo want to be cerain of a seat (you can stand on any non-reservation rtrain).

If you really, really want to buy a ticket online then look at www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html rather than Raileurope, which will charge you commission (and not list all possible journeys). An alternative site is www.italiarail.com which I belive is the Trenitalia 'abroad' website.

You can, of course, easily buy tickets in advance from stations.

For details on Amica fares in English, go to

http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html

and click on the 'Promotions' tab.

Re: Buying Train Tickets

by monorailgold

Hello,

The "amica" fare is a 20% discount on the regular fare. You must purchase it at least 24 hours before travel to qualify for it. It is limited and can sell out. I would advise against buying tickets before you get to Italy. There really is no reason to purchase ahead of time as the trains rarely sell out. Just buy your tickets as soon as you can after you get to Italy. You can stop by the train station and get all of your tickets at the same time. Also, the trenitalia website is not set up to take credit cards that are not Italian issued. You can check out the trenitalia site for schedules and fares and then print out the ones you want and take it with you to the station so you get the trains you want. You can use the self serve kiosks or the counter. If you go to the counter make sure you ask for the discount as they will not offer it even if it is available.

Travel Tips for Rome

Cafes and Coffee Shops

by Jmill42

Upon your arrival at a cafe, you are expected to pay at the cashier's desk (cassa) before consuming. Check out what you want, then pay. After that take your reciept and head to the bar, placing a small denomination coin on your receipt (scontrino) will get the bartender’s attention.

If you would prefer to sit down and take your coffe, it will cost you at least double, in my experience. Doing this, you do not need to pay first. Just sit down and the waiter will eventually come over to take your order.

Monte Argentario coast.

by breughel

About 160 Km north of Rome on the Tyrrhenian coast is a mountainous promontory, the peninsula of the Monte Argentario.
Monte Argentario was probably an island which became linked to the main land by strips of sand forming a laguna. The town of Orbetello is located on the middle strip.
There are two nice ports Porto Santo Stefano of the north side and Porto Ercole on the south side. The Mediterranean vegetation (dwarf palm, maritime pine, olive trees, vineyards, orchards) of the Monte Argentario is very nice so that there are similarities with the well known Portofino in Liguria.
Furthermore there are also extended sand beaches bordered by pine trees all along the coast from Ansedonia to Talamone.
Nowadays Monte Argentario is a place of tourism, essentially Italian tourism. Many Romans have here vacation residences going from luxury villas, apartments to small bungalows. There are many camping's and well developed marinas.
Actually there are not many hotels; international tourism is less developed here than on the Ligurian or Adriatic coasts.
That’s probably why Romans like this place: no invasion of international tourists!
The area is very crowded in summer and on week-ends (by Romans), I would advise to visit in low season.

For more info ref. my pages on Orbetello, Porto Santo Stefano, Porto Ercole & Talamone in Tuscany.

Being Alternative

by OttoMarzo about The Qube

One of the most alternative clubs in Rome, it provides many different events every week. Usually famous concerts on Wednesdays, live music and rock disco FOR FREE on Thursdays, gay and lesbian disco on Fridays and live music and rock disco on Saturdays. Special events on other days of the weeks. Three huge floors with different moods, atmospheres and people. Very alternative. Dress codes and entrance selection for "Mucca Assassina" events, gay and lesbian, on Fridays.

Excelent place for lunch or dinner

by adema29 about L'Antica Birreria Peroni

Very good food, tasty and well cooked dishes and, of course, excelent Italian beer! And, not the last, very good ...price !
The only negative comment: crowded and could be difficult to find a free table.

General Audience - Pope

by moscoba

Thank you very much! I am in a war zone and they cannot fax back to me since my friend in Rome faxed it for me.

I will use this email address and hopefully get an answer, if not, I will just copy what you did to pick up the tickets.

Have a great day!
