How do I buy train tickets in Italy?

You can buy train tickets online or at train stations or small travel agencies.  At the Florence train station you can buy your tickets directly from a teller or at an automated computer.  The computers all have English options.  Remember that one city may have several different train stations. To review train times and prices visit the national train website, www.trenitalia.com. High speed trains are “Freccia” or “Italo”.
