    Hi Ressie,

    Yes, the Eurail Italy Pass does cover regional trains trains in Italy. The Eurail Italy Pass covers the ticket costs for trains operated by Trenitalia, the national rail network of Italy. This includes 'Le Frecce' trains (Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, and Frecciabianca), InterCity (IC) trains, and regional trains (Regionale and Regionale Veloce).

    From Montecatini, you would take a direct regional train to get to Florence. The trains from Montecatini to Florence take about 1 hour in duration. Regional trains don't accept reservations, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.

    From Florence to Venice, you would take a high-speed Frecciarossa or Frecciargento train. These trains do require reservations in addition to the rail pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations for a train from Florence to Venice by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), inputting the route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail Italy Pass').

    On the route from Florence to Venice, there are also trains called 'Italo' trains. These trains are privately owned and would not be covered by any rail pass. Therefore, you would want to be sure to book your reservations for one of the Frecciarossa or Frecciargento trains.

    For planning purposes, you can still view schedules for the non-reservable trains from Montecatini to Florence by doing a search under 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage. Generally, when just searching for schedules for non-reservable trains, you would have to be sure the 'No' option is checked where it asks you 'Are you traveling with a rail pass?'.
