    Hi Connie,

    In Italy, reservations are required on the high-speed trains and the IC (InterCity) trains. The high-speed trains in Italy are Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, Frecciabianca, and Italo. However, Italo trains are privately owned and do not accept rail passes. Therefore, when traveling with a rail pass, you would want to be sure to choose one of the other train types when you go to purchase your reservations.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by searching a route on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Italy Pass’). Generally, trains in Italy can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date.
