Question: how can I buy my train tickets from Venice to Rome?
You’ll be fine buying tickets on the spot at the departure station, from TICKET OFFICE DESKS or from an automatic machine, which also has an English language option and accepts cash/debit/credit card.
(Sometimes the credit card option of the machine could not work..check before you start).
Always check the time schedules online (visit the website: http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/ ), so you can arrive to the station enough in advance so to have time to buy the ticket either way (you may find queues).
If you want to buy the ticket online, just go to www.trenitalia.com or www.ferroviedellostato.it
There’s also a useful english version of the website, that is http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html
There’s a way to board the train without having to pick up a printed train ticket. You may buy your “TICKETLESS” ticket online,or over the phone, up tp 10 mins before train departure, calling call center: +39 06 68475475
