AT THE STATION
In addition to the customer service desk in the normal ticketing area of the station, there are also Mobile Service desks situated near the platforms of stations served by Frecciarossa and other AV (high-speed) Trenitalia trains. These clerks at the desk can answer questions and help with booking changes. There are also often officials on hand near automated ticket machines to offer assistance.
Many platforms have overhead displays that indicate where each Frecciarossa car will stop and when a train arrives at the station, so you can wait at the appropriate part of the platform for your assigned car.
Don’t forget to validate your ticket before boarding the train. Failure to do so can result in a fine of up to €200. Note that while not all Frecciarossa or other AV train tickets require validation, it doesn’t do any harm to validate your ticket if you’re not sure.
First class on Frecciarossa trains is broken down into three categories: Executive, Business, and Premium. Second class is known as Standard. First class passengers receive a free “welcome drink” which can be a soft drink or coffee, a snack, and a newspaper upon boarding.
