EURAIL, INTERRAIL ITALY, OR INDIVIDUAL TRAIN PASSES

The type of pass you should buy for your trip mainly depends on where you are going and how long you plan to stay. While it can be more convenient to buy one pass that will last a certain amount time, it might end up being cheaper to buy individual tickets. It’s just a matter of doing your research and understanding what your options are.

Here is an article about the difference between Eurail and InterRail. Also read below for more information:

EURAIL

You have many different options with this pass. While you can purchase a Eurail Italy pass, you can also purchase passes that include Italy and 2 or 3 other countries. These passes offer discounts for groups of 2–5 people or people under the age of 26. Essentially, this is one pass for all your travels. With a Eurail pass, children between the ages of 4 and 11 travel free, so long as you buy an adult pass for each kids’ pass. However, this pass limits you to the public rail companies. Private companies, such as Italo, are not covered by your Eurail pass.

INTERRAIL ITALY

This pass has some similarities to the Eurail. This allows you 3, 4, 6, or 8 days of travel in one month; you can take all the trains you want in those 24 hour periods. This also offers discounts for young adults and seniors with children under 12 traveling for free. This pass can get you to the major cities and even to the islands of Sicily or Sardinia.

INDIVIDUAL TRAIN PASSES

When traveling in Italy, trains are fairly inexpensive. If you do your research and especially if you book ahead of time, you can find cheap tickets for all the major destinations. Although this allows you the least flexibility, as you will need to book dates and times in advance, it’s likely the most cost effective way if you are only traveling through Italy. It’s usually fairly easy to buy tickets at the train stations so if you really don’t want to plan ahead, you can always purchase them along the way!
