Hello all. We're thrilled to be travelling to Livigno for the 1st time in mid Jan '14! Just trying to sort out a couple of little transfer details before we leave, namely... after our stay in Livigno, on 25 Jan we're going to Florence, and have found that the Italian trains run from Tirano to Florence via Milan. The Livigno tourism bureau has advised that they can book us on the bus from Livigno to Tirano, however not the train from Tirano to Florence.
Has anyone here travelled this route and if so is it really necessary to pre-book the train at this time of year? Is this a busy time for train travel in Italy, or can we just arrive at the Tirano train station and book on the spot? Any info/advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Sharon
