OK - Just wondering if there is anyone out there with an Aussie credit card (or, at least, a non-Italian or European issued credit card) that has successfully purchased a train ticket on the Trenitalia website?
I'm getting through to the purchase part, but it comes back "payment denied"
In any case...how easy are the self-service ticket booths? How early before a train should I book/ ie. do I need to purchase tickets the day or two days before, or can I do it half an hour before the train departure?
I'm travelling to Italy early December....
