Train from Triesteto Venice

We will be taking the train from Trieste to Venice on September 30th. Since this is not a reserved seat train and I'm not sure of the specific time that we wish to depart, is it necessary to get tickets now through Rail Europe or can we safely buy them at the station at the time of departure?

It is pointless to buy these tickets in advance, as they cannot sell out. Buy in Trieste for €10.90. I wonder how much Rail Europe charges?

If there are other tickets you are thinking of buying in advance, buy from trenitalia on http://www.fsitaliane.it/homepage_en.html not from Rail Europe which is a third party agency.

Rail Europe charges $15 for second class and $24 for first class. If the euro price that you quoted is for second class, it's pretty close. If for first class, it's obviously much more expensive. Trenitalia does not sell this trip in advance according to it's Web site.

The important thing is that purchasing tickets at the station gives me flexibility relative to time; so Grazie Mille for the advice.

Yes, that was second class. First is €16.35 in Trieste.

Trenitalia does sell these tickets in advance, but only within seven days of travel. And the online tickets are for a particular time. The tickets you buy in the station are better as they are for any day and any time, until you validate them (time and date-stamp) before boarding the train.

Sounds like a plan.

Once again, Grazie Mille!
