Please help me with train information.
We have to travel from Padua to Rome on Sunday Sept. 19, and we prefer direct train without connection. I checked two web sites. Raileurope.com sent me schedule of only trains with connection in Bologna, allowing only 11-19 minutes for transfer. It does not show choice of direct train.
The other web site, www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html, which was in this Forum in 8/2009 (and thanks to Perilizia), shows departure and arrival time, but it does not indicate if it is a direct train or needs connection.
Questions: Is there direct train service from Pauda to Rome on Sundays in September? Is it better to buy the ticket with seat reservation while in US? If we wait to buy train ticket in Padua, will there be risk of no seat in second class train?
Thanks in advance for any help
