I tried to look for tickets on the Trenitalia web site and it wont allow me to search out times. I live in Canada and it (the site) informs me I have to book my tickets through Manditours in Toronto. They tell me it is a one time $25 fee. Is there any way around this? Should I buy my tickets ahead of time? I will be traveling with my adult son. I am wondering If I should just buy a Eurail Pass? We will start in Rome, then Venice, Levento, Naoles, Pompei then down to Sicily via ferry.
