In going into Rome, validation was easy and gates ensured that you don't forget. On the return, there are no signs indicating that validation is necessary, the ticket machine lets you pick a time for travel (which doesn't show up on the ticket, by the way), with no indication that validation is needed. We didn't see a validation machine anywhere, there was no indication in getting the ticket that it needed to be validated (see small print on the back of the ticket), and no lenience on the part of train ticket collectors. My wife and I, as well as two other pairs of people, were all caught at the end with no validated tickets and extorted for 50 eu. and threats of higher fines if not paid immediately. If you use the Leonardo Express, be sure to validate the ticket or face cold hearted ticket people who face karma soon. Bad taste ending to an overall good trip.
