I have just made reservations online to take the Frecciarossa from Rome to Salerno! This high-speed train will get me there in just two hours as it travels at speeds up to 350 km an hour! The Trenitalia web site is not that hard to maneuver, especially since there is an English version now. Once you register, you can make reservations and then purchase the tickets either online or in Italy. Up until the last year and a half, you could not book seats more than 60 days in advance. In 2009 Trenitalia changed the time frame to 90 days. This definitely saves time waiting in lines and worrying about whether there will be any seats left. Less than four weeks to go!
