Make sure you use the Europass App it is very helpful for planning your trip each day you are using the trains. It will advise you regarding reserving your seat, which is an additional cost but compulsory on some trains and it's better to know in advance than to find out just before you expect to board! All in all we found it worthwhile to have a prepaid Europass for our time in Italy.

Having purchased the pass it didn't seem right to have to pay a further 10 euros for seat reservations.

"Italian train experience "

Value for money: 2/5
Ease of use: 3/5
Suitability: 3/5

Unfortunately my sister and I had a bad experience and 50 Euro fine on one of our trips. We bought a 5 trip ticket with additional trip included free. Unfortunately on our 5th trip I completed the Journey details including Day, Month, Time, From, To and Type of transport but forgot to enter the date on the Pass. We are two 60ish women and had completed all the previous details. The conductor was very rude and made me pay a 50 Euro Fine. I know that the rules say it has to be filled in before the trip but really the date was entered in the Diary. Very embarrassing for us too.

"Easy to use and convenient once we had booked but I found the website difficult"

Eurail pass is handy but I am not sure if it's good value or not for off peak times - we travelled in October and all the trains were 1/2 full. It was good to know we had tickets all the same. I found the rail plus website quite cumbersome to navigate and. I would advise anyone to make more detailed enquiries and comparisons before purchasing.

Was not aware you had to pay for reserved seats even in second class on their fast trains. so had to pay 36 euro to the conductor on the train, it would have only been 20 euros if I had paid at the station.
