I'm planning a trip for four people in Italy this upcoming June 2016. I'm trying to book tickets on a sleeper train from Florence to Tropea and then Tropea to Rome. Going through ACPRail.com and www.lefrecce.it (Trenialia) when I try to search/purchase tickets, I get stuff like "Could not request product"
I was under the impression that bookings would be available three months before the travel date - are sleepers something different?
Alternatively, is there something like a train travel agent that I could correspond with in English that would provide guaranteed tickets - as opposed to a purchasing agent who would be free to take my money and then go "oops, sorry, tickets are not available, best of luck!"
I tried the apps.italiarail.com site as recommended in one of the comments. I got a "607: not all trains have a specified service" message. Going to the site's help section seems to suggest that means that the schedule has not been released yet.
Does this seem reasonable? Does appear to be reasonable after following Relaxed's link in the comments - though a firmer date of when I can buy tickets would be welcome.
I was finally able to make the reservation on May 20, 2016. No explanations or comments, so it does in fact appear to be related to the summer schedule change.
