European Rail Travel - Trenitalia 9555 FRECCIAROSSA to Napoli question
May 31, 11, 9:33 pm
I was wondering if anyone knows if 9555 FRECCIAROSSA goes to Napoli.
On Trenitalia departs Firenze at 11:25 and arrives in Napoli at 14:20; however, when I Google the train orario it shows Roma Termini as end of the line. http://www.e656.net/orario/treno/9555.html
I am a little confused and hope that someone familiar with this train might help. Many thanks!

The Trenitalia site *does not* show 9555 as going through. It requires one change of train to get the times you show, in Roma I expect.

From what I am seeing on the Trenitalia website it appears that 9555 goes all the way to Napoli without any train changes. I am asking about 9555 in particular, because is less (36 euros) expensive than 9509 or 9511 which are 58 euros. However, if I have to change trains in Roma Termini, is 15 min is enough and what if my train is late arriving in Termini? Thanks again for taking the time to replay.

I'm confused - I couldn't make it do that. Perhaps it runs through on certain dates only.
If you do have to change, 15 minutes should be enough, I'd think, though I've never been to Roma Termini to know if it has any special features that might make that impossible. If you book a through ticket and miss a connection you will be reaccommodated on the next available train, AIUI.

Further to that, I checked the date you specified and DB HAFAS shows it as a through train as well. So I guess this is perhaps extended for higher demand in the height of the summer. So indeed no need to change.
