Actually, those are not all regional trains. The faster option is the Eurostar train between Venice and Milan; it stops at Peschiera del Garda. On this type of train one can save a lot by booking in advance. It seems that Trenitalia has not yet loaded complete schedules for travel after June 8. They show a full panoply of trains that day, but only one option for June 9 and June 10. It is a Eurostar departing Venice at 16:20, arriving Peschiera del Garda 90 minutes later. Mthe 19 euro fare is available but not the 9 euro one. Base fare is only 23 euroso there is not a huge advantage in advance purchase, unless the 9 euro fare shows up when they offer the full schedule.

Without looking at the schedule I would assume it is a regional train which can only be booked seven days in advance. But no reason to do that since there are no discounts and no reservation. Of course, this assumes a train goes there. I will check the schedule later.
