I have read the recent online purchasing issues, but I have one further question. I am trying to purchase a ticket from Villach to Venice - coming into Villach from Salzburg with a 40-min. connection time, so I would rather purchase in advance. Under the "Ticket Delivery" section, I only have two options - "Self Service (Not present in the departure station) or Home Delivery".
So even if I COULD purchase the tickets online from TrenItalia, does that mean that I will not be able to pick them up, or does that just mean that I have to pick them up from the ticket window?
This segment of the trip is a "Subject to compulsory reservation" and the next train going to Venice is 4 1/2 hours later and gets into Venice at 21:00 - much later than I would like.
We are leaving for Europe June 11, with this particular trip on June 28.
