6 days of your choice during a month period (for example 11th January - 10th February).

Seat reservations are required on fast/high-speed trains in Italy (3€ IC, 13€ Frecciarossa). If you don’t need flexibility advance tickets might be cheaper (compare Trenitalia and .italo fares).

@thibcabe thank you for your reply esp your tip tip to compare the one country eurail pass with trenitalia and italo… these have been very helpful. i fly in Milan then go to BErgamo ( day trips to lecco ) then Verona ( day trips to venice, to florence ) Milan.. 

 

If that is the entirety of your travel then a pass would not pay for itself.

Most of that can only be done on regional trains which are cheap and cannot be reserved in advance.

Only Verona - Florence and return would benefit from booking in advance and taking fast Freccearossa trains.

Yes the border point is Chiasso so it's no problem.

I'd advise to take the RE from/to Milan so you don't have to pay 11€ for the seat reservation on EC trains. The hourly RE train doesn't take more time

Thank you for your advise

I will purchase the italy pass for 6days within 1 month. Is the use on successive days for a month or can the pass be used for 6 travel days within a month, not successively.
