EURail works for all trains of Trenitalia, but not for .italo Trains.
It depends if it pays off. You can check the prices for the trains on trenitalia . com if you know already your dates. Trenitalia uses dynamic pricing, so prices may vary a lot…
To your EURail pass you’d have to add the reservation fees - 10 euro per person for each high-speed train, 3 euro per person for each InterCity train.

But I don’t know how your trip may work out with a 3 day pass…. you are speaking of at least 5 traveldays… except if you have so short stays in some places that you arrrive in the morning and leave in the evening.

Hi, here you can find what railway carriers are covered by the Pass. For more information on train types and seat reservations in Italy, have a look here. I trust this helps! Cheers,
