What happens in case of missed connection in Italy ?

I want to travel from Venice via Bologna to Milan. Both rides on Frecciarossa which requires seat reservation.


What happens if I miss the connecting train because of the first train being delayed ?


My best guess is that I should see station staff in Bologna, tell the the situation and will be given a new reservation for the next train, if seats are available.


Has someone any experience if this usually works smooth in Italy ?


Thx for help !

Your best guess is good. You should get a new reservation free of charge.

If you see in advance that you're going to miss your connection, then talk with the train staff and ask them what to do.

Why travel via Bologna? There are direct high speed and Eurocity trains Venice to Milan.

Except today due to works on tracks, but trains get a deviation, and you don't need to change in Bologna.
