Note: France and Italy have adopted a system that is basically a legal way to extort money from foreigners. Buying a ticket at the station is not enough: you also have to "validate" it in a small red machine. If you forget to validate it, you may get fined, and the fine can be as much as the price of the ticket. Italy and France have a reputation for inventing the silliest bureaucratic rules and this one is also very smart, as almost no foreign tourist will think of sticking a perfectly valid ticket into a small red machine. All instructions, needless to say, are written only in Italian or French. Please help boycott the national railways of France and Italy: travel by bus.
