(LAST EDITED/UPDATED: 1 February 2008)

Here are some links about on validating
tickets (biglietto) for bus, train, tram, street cars, funiculars, etc., in Italy:


Photograph #1: Instructions on use of the Yellow Machine and how to validate your train ticket

Photograph #2: Instructions are in Italian, English, French and German

Photograph #3: Yellow Machine AKA Yellow Box used to validate your ticket. Please note: While the color is usually yellow, some may be orange in color.

The above photographs were taken at the FS (Ferrovie dello Stato) – Italian state railroad – train station in Monte San Savino (AR) on 26 January 2008. This is just a regional train station with service from Arezzo to Singalunga and the towns in between Arezzo and Singalunga. There is connecting bus service to other nearby towns and villages.

The above links are current. If anyone has any suggestions for other sites, please feel free to post your comment and I'll update this blog entry. For your specific interest, please search the web for further information using Google .

You need to be very careful when travelling in Italy. I travelled into Naples on the Circum-Vesuviana train and was stopped and fined by a guard for having the wrong ticket, even though my Italian friend had brought it for me. When I threatened to involve the police I was told if I did the policeman was also fine me. It was a scam, the guard was looking out for tourists to take money from, he even posed when I took a picture as he was so sure that no action would ever be taken.
