Updated Version of Italian Trains Book Now on Amazon

Italy Explained: Italian Trains

I have two quick bits of news.

First, I have published an updated version of my book, ITALY EXPLAINED: ITALIAN TRAINS, to Amazon. Trenitalia has introduced some new ticket validation machines, and I’ve got new info about using them, plus a picture so you know what you’re looking for.

Yay for ebook publishing and easy updating!

Second, if you were one of the lovely people who bought the book before I sent Amazon the update, you aren’t stuck with the outdated information. I got a message from Amazon that they’ve notified customers who already own the book so that they’ll be able to download the updated version:

We have notified customers about a content update on their Kindle library and they will be able to download it through the “Manage Your Content and Devices” page (

So if you already own the book, check the “Manage Your Content and Devices” section of your Amazon account to get the latest version of it. And if you don’t already have it, well – you’ll get the latest and greatest version of the book by buying it right now.

Thank you all so much for your support!

PS: If you own but haven’t already left a review for the book, would you please? Indie authors like me can’t survive without reviews from readers like you, which help other people find our books without the assistance of big publishing companies or advertising campaigns. I thank you profusely in advance!

  1. Hi Jessica,

    I bought your Italian Trains e-book and it’s excellent! It’s going to make our upcoming visit to Italy much easier.

    I do have one question though: If I am approaching a train and all the cars have a number 2 on the side, how do I find the carriage number?

      Thanks so much for buying the book, Dennis, I’m glad it’s been helpful! The class numbers (1 and 2) are permanent, but car numbers can change, so those are often printed on a piece of paper and stuck in the window of the door through which you’d enter from the platform. If you have questions, you can always ask a uniformed attendant – they’re usually plentiful when a train has pulled in or is about to pull out. Have a great trip!
