It's been a couple of years since I made this trip but I don't remember it being quite as hectic as Mike described in the next message. I was travelling in early October when the crowds might not have been as large. The train at the Rome airport only goes into Rome. You will change to another train there for the trip to Florence. Since you can only make reservations on the train at least 24 hours in advance, I purchased each ticket from a machine in the train stations. There are no reservations on the airport train but you simply look for an empty seat. On the train to Florence, it's a little different. Unlike in years past, the trains no longer mark reserved seats. The train cars are designated either reserved seats or unreserved seats. If the trains are crowded, you can go into the cars with reserved seats and look for an empty one. If someone boards the train later and you're in their seat, you must relinquish it. This is the way it worked last May when I travelled between Milan and Florence. You could get a reservation in Florence for your return trip.Enjoy your trip. Florence is a wonderful city.
