Yesterday afternoon I travelled across Italy, from Dont in the Dolomites to Lucca in Tuscany (a bus and five trains). Despite including a high speed train, the journey was reasonably cheap (19 eurocents/km). I was interested in this example of price discrimination at Florence’s main station:
(1) Long queues at the “standard” ticket counters;
(2) A couple of “alternative” counters allowing you to “skip the line” for €2 or €3 more.
