Sorry for opening a new thread for this guys. I couldn't find the other thread, where we used to discuss about these topics. I am going to Milan for Inter-Cagliari game (my dream trip). I will be flying from Berlin to Rome and planning to take an overnight train from Rome to Milan (arrive in Milan on 19th November - morning).
I will be travelling with my friends (5 of us) and we thought that we would be utilizing our time, as well as save on hostel-hotel fee, if we take a night train (couldn't find night buses). After some searching, I was able to find this:

Cheaper is obviously better (as long as it is good). I was wondering if anyone of you guys had an idea about the differences between BASE and MINI fares (can't change tickets, bla bla aside). What I wanted to know was if we would get a proper seat or not. It is my first trip to Italy, so just wanted to confirm before purchasing the tickets. Mini fare would cost me €37 and BASE fare €54. Both are ok, even though I will go for €37 one, if there are not much differences. I will definitely not be changing my tickets or train time or anything.
Please reply me ASAP guys (if you have any idea).
I will buy the tickets after reaching Milan (as suggested by some of the guys here). I am planning to buy the orange tier (€37). Any suggestions are welcome.
