Puzzle with booking train on Trenitalia, please help. Thx.

I need to book one way from Firenze S.M.N to Varenna-Esino on Sept 20

Departing 08 am, arrival 11:23 am (one change)

( The link is not working after posted)

Here is the link https://www.lefrecce.it/B2CWeb/search.do…

I need to book 2 tickets ( one adult for myself and the other is senior for my mom)

I checked individual price, i.e. for senior one way “ Premium” 33.5 Euro,

For adult cheapest is Economy Standard $42.9 Euro.

I have difficulty to book 2 tickets together in one transaction.

The ticket price for 2 adults booking quoted as Senior 67 euro, and adult econey standand at 85.8 Euro.

Q 1) Normally, I should able to choose price for senior and my adult fare, then shows the total price, there is no option to do so, maybe I did not find the tab/feature to do so. Please help.

2) Note from Senior Da 60 anni states “Offer dedicated to CartaFreccia holders of 60 years or older (the traveller has to be the holder of the card). No changes and refunds.

What kind of holder it refers to? to show my mom's passport for senior fare at the check in counter?

3) Worth to upgrade to Business Area Silenzio or Business ? difference in leg room or space ?

Hope to book this train in 2 days before departing on Sept 5.

3) The one way tain from Varenna-Esino to Milano Centrale, no need to book online/ in advance because it’s the standard price, correct ?

Thanks.

Re the seniors' fare, things may have changed but I'm familiar only with a small discount for those 60+ who purchase a card at 30 Euro or so; free for those 75+. I don't recall discounts just for age so showing a passport might not help.

Does free for 75+ mentioned in your post mean you ride free on the train? Thank you.

No, it means that the discount seniors card is free.
