Train Travel

The ultimate in stress-free Italian travel is to journey by train. Enjoy the ride, look out at the lovely countryside and even take a nap while you're whisked from one city to another.

If you're traveling between Italian cities, the train is definitely the way to go. All the train stations are centrally located so getting to your hotel is much easier than from an airport. For major city routes, hop on one of LeFrecce high-speed trains, which will get you where you're going quickly and in comfort. You might want to pay a little more for a first-class ticket for a roomier seat and complimentary drink and snack.

Be sure to book your train tickets with your Italy Vacations package!
