Discovering all of Italy, by train

A journey to Italy can be a dream come true, and traveling by train provides an amazing opportunity to see it all!

Italy’s national rail company, Trenitalia, operates daily connections between almost all of the country’s most popular destinations like Rome, Florence, Milan, Naples, and more. In addition, trains in Italy make it possible for travelers to experience smaller, off-the-beaten path locations that are not so easily reached by other modes of transportation.

Whether a high-speed trek on a Le Frecce train between Rome and Venice, or a ride on a local commuter or Inter City train, the connections you will make on board, are almost as exciting as the connections the trains make from city to city. Journeying by train gives you a unique opportunity to see and experience a more intimate side of Italy.
