We think the trains are the best way to get around Italy, especially between the cities.
Fast, inexpensive, comfortable, and reserved seats (we usually take the Eurostars).
We only drive in Tuscany and Umbria because we like to visit the hill towns.
Many of the hill towns do not have good train access.
What is the most efficient way to get around in Italy?
Italy’s excellent national train system is the most popular way for tourists to get around the country. The national train company is online at Trenitalia.com, where you can look up schedules and purchase tickets.
How do you travel between cities in Italy?
Taking the train is the easiest way to explore Italy. All of Italy’s major cities are connected via high-speed rail, and booking a ticket to the Italian countryside is simple. Choosing express trains provides a fast way to travel between Italian cities, carrying you from Rome to Naples in under two hours.
What is the cheapest way to travel in Italy?
For cheaper options, Italy’s regional trains are a great alternative and get you where you need to go! Getting around larger cities like Rome can be done by Metro or bus, although the Metro only has 2 lines so it’s not my suggested mode of transportation if you’re trying to a fit a bunch of sightseeing in a day.
