More Information

Train travel in Italy is a popular option given its convenience and affordability, especially when compared to the alternatives by car and plane. In particular, the highly traveled segments between the major cities – Rome, Florence, Venice, Bologna, Milan and Naples – have grown in demand with the introduction of the Eurostar Italia trains (including super-fast Alta Velocita', or AV trains, and Eurostar City trains). These "bullet" trains offer multiple departures and quick connections, taking passengers from city center to city center in comfortable carriages with high-style Italian design. Most Eurostar Italia trains have a snack bar and restaurant service, and in first class there is – on some segments – a complimentary newspaper and magazine service. In the latest-generation cars, outlets right at your seat are provided to plug in your laptop, even in second class.

Purchasing a ticket, however, has until now often been confusing: the Italian rail website systematically rejects credit cards not issued in Italy and the presentation of numerous train types can be confusing. As a result, pre-purchase can be a futile (or even impossible) exercise. By contrast, the train booking interface on SelectItaly.com is clear and simple. Upon entering the number of people traveling, date of travel, departure and arrival cities, and desired departure time, customers are given quotes for both first-class and second-class tickets, and booking can be rapidly completed online. No long lines or fuss – purchasing your Italian train tickets has never been such a snap.
