• Italy – Transport.
Trains in Italy are generally a good value, frequent, and of uneven reliability. On some high-speed routes there is a choice between “Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori” (privately owned) and “Trenitalia” (state owned). On other routes, either Trenitalia or a regional operator provides the service.
Frecciarossa and Frecciabianca are the fastest and most expensive trains. On these, you’ll have the option to choose between first and second class and you’ll have access to top-quality facilities including free wi-fi, newspapers, a restaurant, etc. But if you want to save on the ticket fare, choose a slower Regionale, the no-fuss train that Italians take daily to go to work or school.

Getting the bus is a great option for short journeys around your city or region. Most cities have regular bus services, but no single bus company oversees the whole country.

You can plan your travels, for tourism or business, by choosing from among more than three hundred daily connections offered by the Italian railway companies Trenitalia and Italo Treno (NTV). You can purchase tickets online on the websites of these two companies, at travel agencies or at railway station ticket offices.
Travelling between big cities is even easier, thanks to high-speed trains in Italy: you can reach Rome from Milan in just over three hours.
