Italian Train and Rail Distances

The following is an excerpt from a press release issued by Rail Europe.

Italy’s railway network is as attractive as the country itself, offering an impressive high-speed system connecting Italy from North to South. As a result, rail travel has become increasingly popular within the country. The fleet of Frecciarossa trains makes the non-stop connection between Rome and Milan possible in just 2h 59m (this is 1h 27m faster than before the high-speed line was available).frecciargento train florence venice
