Trenitalia – Travel Italy by Rail

The Frecce train network connects you to most major Italian cities by comfortable, convenient, high-speed trains. Most of my client destinations are best served by Frecciarossa trains.

The Frecciarossa trains connect Turin-Milan-Reggio Emilia AV՞Bologna-Florence-Rome-Naples-Salerno and Venice-Padua-Bologna-Florence-Rome-Naples-Salerno on the high-speed line. These trains can reach a speed of up to 300 km/h (386 mph). The Frecciarossa 1000 is the fastest one and can reach a maximum speed of 400 km/h or 248 mph!
