Travelling by rail is a comfortable and great-value way to explore Italy, enabling you to easily tick off more than one destination in the same trip. High-speed trains can whisk you between cities like Rome, Florence and Venice, while regional trains chug through countryside to smaller towns like Siena and Viareggio. You can travel to and from Italy by rail too – hop on board the Eurostar to Paris, then continue down through the French countryside on a daytime or sleeper service. For a real treat, you could travel on board the elegant Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. 


Italy Rail Itineraries

When it comes to travelling by rail in Italy, we can tailor a bespoke itinerary to fit your requirements, whether that’s a few days in Rome followed by a week relaxing in Sorrento, or a romantic city break in Venice topped off with a trip on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Here’s a few of our favourite itineraries to get you started… 

Italy’s ‘big three’ cities are connected by efficient high-speed services, making it easy to combine all of them in one culture-packed trip.  

After exploring the Eternal City, you’ll spend some time in Sorrento (gateway to the Amalfi Coast) before finishing up in Sicily. 

Venice and Verona are just over an hour apart by train – start off exploring Venice’s canals and palazzi, then head west to fair Verona.

This self-guided tour takes you from Turin to Florence via Milan, with plenty of opportunity for shopping and indulging in Italy’s aperitivo culture. 

Start or end your holiday in style with a trip on the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, travelling between London and Venice or Verona.
