ItaliaRail, the experts on train travel to, from and around Italy, have announced that winter schedules and rates for high-speed train travel throughout Italy and the rest of Europe, are now available. Trenitalia, Italy’s only national railway recently updated and released their schedules and prices for travel from December 15, 2013 through early spring 2014.
Winter tickets for the Thello overnight train, which runs from Paris to popular destinations in Italy, are also now available.
The timing is perfect for travellers wanting to tour Italy during the holiday season, or after, when air fares and rates on accommodations are at their lowest. Booking early is recommended due to the availability of Super Economy fares. The fares can save travellers up to 75% off the original price for travel between popular destinations like Milan and Venice.
Sample Winter Economy and Super Economy high speed fares* include:
- Rome to Florence – $ 27
- Venice to Florence – $ 27
- Rome to Venice – $ 42
- Milan to Venice – $ 13
- Rome to Naples – $ 13
New winter fares for cross-border travel between Italy and destinations across Europe include:
- Paris to Venice – $ 79 (overnight Thello sleeper train)
- Venice to Vienna – $ 42
- Verona to Munich – $ 111
“We are pleased to announce the new winter timetable and access to deeply discounted train tickets. Winter is a wonderful time to see Italy by train. The beauty of snow on the Alps, fewer tourists at popular sites and affordable train fares, are all great incentives to book that cool getaway to Italy”, said Mike Fuller, President and CEO of International Rail LLC, parent company of ItaliaRail. To find the lowest fares, it is best to book as far in advance as possible.
