Milan on Track

They're rarely on time, but Italian trains are inexpensive, comfortable and offer a postcard-perfect view of the countryside, particularly the Eurostar trains which are faster, nicer and slightly more expensive than regional ones. Despite a recent price hike, Italian trains still cost at least 50 percent less than those in France or Germany, and the quality of service is about equal. To give you an idea: Milan to Florence is €36.10 or €51.30 in first class, and Rome to Milan is four-and-a-half hours at €56.10 or €80.80 in first. There's a five-percent discount if you book online.
