Italy is one of the most visited destinations in the world and it has so many great cities to see and enjoy. I wanted to focus this guide on a few of the most beautiful cities there and a little bit more about traveling there by train. Especially because it is a very fast and efficient way to get around and see a lot. I hope you enjoy reading about it.
Why travel by train
One of the best things about train travel in Italy is definitely the fact that it is cheap, fast and efficient. Italy is not a huge country and many cities are located very close to one another, making train travel one of the best ways to get around and explore the entire country. European trains also tend to be extremely well organised and they run on time, which makes them very useful for people travelling not only in Italy, but the entire continent. I think it is one of the best ways to travel without a doubt.
Cities to visit
Rome is one of the most incredible places that you could possibly imagine and one of the most beautiful on the entire planet. It truly is somewhere where you can take a walk back in time and see much of Rome’s history. Imagine strolling the ancient streets and seeing ruins that are thousands of years old. There are of course the most famous sites like the Trevi Fountain, Colosseum and the Vatican, but there are hundreds of museums and historical sites that you probably never knew existed. Rome is one of those places that absolutely needs to be at the top of your list when visiting Italy by train. The next city you could visit could be Florence and you can take a train from Rome to Florence.
After taking the train from Rome to Florence, you will be in one of the most incredible cities on the planet and the birthplace of the modern world. If you can imagine every art museum or piece of art that you have ever seen, then you will start recognising everything. Here you can find Michelangelo’s “David” sculpture and so much more from the golden Renaissance period of art. The city is very unique with its narrow streets and beautiful buildings. It has some of the most iconic architecture in the . If you are hungry, you definitely need to try a Florentine steak, which is a delicious steak that comes from a Tuscan breed of cow called “Chianina”.
The south of Italy is known for its warm and welcoming people and Naples is a great place to visit by train as one of your next destinations.
Milan is the fashion capital of the world.
