Many of our clients ask us what is the easiest way to move around Italy, and we usually suggest utilizing the extensive rail network which connects all major cities

The Italian railway system has in time become one of the most reliable transportation systems in Italy, covering the Bel Paese from North to South in a way that allows visitors to easily move from one city to the next, without having to deal with car rentals and airfares. Trenitalia has in fact won the prestigious Italia Travel Awards on May 31, 2016. Select Italy ( - a boutique travel agency based in Chicago, specialized in travel to Italy - helps out all travelers who wish to purchase train tickets in “the boot,” making the process fast and easy.

Travel by train in Italy is a common choice for tourists thanks to the comfort and convenience it offers. Moreover, there are different types of trains from which travelers can choose depending on their needs. Trenitalia offers high-speed trains – known as the Frecce (Frecciarossa, Frecciargento) – but also Frecciabianca, Intercity and regional trains, departing from all stations in Italy and covering almost the entire country. In addition to these services, Trenitalia launched this past summer Freccialink, a Freccia train + bus to connect medium-size cities like Siena, Perugia and Matera with bigger cities that are part of Italy’s high-speed train network.

As the winner of the WTM (World Travel Market) 2015 World Travel Leaders Award, Trenitalia is the sensible solution for both visitors and locals to get from point A to point B, because it allows its passengers to sit back and enjoy the ride. The train stations are well equipped and organized to guarantee a smooth transfer, as well as give the opportunity to get some shopping done. Train stations in larger cities actually have an array of cafes and stores travelers can explore while waiting for the train.

“Many of our clients ask us what is the easiest way to move around Italy, and we usually suggest utilizing the extensive rail network which connects all major cities," says Justin Anderson, Manager of Operations & Client Services. "This way, they don’t have to worry about driving, which can be incredibly difficult and confusing due to restricted access in historical city centers and limited parking. Driving can also take much longer than the train. Rail travel allows you to sit back and enjoy the view of the magnificent Italian landscape, rather than being stuck in a traffic jam on one of Italy’s autostrada.”

Select Italy’s train booking interface is intuitive and simple to use. It is possible to reserve online Trenitalia tickets rapidly and safely upon entering number of travelers, date of travel, departure and arrival cities, and departure time. Tickets can be booked anytime, however, they cannot be confirmed more than 120 days before the departure date.
