Italian trains : Italo


Italian trains : Italo

Italo isn’t just another great European train. It’s a fleet of the newest generation of high-speed trains offered by NTV (Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori), the first private operator in the Italian high speed rail network. It’s state-of-the-art train travel, redefining comfort, sustainability and safety at every stop.

Designed by global leader Alstom, Italo benefits from their years of engineering expertise in the rail industry. Italo weighs less than many other trains, which means it’s energy efficient and can reach speeds up to 186 mph. Italo offers travelers added comfort with larger windows, wider seats, more elbow room, smoke-free and air conditioned cars, plus the convenience of WiFi. The multi-lingual staff and lounge access (in the stations) make every journey a pleasure. The network offers service from Venice to Rome (stops in Padua, Bologna & Florence) and from Milan to Salerno (stops in Bologna, Florence, Rome & Naples). So while there are a lot of places to enjoy the past of Italy, you’ll find this is one place you can enjoy the future.

More details

If you are looking for comfort, safety and value for money to visit Italy’s main cities, look no further. Italo is the perfect way to discover Italy by train. Privately operated by NTV, Italo trains have an avant-garde look and feel, almost inviting you to jump on board hit the rails immediately. Learn more

    "I would travel with Italo again. Train depart and reached destination on time. Seats are comfortable, announcement was clear and train was very clean. The only acception is that compartment to put heavy and big lagguage was not sufficient. Could provide more space for heavy and big lagguage near to the door. Other than that, everything else is good. "

    "Our train trip to Venice was efficient and cost effective. It was easy to purchase our tickets on Rail Europe, (although we did not get confirmation until almost 24 hours after the purchase was made.) Italo is a wonderful rail line. Very clean and comfortable. It is our first choice when traveling in Italy. "
