Travel Guide 2020: Exploring Italy by Train

Frecciabianca train on station in Venice

Whenever the name Italy is mentioned, our minds sway to Rome and the sovereign Vatican City. To a certain degree, we cannot help it, because these are the world’s greatest travel destinations.

Also, the traffic is nerve-racking and you probably don’t want to drive during a vacation. Thus, exploring Italy by car may not be the perfect option. If you are looking for a faster, more relaxed and more practical way of […]
