04 Dec 2013 Travelling in Italy: Car vs. Train
Italy has a robust transport and communication sector that includes all the main means of transportation used all over the world. With sea ports and an elaborate road and rail network, Italy boasts of a well-developed railways system, modern roads, standard airports and sea-ports. In this post, the main focus is on railway and road networks in this European nation. Away from the port cities, there is no better way of touring the Italian cities other than by train.
The railways network in Italy is so diverse that it links almost every important city or town. It is true to state that all the cities of Italy are intertwined in the railroad network. A major benefit of traveling by train in Italy is the shorter times you can take depending on the kind of train you take and the destinations in question. A major train in the country that many use is the 186 mph Frecciarossa train that links Naples through Rome and into Florence before going all the way to Milan in only four hours. At 186mph, you cannot beat these speeds by road.
