How to get to Italy by Rail

Train journeys into Italy take you through some of the most beautiful countryside. You could enter Italy from the neighbouring countries. Eurail passes are accepted within Italy.

The Ferrovie dello Stato (FS) is Italy’s state railway service. It has a comprehensive network of routes and the trains usually run on time.

How to get to Italy by Road

You can drive into Italy from the bordering countries of Austria, France, Slovenia or Switzerland. Some mountain passes close in winter, so look out for that… also you need snow chains and anti-fog lights in the cold season. The Italian superhighway or autostrada has an extensive network: be prepared for hefty toll rates. You could purchase a Viacard, which is an automatic toll card that saves you the trouble of looking for change every time you hit a toll post. There is a system of minor highways that fall into the categories of ‘national’ (strade statali), ‘provincial’ (provinciali) and municipal (communali) that are toll free.
