When travelling by train from Florence to Milan, you have a choice of NTV Italo or Trenitalia Frecciarossa services, each offering hourly departures from Florence.
The route follows a high-speed line. Most of the stretch from Florence to Bologna is in tunnels, so the views are unexciting. Beyond Bologna, however, there are good views. Sit on the left of the train for glimpses of receding hills as you speed north-west towards the River Po and Milan.
Bookings for Trenitalia services on the Florence to Milan route normally open four months prior to travel. Bookings for NTV Italo services may open earlier. Book early for the cheapest tickets.
