Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. A comfortable Frecciabianca train from Milan to Bari takes less than eight hours for the journey. Six direct trains each day travel this route from Lombardy to Italy’s Adriatic coast. You can sometimes cut the journey time a little by taking a high-speed Frecciarossa train from Milan to Bologna, changing there onto the onward train to Bari. But that option often increases the overall fare, so you might prefer to sit back and enjoy the comfort of the direct Frecciabianca train.

    Bookings for the journey from Milan to Bari normally open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.

    In addition to the direct daytime Frecciabianca service, there is also a useful night train from Milan to Bari, with a choice of seats, couchettes or sleepers for the overnight trip. This night-time route is so popular that there are on many evenings a choice of two departures from Milan to Bari.


    Milan Centrale to Bari Centrale

    The journey by train from Milan to Bari is initially across the pancake-flat North Italian Plain, but in time the Apennine Hills appear away to the south. At Rimini, 3 hrs into the journey, the train reaches the coast. You’ll catch a glimpse of the mountainous Republic of San Marino to the right, with the Adriatic to your left. The Frecciabianca trains stop 12 to 16 times on the journey from Milan to Bari. They leave from Milano Centrale and arrive at Bari Centrale.
