There are hourly trains from Milan to Padua, and sometimes more. This 230-km route follows traditional rather than high-speed lines, so the pace is moderate. The landscape on this route is initially flat, becoming more interesting as you travel further east. There’s a tantalising glimpse of Lake Garda just prior to Verona and a particularly lovely stretch east of Verona where the route passes through the Soave wine region.
Bookings for the journey from Milan to Padua usually open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.
