Trains to Italy

Italy's stunning landscape lends itself to train travel, so it's no surprise that it makes up some of Europe's most popular routes. Trains to Italy from London are straightforward with Milan well-connected to Paris via TGV during the day, and the Thello sleeper train during the night.

Once you're there, Italy's extensive rail network transports you from the ancient Roman ruins to the magic of Venice in just a few hours by high-speed train. The older regional network also has local trains which, though less luxurious, serve smaller locales, meaning rail is a great option for exploring even the furthest Italian reaches.
