It is very easy to take the train from Verona to Milan. There are two dozen or more fast trains each day leaving Verona, generally taking seventy minutes for the 150-kilometre journey to Milan. The train uses a new dedicated high-speed line between Brescia and Treviglio, which opened in late 2016. This 40-km stretch of new track trimmed about 15 minutes off journey times on this route. In due course, additional high-speed stretches will bring further time savings. Meanwhile, much of the route follows legacy railway lines, but with Trenitalia and NTV Italo locked in head to head competition on this route, both companies are using their smartest trains on the Verona to Milan run.
About 10 minutes after leaving Verona, there is an unexpected moment when Lake Garda suddenly appears on the right side of the train. The route west towards Milan is pleasant but pretty two-dimensional as the train crosses the North Italian Plain. However, the best of the views are all on the right side of the train.
Bookings for the journey from Verona to Milan generally open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.
