We’re travelling to Milan on the new high speed train (called Frecciarossa – or red arrow). It’s very fast (just over an hour) but more expensive than the slower local trains (up to 3 hours).
For this train you need to book your tickets in advance because it may be fully booked at the start of the weekend.
We’re catching the 09.40 train (arriving in Milan at 10.45). The cost of a one-way ticket is 41 euros.
On the return journey you can pay less for the slower trains or book onto the fast train at the same price – but you will have to specify your return train if your’re travelling on the Frecciarossa because of the need for a reservation.
We can help with ticket purchases at the Stazione Centrale at 18.00 (6pm) Wednesday: you can meet us in the middle of the main concourse of the station. Before this, you should check the TrenItalia website to check your preferred return times.
