Last week I had to travel to our Italian Homes without a car.
I went to Rome and then to Umbria (Orvieto) and eventually stopped at Pisa to visit our Italian property at Borgo in Chianni and Ville degli Olivi.
Well … I was impressed on how TreniItalia improved, especially to move from important cities like Rome, Genoa, Florence, Pisa or Milan.
With the new fast trains, it takes about 3 hours to go from Milan to Rome. Considering that you leave from down town and you arrive at the centre of Rome, it is probably quicker than by plane.
In addition it is time you can use more effectively, on the train you can read, work and use your computer since there is also a wireless internet connection.
And most important, it is a eco-friendly way to travel, by which you can keep your CO2 production low.
If you are in the Chianti Pisano (Ville degli Olivi or Borgo in Chianni) and you feel you wish to visit either Rome, Milan or Florence, in circa 45 minutes from Pisa you can be in Florence from which in about 1 and half hour you would be in Rome, or going the opposite direction – in about one hour and forty-five minutes – you can be in Milan (from which by the way in about one hour and twenty minutes you can be in Turin).
It looks to me a relaxing and responsible way to travel around to large Italian city centres, leaving your car safely parked at your Home in Italy.
Ciao a tutti,
