Getting around Italy

Hello!

I thought I would fill you in on my travel plans for next week with Joe as i’ve spent the morning looking for trains for us to get around. * Looks like it’s going to be an expensive week of travel.  

I’m also finding it quite difficult to locate trains as there’s at least 4 different websites giving different times and prices for all.

  • italiarail.com
  • trenitalia.com
  • trainline.eu
  • wandero.com

All these sites are great but I’ve got at leat 6 tabs open trying to find the best time and price. So, I think i’ve located them all and I thought i’d share them. Someone, somewhere may find the information useful. I thought I could also share an itinerary of what Joe and I will be doing and then I can fill you in properly once we’re back.
