About Italy


The Eternal City’s main sights include the Vatican City’s frescoed Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Square to Ancient Rome relics like the Forum, Pantheon and Colosseum. Stop by Piazza Navona’s ornate fountain, climb the Spanish Steps and throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain to guarantee your return. From Termini station, visit the majestic Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica. Stroll among the former Jewish Ghetto’s tiny streets and crumbling façades, across from Trastevere. Near the synagogue, find Forno del Ghetto (Burnt Bakery), renowned for its slightly-burnt, caramelised pastries, and one of the only bakeries preserving traditional Jewish Italian cooking.

Try local specialities like trippa alla Romana, tripe in tomato sauce and Pecorino cheese, and saltimbocca alla Romana, veal scallops with wine, sage and prosciutto in the trattorias of Trastevere and Testaccio districts. Wash down with Frascati wine and leave room for mouthwatering Roman gelato (ice cream). Don’t miss Piazza Campo de’ Fiori’s fruit and veg market.

Via dei Condotto is designer central, lined with Armani, Prada and the rest while pedestrianised Via del Corso is crammed with global brands. Art lovers love browsing the galleries and antique shops around Piazza Navona while Sunday’s Porta Portese flea market is a Roman institution.

    Night train to Paris |
    "Hi, We recently travelled overnight by train from Venice to Paris. The booking process was horrendous and we ended up paying nearly $500AU for each person. I asked for a price for 4 people, accepted the price I was given and when I paid, only 1 ticket for 2 people came. I was then told it was that much again for another 2 people! The room on the train was clean and ready and we were given free drinks on arriving. At 2am we were woken by border patrol banging on the door for room check and search which we did not expect and was quite invasive. The breakfast was ok, but not great, and staff were all very pleasant.l "

    Quick and easy! |
    "We found the access to the trains easy from both our departure and destination. The 3.5 hours went quickly, and liked the ease of walking straight off the train with our luggage, instead of waiting for luggage when flying. The seats were comfortable, but was very close to the person in front of you. All up it was a great trip! "

    "There were 4 of us travelling together and we had seating with a table between us which was very convenient. There was food and drinks available to buy in the carriage behind us so that was very handy as being an early start we were all in need of something. The seats were comfortable and the passing countryside interesting. A great way to travel and we would certainly do it again! "

    Great way to travel |
    "The train was on time, clean, spacious and very fast. We had time to take in the country-side as well as catch up on some much needed rest. I thoroughly recommend this train service and will be telling my friends of this great experience. Just beware of the baggage handlers who are not associated with the train service. "
