Italy Train Travel: Milan Central Station
I travel the most frequently on the fast train lines served by the station. The frecciarossa fast train from Milan to Rome costs about 86 euro and takes a little over 3 hours.
Fast trains are all reserved seating, so your ticket will indicate your carriage number (carozza) and also your seat. The position where you will enter the numbered train car is indicated along the frecciarossa binarios (14 and 15) with a red sign. I suggests that you also then confirm that you are entering the correct train car with the number listed on the door. If you need assistance, conductors waiting along the tracks can help you with any questions. The frecciarossa cars have outlets for charging electronics. The overhead luggage compartments are larger than the frecciabianca and regional trains, but they are quite high and difficult to reach so putting luggage up there is difficult. I suggest packing very light with only carry on size bags if you have any train travel on your itinerary. If you have larger bags you will have to stow them in the luggage shelves at the end of the car. Bathrooms are located between the train cars. The frecciarossa trains are equipped with free wifi and serve light snacks and beverages.
Online tickets can be purchased from www.trenitalia.it, or you can purchase tickets at the station through the ticket office, the tourist office (useful if you need help in English), or the automatic ticket machines throughout the station.
