Rail Europe Introduces the Red Arrow

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Traveling from Rome to Milan? TrenItalia’s Frecciarossa, or Red Arrow, train is making the journey faster and more fashionable than ever.

The new high-speed train from Rail Europe will zoom across Italy at speeds of up to 186 miles per hour, cutting traditional travel time by a full hour. Even more impressive than the Frecciarossa’s speed is its cutting-edge style: Created by automotive designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, who achieved fame for works like the Ferrari 250 and the Maserati Merak, the new train is just as luxurious as a classic Italian sports car. Upscale amenities—like gourmet cuisine, attentive staff and a comfortable station lounge for relaxing pre-boarding—prove you don’t have to fly to travel first-class.

The Frecciarossa will connect Italy’s most important political and financial capitals in just three hours and 30 minutes. Starting December 13th, Rail Europe will add Turin-Milan and Turin-Rome routes. Visit for more information.
