Traveling in Style on a High Speed Italian Train

Trenitalia - First Class

There is nothing like traveling on a high speed European train.  In October 2008, I traveled first class from Rome to Bologna on Trenitalia’s high speed line.  Other than zipping through the beautiful Italian countryside, the highlight was sitting in first class and being served a delicious three course Italian lunch.  My friend and I started with a glass of Prosecco and pasta.  Our second course was sliced steak served with gravy and sautéed mushrooms (see photo below).  We ended our lunch with a lemon tart and strong, Italian espresso. Buonissimo!  It was by far the best meal I have had on a train to date.

I highly recommend traveling on Trenitalia – even in 2nd class.  If you have a few extra Euros, travel by first class, by all means!  For more information on Italy’s high speed line, click here.
