"Unreliable trains" Italy Transportation Tip by travelthrough

Italy Transportation: 349 reviews and 277 photos

Trains in Italy (TRENITALIA) are very unreliable and almost always unpunctual. Try not to book a journey where you must change
within 1 hour spare time!!
Almost every train I have seen was delayed
and sometimes the whole system collapses
due to strikes.
Also mind that the "binario" (platform/track) changes when a train is delayed and you
must look for it and ask.

Type: Train
