Following our weekend in Bergamo to 'launch' EurMeet 2012, Gilly and I stopped off in Padova, before heading to Venice for our flights home.

We purchased our ticket from the ticket office (we could have used the ticket machine instead)
and went to the platform to wait for the train to Treviglio, where we would change for the train to Padova.
There was a short wait for our next train, which gave me chance to grab a drink from one of the many vending machines that are located on the platforms of train stations.

I really enjoy travelling by train, and especially in Italy, where the fares are cheap, the trains are on time and are clean and comfortable.

You also get to see some of the countryside, especially from the windows of the 'double decker' trains.

Fares vary depending on the type of train/ journey - Express or ones that stop at every village and lamp post. They can be purchased in advance on line, or in person at the ticket office.

Whichever ticket you purchase, you must validate it prior to boarding. Machines are located in the ticket office and at the entrance to the platforms.
Hefty fines are imposed for non-validated tickets.

On arrival at Padova train station, there is a TI office in the forecourt outside, where you can purchase tickets for the tram, buses etc. There is also a taxi rank, oh, and a bicycle rental office.
