When planning a holiday for a family, couple or group of friends, it’s often difficult to get everyone to agree. One thing it will be easy to agree on, however, is whether to rent a car or go by train. Here’s why train tripping is better than road tripping.


Nobody has to drive

When taking a road trip, someone always has to be the driver. That means at least one person has to arrive at each leg of the destination tired. Add the stress of navigation and the possibility of getting lost, and you’ll be booking your train tickets any day now, so read why train tripping is the way to travel.

Comfort and views

If you ever went on a childhood road trip, you’ll know about the fight for a window seat, since nobody wants to be squashed in the middle of the back seat. On a train tripping ride, all seats are equally comfortable and have a good view. The seats on the new Trenitalia trains are especially comfortable, so make sure to book a trip on the Frecciarossa high-speed train.

Train Tripping and Sleep on the train

In cars, only the passengers can sleep and even then, it’s not in a comfortable bed. Overnight trains are a smart way of getting to your next destination fast while also saving on accommodation for the night.

Parking vs Train Tripping

On a road trip, you need to find a place to park your car safely overnight. What’s more difficult though, is finding places to park in metropolitan areas and especially at tourist areas like the Colosseum in Rome or the Duomo di Firenze in Florence. Since space is at a premium around these sites, parking costs a premium too.

The environment

Road travel is notorious for its high carbon emissions, and battery operated cars are difficult and expensive to hire. Luckily – there is a better way. train tripping – especially on the newer trains – have a much lower impact on mother earth, so you can enjoy your vacation guilt-free.
