Train Travel Tip

I carry a copy of the Rail Map of Europe when I am traveling around Europe. Train routes and ferry routes as well as bus routes are shown if there are no trains. The map gives information on train schedules and trip length using pictograms. For large cities the maps’ focus is on routes between major cities i.e. travel information is given for trains from Rome to Milan but not every city in between. The map is useful if you are traveling  ithin Italy or will be visiting several different countries.

From the map you can see that there is one train every day, and three that run most days, from London to Aberdeen and that the trip takes 10 hours. The departure times are also indicated. The detailed legend is in English, French, German, Swedish and Japanese. Scale 1:4,125,000. The map measures 5 inches by 10 inches.

The only complaint I have seen is that a map of Scandanavia is overlayed on top of some of eastern Europe partially blocking some countries.

    I would ask if it would be possible to leave my luggage in termini station from 10:00a.m. to 18:00. Because in somewhere I read that the timetable to leave your luggage is until 12:30. And also which is the maximum weight?
    Thank you

    What’s the best way to get from Rome to Milan? I suspect it’s the train, but which station?
