Top Tips For An Affordable Italian Vacation: Explore Milan For Less

International Rail, not only can you save on travel fees across Italy – but if you follow our helpful tips you can also enjoy an affordable vacation overall

There is a common assumption that major capitals in Europe are expensive to visit, and Milan is one of them. Between travel, accommodation and tourist attractions, many feel that it's a holiday that is simply out of reach. With International Rail, not only can you save on travel fees across Italy - but if you follow our helpful tips you can also enjoy a more affordable vacation overall.

Milan-Cathedral

As the official Australian representatives for Trenitalia, International Rail can offer travelers access to affordable rides on fast trains such as the Frecciarossa, Frecciabianca and other Eurostar Italia trains. There are also regional, intercity and international trains available. These are incredibly affordable and fast, saving you time and money and giving you freedom to explore all of Milan and Italy as you see fit.

With your transportation needs affordably taken care of, here are a few other ways you can optimize your travel budget to go further:

 

Book Out Of Season

For the cheapest rates avoid travelling between May and September and rather visit during the off peak spring and autumn months between November and March.

 

Explore Further Afield

While the more famous areas of Italy are well worth exploring, so are the regional areas outside these major metropolitan areas. Visiting these areas is likely to offer better rates on everything and with your Trenitalia pass you could get to any destination easily.

 

Plan Ahead

Many popular tourist attractions and venues offer great discounts if you purchase tickets online or months in advance of your visit. If you can commit to this it is a great way to save money on a future trip. It will also save you time on queuing.

 

Walk Around

If you plan your train rides to cover long distances, you can have enough time to explore certain areas that are best seen by foot. With so many beautiful sights and sounds in Milan, walking will be a pleasure.
