Trenitalia’s summer timetable came into force on Sunday 14 June 2020, with many new features to meet the demands of tourists and leisure passengers – including a push towards digitalisation with the new Trenitalia app.
Restarting the whole of Italy, from north to south, is the focus of Trenitalia’s 2020 summer timetable. The new connections are aimed at meeting the new demands for mobility, with the emphasis being on people and their needs.
There are new links with Frecciarossa and Frecciargento connecting Reggio Calabria to Turin and Venice, a new route with the Frecciarossa 1000 that connects Milan and Rome to the eastern coast of Liguria, to Versilia and Monte Argentario in Tuscany. And, for the first time, the Frecciargento will link Florence to Apulia, directly. These are the most important developments for summer 2020.
The new stops that the Frecce trains will make, together with the links with InterCity and regional trains, are an integral part of a larger plan to develop domestic tourism. This summer it is essential to provide connections to discover, and revisit beautiful areas of Italy by train. With its widespread network of lines and stations, it comfortably brings together every corner of the country. In this way it will also be easier to spread tourism so that it does not just flow to the major historic cities, or the best-known beaches and mountains, but also to small- and medium-sized places which are highly attractive as tourist destinations, because of their landscape or cultural heritage.
The FS Italiane Group is driven by its continual commitment to environmental, social and economic sustainability, fundamental values behind all FS Italiane business processes. This also drives the best first- and last-mile connections around the country, and easy links to other forms of public transport and/or shared mobility. The aim is to encourage more and more people to leave their cars at home, to the extensive and significant benefit of the entire transport system and air quality in cities.
