In a strategic move to bolster tourism and provide convenient travel alternatives, Trenitalia is significantly expanding its summer rail services. The new schedule, effective June 9, was unveiled in Rome by Trenitalia CEO Luigi Corrado, promising improved connectivity to key tourist destinations including Miramare Castle and Park, as well as the popular beaches of Lignano.

New Connections to Miramare and Beyond

With the advent of the summer timetable, six regional trains on the Trieste-Portogruaro line will now make stops at Miramare station, affording tourists easier access to the historic castle and its surrounding natural beauty. This enhancement comes with minimal adjustments to current travel times, ensuring efficiency alongside convenience.

Special Services for Cruise Passengers

In a bid to cater to the influx of cruise passengers docking in Trieste, Trenitalia is introducing four special trains on the Trieste-Venice line. These trains, designed to align with cruise ship schedules, will only stop at key stations: Trieste Airport, Quarto d’Altino, and Venezia Mestre. This targeted service aims to streamline travel for cruise tourists, offering a seamless transition between sea and rail.

Enhanced Routes to Grado and Lignano

The enhancements extend to those traveling to Grado and Lignano, with select Frecce trains scheduled to stop at Cervignano and Latisana during the peak summer period. From Latisana, passengers can benefit from an impressive 46 daily bus connections to Lignano Sabbiadoro, facilitated through a partnership with Arriva Udine. This extensive service ensures that beachgoers have reliable and frequent transportation options.

Trieste to Muggia by Sea

In Trieste, a novel maritime connection will allow travelers to reach Muggia from the main station via 31 daily boat runs. This initiative underscores Trenitalia’s commitment to offering diverse and innovative travel solutions, capitalizing on the scenic allure of coastal navigation.

Promoting Eco-Friendly Travel

Additionally, Trenitalia is introducing several incentives for cyclists, promoting eco-friendly travel options. These measures are expected to encourage more tourists to explore Italy’s picturesque landscapes by bike, further enhancing the country’s sustainable tourism efforts.

As the summer season approaches, Trenitalia’s expanded services are set to redefine the travel experience for tourists and locals alike, offering enhanced connectivity to some of Italy’s most treasured coastal destinations.
