Whether you're travelling on a Frecciabianca or Intercity train, you can look forward to plenty of luggage space and air-conditioning, which will be welcome if you're heading off on a hot summer's day.

Book in advance

Most of the train companies across Europe release their tickets around three to six months in advance, many of which can be cheaper the earlier you book. If you know the dates you want to travel, you may be able to find some cheaper train tickets from La Spezia Centrale to Genoa by booking early.§

Be flexible with your travel times

Choose a slower or connecting train
