Eurail Italy Pass is the second most popular Eurail pass sold in 2011, according to Eurail Group G.I.E. - the organization dedicated to the marketing and management of the Eurail pass products.
Last year 68,732 passengers travelled on the Eurail Italy Pass – a massive 8.5 per cent increase on 2010 sales. Italy's railway network is as attractive as the country itself, offering an impressive high-speed system connecting Italy from North to South. As a result, rail travel has become increasingly popular within the country.
The fleet of Frecciarossa trains makes the non-stop connection between Rome and Milan possible in just 2 hours and 59 minutes. The Frecciarossa (Red Arrow) and Frecciargento (Silver Arrow), connect the whole of Italy, include onboard features such as: 20% more legroom than on average airlines, sound proofed and air conditioned coaches, room for luggage, electrical sockets, information displays in each coach, complimentary welcome drink and snack in first class and WI-FI internet access.
Ana Dias e Seixas, Marketing Director of the Eurail Group, said: “"The success of the Eurail Italy Pass is really the result of sales and marketing efforts by the entire Eurail team and its sales agents around the world. Of course an excellent rail and tourism product such as the one Italy offers is of importance as well."
