Istanbul to Italy?

Hi! Me and my friend are planning our trip to Europe, we wanted to start from Turkey in Istanbul and from there to go to Italy, so is there a train line from Istanbul to Rome (or another city in Italy)???

Also how can I check all the train lines in Europe?

Thank you!

Hello Yshai,

Thanks for the question.

We would like to inform you that we do not have train services in Turkey hence you can start you journey from Sofia. You will have to check locally about your travel from Turkey to Sofia.

As you wish to travel to Rome, you can follows the below route:

- Sofia to Belgrade – Not bookable on our website hence has to be booked locally.

- Belgrade to Zagreb – Eurocities train.

- Zagreb to Venice via Ljubljana and Villach – Eurocities and Other trains.

- Venice to RomeFrecciargento train.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
