Frecciargento Train to Milan, from Zurich

Frecciargento High Speed Train to Milan, from Zurich

Taking a Frecciargento High-Speed Train to Milan, from Zurich, was a very good decision. Actually, I planned to take a long distance bus to Milan, but it turned out the Train Ticket I bought via SBB, the Swiss Federal Railways, was even cheaper than the Bus Ticket. 21 CHF for the Train from Zurich to Milan, and 10 CHF for the Train back from Milan to Zurich. In total 31 CHF (29,90€) return, this is almost impossibly cheap! And even two seat reservations were included!

There is barely anything I enjoy more than taking a Train. The landscapes are passing by and I am able to do whatever I like to do. Reading a Book, working on new Blog Posts or just listening to some Music and observing the Nature outside. I’m able to walk around and even to do some easy Fitness if there is Space (Lunges, Squats,..). At the Bord Bistro, it’s possible to buy Food and Drinks and compared to a Flight or a Roadtrip Trains are way better for our environment!

My Frecciargento High-Speed Train to Milan departed at the Central Station in Zurich, Zurich HB. The Train Station was first opened in August 1847 and it’s such a charming building, inside and outside. You can read more about the History of the Station on Wikipedia. There are 26 platforms and thanks to the Information Tables it was easy to find my Platform. You can check out the Timetable of the Train (EC 15 from Zurich to Milan) here, but unfortunately, there is no arrival Time for the Frecciargento High-Speed Train or SBB EuroCity Train to Milan in Zurich. Even though there is a Bord Bistro I bought my Breakfast already at Zurich Main Station.

The Line from Zurich to Milan is operated in a partnership of both SBB and Trenitalia. Therefore it’s possible the Route Zurich – Milano Centrale is either served with an SBB EuroCity Train or the Frecciargento High-Speed Train. In my case, it was the Italian Frecciargento. The Frecciargento High Speed Train is a “New Pendolino” Train, Model ETR 610. The Trains maximum speed is 250 km/h and has a capacity of 430 Passengers.

I really enjoyed taking a Train to Milan, from Zurich, and these 19€ (one-way) were an absolute bargain that I’m willing to buy again anytime soon. The staff by the Swiss Federal Railways SBB until Chiasso, and the Trenitalia Staff after Chiasso, were friendly and the Seats in 2nd Class were comfy enough for the 4,5 hour Trip. Right before Chiasso, the border train station, they announced Passport Controls.

      Trains nowadays are so cool, if you are on long distance and/or Fast Trains 🙂

      Eurostar and Thalys are next on my List, can’t wait to ride them (hopefully soon)!
