At right, you can see a Circumvesuviana train at its Sorrento terminal. This narrow-gauge network provides commuter service around Naples. Its stops include the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, which were destroyed the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD.
An Italian Eurostar train rests at Rome's Termini
station. These trains provide high-speed service
between major Italian cities. These trains have no relation to
the Eurostar trains between London and Paris under the English
Channel. The Chunnel operators found that Italian railways had
trademarked the name first.
The climb to the top of St. Peter's provided this
unexpected reward, a view of the Vatican railway station. The
station didn't appear to be active, unlike a commuter station
(named San Pietro) a few blocks away.
Non-stop trains connect Rome's Termini and Leonardo Da
Vinci International Airport. One of these trains is shown here at
Termini station. Advertising adorns the side of the train. (Kimbo
is a brand of coffee.)
