45 CulturaThere are several types of trains in Italy an it is a good idea to know which types to avoid-unless you are fond of long train trips! Il treno regionale is a local train, which stops at every little stations: not a good idea if you need to cover long distances.Il treno locale is a little faster than the regionale, though still not very god for long distances. Il treno expresso and il treno diretto go fast but not as fast as the Intercity or the Eurostar: these are more expensive but to travel between big cities such as Naples, Rome, Florence, Milan, Palermo, are ideal. For example from Florence to Rome the Eurostar takes 1 hour and 35 minutes, the Intercity takes 2 hours and 29 minutes, and the diretto takes 3 hours and 37 minutes. All the schedules for departures and arrivals use the 24 clock.
