With a smart and futuristic appearance, and sleek interiors, the
Frecciargento can zip you across the magnificent colours and
landscapes of Italy in a matter of hours. In English, its title
means Silver Arrow and this fine locomotive can travel up to speeds
of around 160 mph on certain routes.
Originally known as the Italian Eurostar, the Frecciargento
forms part of Le Frecce, a series of high speed trains operating up
and down the country. These trains are operated by the Trenitalia
company, and were originally introduced in 1997 as the Eurostar. By
2012, the Italian Eurostar trains were changed into different
categories, with Frecciarossa being the fastest and Frecciargento
being the second fastest. Each Frecciargento train offers First and
Standard Class along with a restaurant for comfortable dining.
