All trains to Trieste depart from Milan Centrale station in the middle of the city. In Trieste, the station where they terminate is also called Centrale. From stazione centrale in Trieste, it is just a short walk south through the imposing new town (Borgo Teresiano) to Trieste's showpiece waterfront square, the impossibly grand Piazza Unità d'Italia. The fastest Frecciarossa train of the day, an evening departure from Milan, makes just five stops on the journey to Trieste. Most trains, however, make about eight stops and take over four hours. If you travel on one of the fast Frecciarossa trains on this route, you'll have - on most services - a choice of four different classes of seating, ranging from standard through premium and first to the ultra-posh executive class with its swish leather armchairs and complimentary refreshments. For most travellers, standard class suffices, but we do sometimes offer very good deals here on Loco2 on both premium and first class tickets on this route. It might be a chance to splash out and enjoy a little bit of extra comfort.
