Milan to Pisa by train

Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

Frecciabianca or Intercity

It is very easy to travel by train from Milan to Pisa, and the journey is filled with scenery. The fast trains that run direct between the two cities are either Frecciabianca or Intercity services – both offering reasonable comfort.

The route runs south from Milan through Pavia to reach the Ligurian coast at Genoa. It then turns south-east along the coast, with views of the Cinque Terre villages in the stretch just beyond Levanto. These are brief, however, for much of the line is in tunnels as it traverses the Cinque Terre coast. Sit on the right side of the train for the best views.

In addition to the fast trains, there are slow trains from Milan to Pisa each day. These do not run along the Ligurian coast, but take an inland route, making two dozen stops along the way.

Milan Centrale to Pisa Centrale

Fast trains each day leave Milano Centrale for the journey to Pisa, arriving at Pisa Centrale. These fast trains make between eight and 15 stops along the way, so this is not the typical Italian high-speed journey between major cities. The mood of this route is more leisurely and, with some decent landscape along the way, the train journey from Milan to Pisa is relaxing and pleasant.
