The trains are pretty nice in my experience. The train from Ancona down to Ascoli is mostly on a lovely stretch of coastline and in the opposite direction from Ancona to Fabriano direction the line is nestled between spectacular hills. The trains SEEM to run on time, it’s easy to buy tickets and some of the trains and stations look a bit space-age like.
In summary, train travel isn’t very traumatic here.
- Check out this website for train times.
- Allow plenty of time for your connecting bus to be exceedingly late.
- Go the machines, it’s easier. And in fact, they tell you when your next train is too which is handy.
4. If you want to attempt your Italian, then select the Italian flag. Otherwise, select the English flag and follow the onscreen instructions (or the amusing sounding voice instructions).
5. You’ll get a huge ticket – a bit like this… At least it’s difficult to lose.
- Massive ticket
5. Then, BEFORE you get on the train, stamp your ticket at a machine…
6. Then find your train, get on it and have a splendid time somewhere.
