When traveling, I often rent a car so that I can get to those hard to reach places, but this time while spending a week in Italy, I decided to give my gas pedal foot a break and take the train.
Quite often trains are expensive in Europe but no so in Italy. I based myself in Bologna and took the train to go to Modena, Ferrara and also Ravenna. They're fast, comfortable and best of all, very affordable.
Take the train!
