Changing trains in Trento, now heading to Verona
I'm taking a faster Eurocity train, but it turned out it took more or less same time as with Regionale Veloce
At Verona, I'm changing trains again
This time, a non-Interrail train - .italo
I've never been on a .italo Pendolino, so now it's time
1st class coach 
One section of the coach is a Club Executive
There are complimentary snacks and drinks
The whole car is named Prima

Arriving at Milano Centrale

As I'm changing to another .italo to Torino and I have Club ticket, I'm able to access the lounge

The view from the lounge is great
Celebrating my trip with .italo and the approaching New Year with a glas of Prosecco
Giruno train at Milano Centrale

Time for my next .italo, which is an AGV, ETR 575

Here, there is also a Club coach
With at-seat entertainment
And some snacks too
This is a brie and zucchini sandwich


The main square looks much more empty than my last winter visit here in December 2018
