Wondering what to see on your first trip to Italy? I recommend these three wonderful places: Venice, Florence and Rome. Those cities are the three biggest tourist destinations in Italy, and for good reason.
Viewing the trains list, you can know the distances covered by different trains by the same route. The speedier the train, fewer will be the halts/stoppages. So, if you choose a fast train you can reach your destination fast. Usually speedy trains cover long distances. You may come across the Duronto Express in the trains list to your chosen destination. Getting confirmed train tickets for Duronto is not so easy; you will have to book them several days ahead. Duronto Express train falls in the category of non-stop point to point rail services (except for operational stops).
You can also avail a cheap train ticket by buying a single ticket. Nowadays, some of the train companies are offering single train reservation. So, you can travel on one route with this ticket and can get back by buying cheap ticket from any other company.
A trip on the train gives you the freedom of space to relax, sleep, stretch and even stroll. But, to make your train trip worth it, you also have to be a smart in buying your ticket. Train tickets can be availed at cheaper price too, provided you know how to buy.
Children below 5 and child under 2 have different rules. A child may just need a half ticket and infants are not charged. Besides, there are discount fares for military personnel, students and senior citizens.
My Tip: You can even save money on fare by travelling “Off Peak”. This means that you must try to purchase tickets after 10 A.M during weekdays and on weekdays and weekends after 7 P.M. So, be somewhat flexible with your travel time.
Natural environment. Trains are usually eco-friendly compared to airplanes, vehicles, and motorbikes. They are really much more energy-efficient and the carbon emissions from trains are less dangerous to the environment because they are not released straightly in to the skies.
India is a land of exotic beauty and you should not forget to have a journey from Kalka to Shimla. This will give you a true feel of nature. You will really have an emotional entrance when the train reaches your beautiful destination Shimla where unparalleled is ready to greet you.
