It's cheaper if you book this leg of the trip with Trenitalia. You can only collect the tickets once you reach Italy though (just use the ticket machines at Milan station). Book your return.
4. OPEN BOOKING.COM TAB
We've recommended some hotels at the bottom of the page. However, if you click the tab you'll find a wider selection of hotels.
