Take the fabulous rail journey from Lyon to beautiful Torino/Turin, which involves a passage through the Alps.
Trenitalia has introduced its ultra smart Frecciarossa 1000 trains to this route and they have in effect replaced the TGV trains when travelling city centre to city centre.
These daily direct trains are usually scheduled to depart daily at 09:26 and 17:20.
Final Destination: Milano-Centrale
2 x trains per day
Book early and save: Yes
Online bookings usually open: around 4 months ahead of the travel date.
Frecciarossa 1000 trains on the domestic routes within Italy convey 4 classes of accommodation, but the Standard Premier service is not available on this international route.
Also 'Allegro' has been introduced as the branding for the Standard and Business Class, SMTJ isn't certain as to the reason for this, other than to make a distinction with the tickets on the domestic routes.

There is also usually a daily TGV train from Lyon to Torino/Turin, but it departs from Saint-Exupery station which is located outside the city at Lyon's airport, the train is scheduled to depart from there at 16:38.
This train travels through The Alps on either side of the France/Italy border - as it follows the Mont-Cenis route.
The best of the views are from the left of the train, when facing the direction of travel, so hope that your assigned seat(s) is on that side of the train.
