Verona to Milano / Milan / Mailand by train

When heading to Milan from Verona by train, there is a choice between taking:

1: the Regional trains, they're more frequent and generally cheaper (they will be when booking last minute at the station)
However, they're also the slowest option and seats can't be reserved; though modern, smart double-decked trains are now used on most departures.

2: the express trains, which are faster and seats are assigned when booking, but the speed comes at a price because they tend to be more expensive.
Fastest of all are the Frecce trains operated by Trenitalia and the rival Italo trains; because these two services whizz down the high speed line between Brescia and Milano.
