Rail Pass Users:
You can now book rail pass reservations without paying booking fees on the OBB website (OBB operates these trains).Though the process for doing so isn't particularly obvious, hence this step-by-step guide.
OR reservations can be arranged and paid for at the ÖBB Reisebüro desk in Wien Hbf - (ideally do this when you first arrive at Wien Hbf on the preceding train on your itinerary) or by calling OBB Customer Service (+43 5 1717).
Making the rail pass reservation online a minium of a couple of weeks ahead of the travel date, is particularly recommended if you will be traveling between June and September.
If you wait until arriving in Wien/Vienna to reserve, your first choice of accommodation may have sold out.

This is the only direct train between Wien/Vienna and Milano, but it has had its terminating station in Milano switched from the main station Milano Centrale to Milano Porta Garibaldi.
Not an issue for those heading to most areas of the city centre as Porta Garidbaldi is on line 2 of the Milan Metro and there are direct trains from Gabribaldi station to Arona, Stresa and Como; but connections are now more awkward when heading on destinations only served by trains from Milano Centrale, such as Genova, Sanremo and Pisa.
