General Information about Italian Buses

Italy is dotted with cities renowned for architectural beauty, vast historical centers, and fascinating monuments. The Italian coach network has developed into a simple and reliable way to travel between many of Italy’s main urban regions and centers. Within cities, suburban areas rely heavily on public transport, in some cases enhanced by private operators, and integrated with trams, trolley buses, and electric vehicles. Greater development of long-distance and suburban transport has meant bus options now provide travelers in Italy great options and reasonable prices to allow it to better compete with the train network.
