Italy and summer - the two just fit together so well. That is why from 10 June 2018 onwards, MICOTRA trains will be taking you to the most beautiful excursion destinations south and north of the Carinthian Alps - with a lot of "amore", of course. What we also love: environmentally friendly, comfortable and stress-free travelling.

The launch of the first MICOTRA trains more than five years ago created an attractive local transport offering between Austria and Italy, connecting travellers and cultures. With the support of the EU and in collaboration with the Autonomous Province of Friuli Venezia Gulia and the State of Carinthia, the implementation of the project was a full success. The MICOTRA trains are operated by ÖBB and the regional Friulan railway operator Ferrovie Udine Cividale (FUC). The cross-border rail connection not only has a strong symbolic effect, but also opens up a new dimension for daily passenger transport. The two train pairs operate every day between Villach and Udine, and offer room for 150 passengers and their bicycles. For this year’s summer, the course has literally already been set in order to further expand this travel offer.

For all those who want to move ahead...

Next stop: Trieste. Explore Italy by bike - since 02 June 2018, MICOTRA trains run all the way to Trieste on the weekends and on holidays. In order to ensure that everybody reaches their destination comfortably, a capacity of 200 seats and approximately 150 bicycle spaces is offered on the entire route. This makes the trains the ideal complement for the Alpe Adria Ciclovia bicycle trail.

...and arrive in comfort

Your path is our goal. That is why this year, there will be cross-border local transport service to Tarvis from 10 June to 09 September 2018 - with connections to Udine and Trieste. Extending the rapid transit line S4 from Villach to Tarvisio via Boscoverde and Arnoldstein creates additional connections to local Trenitalia trains. In addition, the Austrian section offers a capacity of 100 bicycle places and 120 seats. In Italy, 30 bicycle spaces and 300 seats are available per train.

The prices apply to standard tickets (price example: one adult, 2nd class, price per person if tickets are purchased in Austria). The rate applies to cross-border local transport between Austria and Italy. National rates may result in price differences for cross-border transport.
