Venice weekend: Making tracks (aboard the Thello sleeper train)

Oct 19, 2013, 08:58 AM, Brescia, Lombardy, Italy

After a night of twists and turns in the dark, along with a transit of the Simplon Tunnel, once the longest of its kind in the world, we awoke to find ourselves sitting in a Milan station some time after we should have departed eastwards to Venice. It turned out later that the ninety minute delay was caused by staff availability issues, but it did allow us a slightly more leisurely start than we might otherwise have enjoyed. #ven13 #Thello #sleeper #train #Paris #Venice #Switzerland #alp #Milan #italy #fb
