Hi, I live 40 km from Milan. Better for you to take the train (faster and safe).

Train won't allow you to really explore outside towns served by rail, and you are limited to train schedules. Trains are frequent, but you'll be better off with a car. Driving in Italy isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Just remember traffic here flows like water, and you'll survive. almost 8 years ago
