Next time you’re stuck in traffic on the highway, consider those lucky Italians. Some will get to ride in style next week when services on the slick Italo high-speed train kick off.

Operated by Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori (NTV), the Italo debuts April 28 and will connect Milan, Rome, and Naples. It’s being billed as the most advanced train in Europe.

It has a top speed of 186 mph — not the fastest in the world but still respectable. The record for fastest commercial service depends on several factors, but Shanghai’s Maglev Train can run at 268 mph.
