"Purchase a seat"Beata v. 27/01/2015
Travelling by train in Italy is really comfortable. I can advice to purchase a seat, as trains during the week, especially in the evenings are quite crowded.
"First Class"Wai Yan c. 06/12/2014
First Class seating is very comfy, and there is free espresso and snack, newspaper. Satisfied! If free WIFI is available that's better

Frecciarossa provides a convenient service. I've traveled several times a year to and from Milano Centrale and have always had a good experience. The cars are clean and comfortable. The schedules accommodate my needs.

"Milano-Bologna trip "Marina p. 01/10/2013
I'm pleased by my trip. Although I had some difficulties to find the train's platform in Milano (need to add some information in electronic tickets : train #, or/and platform # , or/and train endpoint - as in my case, Bologna wasn't an endpoint, so I was confused) . Milano Centrale is well-organized station, differently from Bologna station,which is under reconstruction now , it was hard to find a proper gate for town exit. Bologna station personnel was very helpful.
