  • "Overnight trip to Italy - Uggh"    
    We booked what we thought was going to be a charming overnight train ride to Italy from France in a first class cabin..... It was far from charming, we booked first class on line and at over 400 Euros we thought it would at least be clean. The tickets came out separate so we were not in our own room, it was filthy, the air condition controls didn't work, the shared toilets were filthy and all of the doors and cabinetry was loose so it rattled like crazy all night. We were advised our beds would be brought down to sleep, this never happened and had to figure it out ourselves. Anyway, it was horrible and if I didn't have a bottle of wine I wouldn't have been able to sleep. 2/10, wouldn't recommend it.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train service"    
    Train is punctual , fast and comfortable. A very good way to travel within Italy.  
  • "Good but delayed"    
    Overall it was quite a comfortable journey but the train got delayed just before Milan by 30 minutes or so which was not very convenient.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfortable ride"    
    We traveled in business class from Milan Central to St. Lucia in Venice and the journey was very comfortable. The refreshments served were just so so. It was some kind of dried pasta snack and a drink. This was not an issue for us since we were so tired from our flight from the US that we just slept through the entire journey.    Value for money  Convenience
