  • "Florence-Venice trip"    
    Great way to travel  
  • "Sempre la Frecciarossa"    
    The train is my favourite form of transport in Italia. The Frecciarossa is superb - you arrive exactly on time, totally relaxed. I only wish we had such services in Canada ...    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Fast train Florence to Rome"    
    Very easy to book and arrange. Train was comfortable and on time. Would use this service to book on line and travel again.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train to Bologna"    
    The train did not depart from the platform we were told it was to depart from. We found out only minutes prior to departure the correct platform and barely made the train, even though we had arrived hours before the train departed. There was no map indicating where the various platforms were located and we had to switch platforms. The schedule displays did not indicate the platform for the appropriate trains, but they did indicate the times. The ride on the train itself was very good.    Value for money  Convenience
