  • "Delayed due to Technical Issue"    
    It was a frustrating journey from Venice to Milan as the train had technical concerns that had halted every 10 mins, causing a delay of 2 hours to reach Milan. Due to which, we missed our train from Milan to Luzern and were forced to the next train that was departing 1 hour later from our arrival in Milan. Moreover, the train we were told to take didn't have reserved seats for us and no Wi-Fi.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great trip"    
    I love the Frecciarossa trains in Italy. They travel at high speeds, are very comfortable and also affordable. The toilets can just be kept cleaner.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "2nd Train Trip Ever"    
    This was only my 2nd trip by train ever. The Nice station was only a 10 minute walk to/from our hotel. We traveled from Nice to Milan, and changed trains in Milan to Florence. The trains were on time, clean, and very quiet. Saw some beautiful country on our trip. Very easy    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Excellent Service"    
    Clean, punctual and efficient. A real pleasure    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Florence to Venice"    
    We booked as a couple in business class but, unfortunately were allocated seats in a four which meant we could not stretch out our legs. However, the seats were comfortable enough. Although we were in business class we were only offered one small plastic cup of soft drink and a tiny snack. British business class service beats Frecciarossa hands down. However, in Italy the train beats driving anytime! The journey was quick. Watch out for porters grabbing your bags and then demanding money for helping you.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train trip review"    
    All good except that the train platform information is released far too late.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Met expectations "    
    Train arrived late by 1 hr. Nothing much to shout about and I got to my destination.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great trip!"    
    I booked my train travel from home, and printed my ticket before I left. Everything worked very well. I would highly recommend this method of travel. Thank you! Jane    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Andrew Steyn"    
    It was an experience for all of us.Very relaxed and comfortable.We saw the other side of Italy.We will definitely make use of Italian Trains next time.  
  • "easy travel"    
    The train was easy to board and get off at our destination. The ride was smooth and comfortable.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfortable Trip"    
    A perfect way to travel.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "not bad"    
    It is impressive that the train is not affected by the strike.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Paris to Milan Over Night"    
    The trip was ok but as a first time user, I thought my first class ticket may get me a little more for the money. I was relieved at the relative privacy of a three bed cabin but thought the dining car could have been better. The staff were friendly and the trains were perfectly on time. The timing suited me well    Value for money  Convenience
  • "A comfortable experience "    
    This was our first train ride in Italy and we were so impressed by its efficiency and comfort. The only downside is the porter that waits inside the train car to supposedly help you with luggages and asked for a Euro10 tip considering that we already refused his assistance. Other than that, everything was a okay!  
  • "Business class at a promo rate"    
    It was worth to take the business class for a 4 hour trip especially since we got a promo rate since we booked a month ahead. We appreciate the free drinks and snacks plus the free Wi-Fi. Very relaxing seats with spacious leg room.    Value for money  Convenience
