  • "Easy and safe way to travel"    
    Traveled first class from Venice to Verona. Venice train station is a lot easier to get to than the air port, and the transport is spacious and comfortable. A bit of a hassle with our large luggage as the first class carriage didn't have luggage storage. Luckily the carriage was only half-full so we could put the bags on spare seats. Smooth and pleasant trip.    Value for money  Convenience

  • "Rome to Milan"    
    The service was good, on time and the stations were easy to use with luggage and not speaking the language. There were no elec sockets on the train, otherwise, all a smooth trip    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train "    
    Comfortable. Would have appreciated a map on board showing the trip. No English was used for announcements,so it made us uneasy. Luckily we found a passenger who spoke English. Having bought the tickets online it would have been appreciated if a map had been provided showing the trip for me to print at home. The train was quite full so we felt safe.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Storage space needed"    
    It was an expedient but not truly convenient way to travel if you have plenty of luggage, since there are barely any compartment space for luggages except for the overhead compartments and some tiny spaces in between seats. Just try to lift your 50 lbs suitcase to one of them. Joy.    Value for money  Convenience
