"Frecciarossa"Weng Fook l. 29/09/2014
We were fortunate to have bought the Business Super Economy seats at the same price of the economy seat. The coach is quite spacious and seats are comfortable. There were snacks and drinks provided during the journey. Train arrive and reach destination on time. Good! Value for money Convenience

"Italian trains"Slavka t. 27/09/2014
Travelling by train for short distances is more fast and even more comfortable than by plane. The train was clean, the service excellent and the travel time shorter than if I did it by car. Value for money Convenience
"Easy to catch"Warren h. 27/09/2014
Very comfortable trip. It is easy to catch a train with all the details being displayed on arrival and departure boards as in airports. Also many announcements are in English which helped us.First Class is very comfortable. Value for money Convenience
"Italian Railway Trips"Bruce m. 27/09/2014
We were very impressed with the Frecciarossa rail system on trips from Rome to Naples and from Salerno to Rome. Seats were comfortable and the trains clean and well maintained - only minor complaint was the state of the toilets .... Value for money Convenience
"Excellent"Thomas g. 25/09/2014
Would recommend this form of travel to anyone touring Europe. So convenient and comfortable with a beautiful view of the countryside. Value for money Convenience
"Not enough space for baggage"Chaminda f. 21/09/2014
Generally all the trains do not have much space for the luggage which is a bit of a concern....Also to get in to the train and get down from the train (if it is not the first or last destination of the train journey) with your family with young kids with many numbers of baggages is one hell of a mission i should say...... Value for money Convenience
"fast not loud"P J v. 21/09/2014
Travelled from Milano to Bologna. Perfect! Value for money Convenience
"Promises slightly misleading"Vanessa e. 20/09/2014
When we purchased our first class tickets, we were led to believe there would be wifi, more room for luggage and a glass separator between passengers. There was none of this-be aware. The seats are more comfortable and slightly larger than 2nd class, there is NO WIFI and we were unlucky enough to not have a window (depends on which seat you are allocated which you cannot change). There is no extra room for luggage, you have to be able to get it above your head in a small open rack and if you have a large case, it will be unstable and not recommended. Otherwise there is no space for luggage. Definitely recommend travelling by train though, as you arrive right at the Grand Canal in Venice, do not have to deal with airports so it will be quicker and easier than navigating flights.

"Wonderful train trip "Terrence b. 19/09/2014
What a wonderful experience! We found ourselves booked in Business coach - comfy seats and service. Being the last train trip in Europe this really made our holiday very special. Would definitely recommend travelling through Europe by train. Trains are on time, have space for luggage and allow you to relax and enjoy the scenery, Value for money Convenience
