    "Milan to Florence"

      Basil k.  18/11/2014
    I was hoping to see more countryside, and my own fault that I did not check the route, but travelling underground was boring, and disappointing. Next time I would definitely like some scenery on the route. The snack was a joke! A stale packet of either sweet or savour biscuits and a half a cup of tea. Did without the snack on our second leg of our trip! It was a disappointing experience. For locals, as a means of transport, it would be okay, but for tourists with luggage, not a good idea! We had to lift our suitcases onto the top rack and at our age, and not being superhuman, it was really difficult. (All the lower spaces were full.)    Value for money  Convenience

    "booking process"

      Robert p.  14/11/2014
    The train itself was fine, but the station is chaotic and confusing. The booking process does not make any sense to me...there are too many steps for what should be a very simple experience.    Value for money  Convenience

    "Pleasant Journey on the Rails!"

      Barry b.  05/11/2014
    The journey was very pleasant and enjoyable out of Venice bound for Rome. The big problem facing rail travelers in Italy continues to be the surly customer service folks who man the ticket counters in the larger city rail stations, especially Roma Termini. Unpleasant and rude to the extreme the railroad employees act as if their jobs are secure no matter how they treat travelers seeking simple help or information. As an American accustomed to a modicum of customer service even from public employees the behavior of railroad customer service workers is appalling. Nevertheless the railroad in general appears reasonably well run and the onboard rail personnel are invariably professional and courteous.    Value for money  Convenience
