  • "Fabulous Roma to Firenze"    
    This train trip was fantastic. I would chose this train rather than a flight to Firenze .The seating was comfortable and we were offered refreshments during our journey. If I was to be very fussy, as I was travelling first class and had two heavy suitcases, it would have been great if there could have been some assistance with the bags. Anyway, it was still a wonderful way to get to Florence and see some of the countryside as well.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Florence"    
    Hi- I actually wasn't able to go to Florence with this ticket. There was a family emergency in Iran and I had to go there instead. I couldn't refund the ticket because I don't speak Italian and had a very hard time on the phone, but I've traveled Rail Europe before and it's the best!!! sorry.

  • "Venice to Rome in Comfort"    
    Excellent trip by rail from Venice to Rome with Rail Europe. Very comfortable in second class. Carriages and toilets spotless. Plenty of baggage space. Only negative - no lounge space at Venice Station - we arrived two hours early and could not find any seating    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Frecciarossa"    
    We purchased our tickets online, not knowing we had been assigned the 'silent zone'. It was rather difficult for us with two teenagers as were excited about the new experiences and scenes we came across. I suggest the company clearly indicate zones for online purchases. Apart from that, we thoroughly enjoyed the train ride.    Value for money  Convenience

  • "my first time in fast train"    
    Everything was perfect... I just thought maybe that in that price may be included even only one thing with the choice, like water, or coffee, or some snack... Otherwise can`t wait to use frecciarossa again...:)    Value for money  Convenience

    Excellent. Comfortable trains and on time. A little bit expensive for a relatively short trip in my opinion.
