    "Like driving a Porche."

      Pieter f.  11/04/2014
    This Italian fast train has shaped leather seats and electric adjustments - and they clean the toilets every 20 minutes. What an experience! And on time! One can go to Italy just to ride their trains! Just travel light (about 15kg)!    Value for money  Convenience

      Chattan k.  26/02/2014
    Everything went well except that we got off at the wrong station because we could not see the platform from our carriage, but that was not a major problem as we took another train back to the intended station after 1 hour.    Value for money  Convenience

    "My comments."

      Wai Kee Nick l.  30/01/2014
    Overall everything is good. The only problem is tha the seat and space are tight and narrow inside the train car. The ventilation inside the train car is not so good, it is a little bit airtight. All the others are good.    Value for money  Convenience

    "this was a very difficult trip"

      Brad w.  09/01/2014
    we booked a trip online from Rome to Zurich. the online booking service booked us with a 15 minute layover in Milan. we are a family of five with three children, ages 9, 7, and 3. we had 5 very heavy bags and 6 pieces of hand luggage. I was worried we wouldn't make it from one train to another in that brief interval. Our first train was 40 minutes late arriving. The Trenitalia staff signed our ticket so that we could get on the a later Zurich-bound train, but did not have the means to give us a new seat assignment, so, after a 3 plus hour wait, we had to board the Zurich-bound train, with all the other extra passengers, and the regular passengers, willy nilly, with all our baggage, not knowing whether we'd have to move it all the length of the train, and whether we'd find seats for all of us.    Value for money  Convenience
