    "Smooth ride"

      Margaret t.  22/10/2014
    What a wonderful way to travel....too bad we don't have efficient train travel in the U.S. It was so easy to book online before travel and not have to worry about tickets at the train station. I do think it may be a little difficult to understand on-line just what the car you ride in will look like but it almost adds to the adventure. We had a separate compartment for four. We were lucky that only the two of us were there, it could have been a little cramped with four. The speed of the train was incredible. We loved it!    Value for money  Convenience

    "super fast"

      Trieu-hai Maurice d.  21/10/2014
    Train makes the journey much shorter with its high speed. The onboard washroom is usable but can be a bit cleaner. With pre-booked ticket, the cost is much more reasonable than buying on the spot.    Value for money  Convenience

    "Great experience"

      Cindy o.  21/10/2014
    We had a great time by travelling with Frecciarossa. This is our first experience taking train in Italy. It is very comfortable as we mange to booked business class seats for the price of economy sears during promotion period. Which we think it is very affordable. And we had a great experience in the train. The service is just like we as if we are in an airplane. And of cox it is very convenient for us to walk to our hotel as we stay near to train station from Rome to Milan. We will definitely be back again for taking this train as an option for travelling Europe. Thank you so much for the great experience .    Value for money  Convenience

    "Ease of Travel"

      Emmanuel a.  21/10/2014
    Traveling by train within Europe is very convenient and a quick way to go around . However , I wish there would be more spacious waiting area for passengers so we do not have to stand for hours waiting for our train . Also, I wish that there be porter in every station who are in uniform so they can be properly recognized with a set fees .    Value for money  Convenience

    "The way to go Rome - Venice"

      Einar Josef j.  20/10/2014
    This is the perfect way to go Going Rome - Venice, city center to city center. No time wasted on transfer, check in, security control, baggage drop, wait in lobby, boarding. So it's actually faster than air travel. If you invest in 1st class tickets, you may also enjoy free newspapers and some snacks during the ride. A quite limited selection of each, though. Maybe Frecciarossa could crank this up a bit ?    Value for money  Convenience

    "Booking on the internet"

      Robyn w.  20/10/2014
    We recently booked a train trip from Venice to Rome. I was delighted that it all worked out perfectly as I was a little insecure about getting tickets over the net. It was comfortable for us as a family and there was space for our suitcases. We really enjoyed the trip. Many thanks.    Value for money  Convenience
