"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
"Very pleasent and convenient "Dalia e. 22/10/2014

"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
