"No seats"Robyn k.
The train that I was on had additional passengers because there was a train that was cancelled, this is what I was told. I then had to stand for the majority of the train journey as there were other people allocated to my seats. There were numerous people that had to stand as well. Otherwise the journey was pleasent.

"The best way to explore Italy"Arnaldo p. 08/12/2014
I traveled with my wife to Rome, stayed a couple of days and then took the 6:30 am train from Rome to Florence. It was easy to book online, the seats were comfortable, the views were lovely and in just an hour and a half we were in our destination. We highly recommend exploring Italy by train.

"My third time "Cindy Sylvia Nantye a. 06/12/2014
This is my 3rd time using Rail Europe. They never disappoint me because the services are good. Going to Florence was a last minute plan and the tickets i bought was for 7 person. It's was a bit pricey, but it's OK because as expected the cost will be a little more than usual. I highly recommend to all to travel using Rail Europe, but if you need to buy your ticket in advance to get cheaper price. Keep up the good service Rail Europe. Value for money Convenience
