  • "Florence Trip"

    This is a comfortable trip, we booked economy buss class and was comfortably seated.  
  • "No address for train"

    It was very hard to find our train, since there was not a train that directly went to Firenze and there were two trains at 16.35. We tried to find the one which passes from Firenze and ended up in the wrong train. So in conclusion : There should me more information on the ticket ... Like the platform, or the terminal station... etc. However, an officer kindly changed our tickets and we had a very comfortable (and lucky) journey.    Value for money  Convenience

    The coach was comfortable with glass panels to provide privacy and quiet time during the trip. Train was clean,but bins were full of rubbish of previous passengers.These should be emptied at each stop. There is also not enough adequate storage area for tourists with luggage.It is not possible to lift up heavy wheelie bags and store them in the overhead shelf.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Good Trip"

    We purchased our Frecciarossa tickets online before trip started to get a good deal, printed them out and hopped on the train in Florence with ease. Just to make sure we knew what we were doing, we went to the station the day before and spoke to a very helpful person in a kiosk, making sure that my print-out was going to work as a ticket. It did. We had a great experience all around.    Value for money  Convenience
