    "Comfort but Beware of "Helper""

      Hui Teng t. 
    The train ride was on time and the seats were clean. The only issue I had was as we were walking towards the train, a man who dressed like the conductor tried to help me direct me to the right cabin, than he grabbed my luggage and "helped" me to my cabin. I thought he was the contractor who tried to make sure the train leave on time. It turned out he just want tips for helping out. When I tipped him 2 Euros with just 1 carry on he helped, he told me it's not enough... I told him that's all he will get. Just a friendly reminder to take note of these people.    Value for money  Convenience

    "Easier to travel by train"

      Dennis p.  15/09/2014
    I must say that traveling with the Frecciarossa was really a wonderful experience. The only possible issue would be the cost of food on the train which was very expensive. Our first hand experience of this means of travel was however still very positive.    Value for money  Convenience

    We recently traveled Italy by train. It was an awesome experience. The train was on time. It was clean and neat. The personal was friendly and professional. We felt extremely comfortable and safe on the train and the stations. In future we will not travel by any other means.    Value for money  Convenience

    "Italy trip"

      Ramakrishnan t.  13/09/2014
    Very convenient My only negative observation is that I was unable to access the free wifi on the train I do not have a phone to receive the username and password that is given as a message This needs to be looked into    Value for money  Convenience

    "Enjoyable trip with family"

      Yilun y.  12/09/2014
    They auto arranged the 4 seats with the table. That is a nice setting for a family, especially with a baby. If the luggage space nearby is big enough, that will be perfect.    Value for money  Convenience

    "super trip"

      John y.  12/09/2014
    Everything went very well indeed; the trip itself was great and the train very smooth and comfortable. Rome Termini could improve their signage (for example you can only find the lost luggage if you are moving towards the platform, not if you have arrived by train!)    Value for money  Convenience

    "Very comfortable"

      Sohil p.  12/09/2014
    The Frecciarossa train was very neat and tidy and the seats were very comfortable too. Punctual and it departed from Milan and reached Napoli on the scheduled time The bag storage area is very apacious too. Large windows perfect to enjoy the lovely Italian countryside during the ride Definitely recommended and would surely travel again The travel display at milan station was upto date too    Value for money  Convenience

    "Good experience"

      Xi c.  11/09/2014
    The train came on time, the seat was comfortable. If there is more English indicate, and each stop the broadcast use both Italian and English would be better.    Value for money  Convenience

    The train journey was interesting as far as scenery goes but in travelling to Aosta, which the tickets stated, we didn't realise we had to change trains at Chivasso and again at Ivrea. This made the journey very long and tiring as after changing trains twice, we had another two hour or so journey before we reached Aosta. However, travelling 2nd class is not that different to 1st class as there is no restaurant on the train anyway so be sure to take your own water and snacks otherwise you are inclined to get desperate. We found that booking our tickets from S.Africa made life much simpler. All tickets were able to be printed online except the one from Milan to Aosta. This one has to be validated at the train station. The others all stated coach and seat numbers which was much easier and quicker to manage and made things much clearer when pushed for time. It is best to allow at least an hour for connections so as not to be harassed. Bev. South Africa    Value for money  Convenience

    We did not face any problem on this journey. It was a 2.5hrs journey and the seats were comfortable. The toilets were cleaned at every final station, so it was a relief to relief myself in a clean    Value for money  Convenience

    "very long trip"

      Ariel b.  07/09/2014
    when we were on the station, we did not find the train we marked in the schedule. it was another train that changed his time and we were 30 minutes staying in it. Beside this the train was stopping on every small station, so our trip was 2 h 10 mins. Before the trip we tried to ask some workers at the station about it, everybody sent us to the trenitalia information desk where were about 20 people waiting. So, we ask to understand better what kinds of trains we can use when you send us the tickets, thank you    Value for money  Convenience
