      Anne c.  10/01/2015
    Convenient service for a long distance journey. Overall comfortable ride.One cabin was devoted to the food and beverage area which is very nice. feels like you are sitting in a small café. Baggage space were somehow limited for large roller suitcases. The train company should design the trains with more baggage storage area.    Value for money  Convenience

  • "Milan to Florence"

      Thuang Boon g.  24/12/2014
    Tickets were booked abt 2mths early at a good price. No schedule change allowed is the only restriction. Arrived at the train station abt 2.5hrs early so I have to wait for my train although there were 2 trains departed to Florence before mine. The cabin was comfortable and overall very happy taking train instead of driving. Perhaps more english newspaper could be available on board.    Value for money  Convenience

    Be extra careful at the terminal. Many people will approach you to help but they expect TIPS.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "No seats"

      Robyn k.  18/12/2014
    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.    Value for money  Convenience
