  • "Train Failure Cause Delay"    
    We were delayed with more than 1 hour due to train failure and this caused some inconvenience regarding the shuttle we had organised to take us to Amalfi,    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train to Naples"    
    Our first train ride on Italo. It was easy to book online, and we were able to take advantage of a good offer for advance purchase. The train was on time and very comfortable - although the promised wifi did not seem to work. Don't expect too much from the 'complementary welcome drink and snack' - it is a glass of water or juice with a biscuit or a packet of nuts.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Euro Tour 2016"    
    Travelling by train is a lot more convenient and less hassle and time saving. Railway system in Europe is very systematic.    Value for money  Convenience

  • "Florence to Rome"    
    The seats are comfortable and it was absolutely value for money. It's not my first time to travel by train to Rome. But the service was outstanding this time. Will choose RailEurope again for sure.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Convenient and comfortable!"    
    Good comfortable journey. Enjoyed our trip.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Naples to Florence"    
    We booked as a couple in business class but, unfortunately were allocated seats in a four which meant we could not stretch out our legs. However, the seats were comfortable enough. Although we were in business class we were only offered one small plastic cup of soft drink and a tiny snack. British business class service beats Italo hands down. However, in Italy the train beats driving anytime! The journey was quick. Watch out for porters grabbing your bags and then demanding money for helping you.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Online booking"    
    Would like to give a big thumb up for your online booking system Is a good bridge to connect the Asia Market    Value for money  Convenience
