  • "Venice via Milan to Camogli."    
    This was a very easy way to travel from Venice. Our end destination was Camogli via Milan. To book our travel all the way, four hours, the first leg was business class as first class was already fully booked.. There was no real class difference as we were both in the same carriage, just cost more, but we had luggage, so we wanted to have room with that and our seat allocation. For this time of year probably could have gone second class but I liked the fact we had a seat and didn't have to worry. It was easy to book online, no worries once on the train with print out.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train from Florence to Rome"    
    Was a very easy way to travel. The train was on time, clean and easy to find our seats. Would have liked more room to store our luggage but other than that, the trip was comfortable and pleasant    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Good journey"    
    My recent train journey was hassle free. The train was only a few minutes late. Carriage easy to locate. Ample luggage storage. Carriage was spacious as not full. Complimentary drink and snack were good. Unfortunately unable to connect to wifi however this time I had a portable wifi I had hired so it did not bother me. We arrived in Turin before I knew it    Value for money  Convenience

  • "Firenze renaissance"    
    We were coming from the Tuscan countryside and the GPS didn't work. So we were lost in Florence. Very stressed! Finally finding Budget rent a car we dropped it off and missed our train by 4 minutes, and were told we had to buy another ticket. Three hours later we arrived in Milan at a cost of Euro 216. This was unfair and will recommend tourists don't buy off the internet. Any chance of a refund? Pleased to see guards this time as we were accosted two years ago. Trains are great, best way to travel, but service is unfriendly sometimes. One guy had a great sense of humour.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train from Venice to Bologna"    
    Train was clean, comfortable, fast and very pleasant. We had suitcases so it was a priority to get on early to put them in the luggage compartment and many others take up the space.    Value for money  Convenience

  • "Great way to travel "    
    Our trip from Venice to Verona was part of a month we spent in Italy in September, travelling around mostly by rail, and mostly on the Frecciarossa. We found the train service excellent - very inexpensive, very fast, very comfortable, and all our trains ran pretty much on time - within 10 minutes or less of scheduled departure. Our trips were very easy to book online and trains were easy to find and board, despite not speaking Italian. We definitely recommend travelling around Italy by train - love the Frecciarossa!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Frecciarossa to Roma"    
    There is no doubt that the Frecciarossa sets new standards for train travel. There was not a thing you could complain about except train access can still be difficult especially with heavy suitcases.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Naples to Rome"    
    The whole experience was painless and pleasant. Train was clean, comfortable, fast and on time - thanks!    Value for money  Convenience
