  • "relaxed travel"    
    We railed from Rome to Florence and it was comfortable, relaxing and an easy way to get to our destination while watching the scenery.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Very comfortable travel"    
    This is a great train. We had spacious and comfortable seats opposite each other and with a table in between. Got close to 300 kph at times so Rome to Milan is very quick and from city centre to city centre. No travel to and from airports on the outskirts and no trouble taking two large cases. Highly recommended although refreshment range could be better. Not a lot to improve.    Value for money  Convenience
