- "Only One a Day" Gregory m. 02/11/2016
This service, the Flecciargento from Rome airport to Padua, Florence, Bologna and Venice only runs once a day in each direction, as far as I know. It saves a lot of mucking about with changing trains Value for money Convenience

- "Easy travel" James m. 18/10/2016
Our family of 5 travelled from Roma to Firenze. We had booked seats and it was convenient to travel without needing to print tickets. Train was punctual, clean and comfortable. Would use this service again. Value for money Convenience
- "Terrible Journey" . 17/10/2016
This trip was terrible, probably the worst we've experienced including Indian 4th Class. The train arrived at Firenze 30 minutes late. At Rome Termini there was a delay of around 25 minutes, then a message (in Italian only) that the last leg to Fiumicino was 'cancelled'. No help or advice was given to the passengers going to the airport. Many of us were able to cram on to a later train to the airport, and the situation on this overcrowded train was chaotic with people and luggage jammed into every centimetre of space. This train also stalled for around half and hour, and many passengers missed their flights. A terrible experience!
- "Venice - Rome" Peter b. 15/10/2016
A very comfortable, convenient trip. Train was on time. However waiting for the train meant a lot of standing around….there should be a designated seating/waiting area for train travellers. Value for money Convenience
- "Euro rail" Debra b. 09/10/2016
pleasantly surprised with the train travel. Very comfortable and clean train. Value for money Convenience
- "Efficient Travel" Vanessa s. 08/10/2016
Very good way to travel in Italy. Reliable and on time. Enjoyed complimentary snack. Dreaded to use the toilet, needs to be cleaned more regularly. Would have liked the option to choose seats. Found booking online a little frustrating, couldn't choose seats to be with friends. Value for money Convenience
- "Ease and speed" Jan b. 08/10/2016
Having handed back the car it was a relaxing way to travel to Roma. Whilst the train was full in our coach, we managed to find space for our luggage. The train departed and arrived on time and was most efficient. I would recommend this mode of transport. Value for money Convenience
- "EAVE THE LUGAGE AT HOME" Jeffery r. 05/10/2016
THE TRAIN IS FINE BUT LACKS SPACE FOR LUGAGE. Value for money Convenience
- "Good Decision " . 05/10/2016
- "Comfortable and affordable" Nicole a. 04/10/2016
The train ride was comfortable and was reasonably priced. We were in first class so also had some snacks provided. There was plenty of room and the train was on time. It was a fun experience. Value for money Convenience
- "A great way to travel" Peter l. 27/09/2016
The train service is very good. However the train had about 12 carriages and there was no early signage on the platform to indicate where each carriage would stop. We and many other people had to walk and run with luggage to get to the correct carriage. This is not good enough. Value for money Convenience
