Overall appreciation

Excellent % Very good % Average % Poor % Terrible %

  • "Easy travel"    
    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"    
    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"    
    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"    
    pleasantly surprised with the train travel. Very comfortable and clean train.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Efficient Travel"    
    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"    
    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
    THE TRAIN IS FINE BUT LACKS SPACE FOR LUGAGE.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Good Decision "    
  • "Comfortable and affordable"    
    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"    
    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
  • "Frecciargento"    
    Due to a death in my family I was unable to make my journey. I attempted to cancel the booking using my mobile phone internet but was unable to access the website properly to do so. I cannot comment on the journey but was not happy with the access to communication with the company.  
  • "Easy Travel"    
    Our train departed exactly on time, and we enjoyed a comfortable, relaxing journey.  
  • "Rome - Venice by Frecciargento"

  • "Train Trip Firenze to Padova"    
    Excellent way to travel and see the Italian landscape. Loved the comfort and the service of drinks and snack provided. Train was on time and arrived on time. Recommend to anyone who is thinking of travelling by train.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great Service"    
    Train on time, carriage was cool and quiet!    Value for money  Convenience
