Overall appreciation

Excellent % Very good % Average % Poor % Terrible %

  • "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.

    Everything in 1st class carriage was clean, spacious and comfortable. Just be aware that you do need to load your own luggage on and off the train and there is limited space for large suitcases.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Italian trains"    
    Great experience traveling by train in Italy. Stations are easy to get to, trains are clean and efficient. You arrive at your destination relaxed and ready to explore a new city. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get around Italy. Only tip - travel like an Italian with small suitcases that can easily fit above or below seats and quick to pull onto trains. Enjoy your travels!    Value for money  Convenience
