    We were unexpectedly pleased with our train trip from Milan to Paris It was NOT easy finding the platform. and had to ask other travellers where to find the train, however this was the only problem. The seats are comfortable, coffee tea and food at your service, place to put your luggage. Power points to charge computer etc Great scenery, we are glad to have used the train rather than to fly

    My partner and I didn't travel on the booking, we had a family crisis in Australia and I tried to cancel the booking but didn't receive any replies to my emails,very disappointing as we would like to book another time  
  • "Good Value"    
    We went first class and the journey was comfortable. A drinks trolley appeared at intervals and you could order a meal. We sandwiches from the dining car. They were OK, but not as fresh as they could have been. Our only criticism of the train was that the toilets became very dirty during the trip.  
  • "Milan to Paris"    
    Easy trip - beautiful scenery. Coach staff friendly. Train clean. Announcements were all in English as well as Italian and French. Would definitely do it again!
