    Think twice | Tania n. | 2016/07/11
    "What can we say when the coach stewardess does not speak either English or Italian (and the train traverses Italy), the coach does not have any drinking water dispenser, and there was no packaged drinking water on board available for sale! The aircon did not work until 30 min.s into the journey, and it was circa 35 degrees C. The lighting did not work properly - one dim ceiling light only, and no reading lamps. And the coach stewardess was in the adjoining cabin and smoked in the cabin - against the carriers own regulations - so that her 2nd hand smoke drifted straight out her window and into ours, and permeated the A/C once it began working.

    First time travel | Robert c. | 2016/07/03
    "The only problem with this service is that there is NO baggage storage area for large suitcases on this train. The overhead racks can only take small suitcases and back packs meaning you have to keep the suitcases on the floor of the compartment. In a 6 berth cabin once there are 2-3 suitcases there is no room left at all. We were lucky that the train was not full. If full it would have been mpossible with luggage. "

    Bus change | Glynn r. | 2016/06/18
    "Sadly the bus was used and not the train on this part of our trip but it was waiting for us at Villach so there were no hassles even though there was only 10 minutes between arrival of the train and departure of the bus. Obviously this part of the journey was much slower with traffic hassles and so on. "

    Best way to travel | David h. | 2016/06/06
    "Train travel was a brilliant way for my husband and I to get to Italy from Vienna. Payed extra to upgrade to first class which was worthwhile. The trip was relaxing, avoided the chaos of airports and allowed us to enjoy the scenic countryside. Would highly recommend. "

    This is first class  | Deborah m. | 2016/05/26
    "We were warned that the first class was very mediocre . As our train was arriving around 2.30 am I did set my alarm just in case we doozed off . Thank fully I did as no surprise that no one came and pre warned us that we were reaching our destination and no loud speaker over the intercom that we had reached the statistics n . So hint !! Make sure you are ready to alight with luggage intact quickly Using rail Europe is easy but not the cheapest site for train fares "
