- "On the go with Frecciarossa!" Lynette t. 16/11/2015
Easy to manage, affordable train ticket pricing, decent leg space (for the price you pay) and the staff were helpful when you have questions. More importantly, it's widely reminded to safe guard your personal belongings at all time and if you are alert on that note, the train ride will be just fine :)
- "VERY BAD TIMING" Wee Hun l. 02/11/2015
We took a train from Venice to Milan for connection to Bern. The ticket indicated that the train will arrive at 1755 in Milan and my connection was 1825. Was very upset that the train arrived at 1830 and we missed the train. They connected us from Milan to Brig and another connection from Brig to Bern which delayed a total of over 2 hours. To make matters worse, we had to seats arranged for these 2 legs and was told that if the train was full, we have to stand. Very unpleasant journey and disappointed with such connection arrangements!!

TGV is fast and easy. They usually make lots of announcements in several languages (though sometimes hard to understand). Great views through the French and Italian countrysides!
- "Italy - Swiss Travel Pass Way" Caroline l. 16/09/2015

Ran on time and was very relaxing, be forewarned that if your traveling with larger luggage its a tight fit in storing it.

The overall train was comfortable but it would have been better if i could use WIFI on the train. Mobile Network is not available in the tunnels and you face this issue quite often. Rest it was OK.
