Cons

In my opinion, the positive aspects include the hygiene, the punctuality, the helpfulness of the staff and not forgetting the excellent wifi. Unfortunately, the fact that there was not much space on the train due to the large number of passengers was not quite as pleasant for me. Otherwise, I can classify the price as customer-friendly. Overall, I give it 4 stars. I recommend the journey.

Cons
IconAge of the train
Personally, I'm a big fan of travelling by train in Italy, as the trains have mostly been on time so far, as they were this time too, and you can simply rely on the information. The trains are equipped with the necessary amenities, but are a bit older and the seats are therefore a bit hard. Apart from that, you definitely can't complain, because the prices are also great! In my experience, I can only recommend the journey!

There were power sockets and wifi on the train, and you could use the wifi throughout. The seats were comfortable and there were plenty of storage options on the train. Service was very diligent and helpful. The toilets were clean and there was no rubbish lying around. The train was punctual and I arrived on time and the price performance is also top!

The train had no wifi, but there were power sockets. The seats were comfortable and you could stretch your legs. The hygiene was not so good because the toilets were completely dirty. The staff were also unfriendly and you couldn't buy food there. The price of the ticket is justified.
