    "Everything was great but I missed the wifi connection for such a long trip. Snacks was not very good and highly priced. I think 3.5 for a tea cup not a convenience price. Otherwise everything was good. "

    Scenic journey | Ashutosh b. | 2014/08/14
    "We reached bit early for our train, but once we got settled in the train, it was amazing. It was a day train and the train goes through great mountains and valleys offering delightful views. We got a business class seat and it was absolutely worth it. Will recommend this over airplane journey any given time. The pantry car is not that great, the options available are rather limited and the quality of food is just average. "

    Great Trip | Luis b. | 2014/07/29
    "The train is excellent and very comfortable. The only suggestion is that the information at the Fiorenze train station is not very good and is hard to purchase tickets with regular credit cards. "

    "It was pretty much an enjoyable one and we did have quite a wonderful time - It was quite scenic and the kids enjoyed the beauty of the terrain as well. Even though we traveled first class, the seating was not as comfortable as we expected, this was the only hitch especially considering the long journey. With that exception it was truly a memorable trip. "

    My first long distance TGV exp | Subir s. | 2014/07/10
    "I have heard a lot about TGV trains in Europe and availed such services for a shorter stretch from CDG to Nantes in 2012. So I had an expectation of reaching my destination on time as usual case. Unfortunately the train I took on 30th Jun from Paris GDL to Milan Gariboldi was late for 90 minutes to reach destination and it was a big surprise for me. "
