Florence to Naples - NTV's Italo versus Trenitalia's Frecciarossa: Which to take?

Jump to last reply

While researching the Florence to Naples part of our trip in June of 2014, thanks to kybourbon I just discovered that Italo offers a high speed train for that route. I probably should have heard about it sooner because I think the company has been in existence since about April of 2012 - but I just hadn’t heard of it until now. The man in seat 61 offers his opinion at the web link below.

I was wondering if anyone has experience with Italo and would recommend it or not? I checked a few random dates a few weeks out and Italo seems a bit more expensive than Frecciarossa but is it worth it for the newer trains and separate lounge area? We have always been very satisfied with our experiences using Trenitalia but thought I would check out what you think of NTV.
