Nobody Does it Better Than Trenitalia (Frecciarossa Review)

Jump to last reply

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER THAN TRENITALIA

(according to this Financial Times Columnist):

"Keep heading south until you hit Milan and then jump on Trenitalia’s Frecciarossa high-speed rolling stock. Much is made of Germany and France’s high-speed rail networks but after a recent trip from Milan down to Naples and back again I can confidently say that the Italians are doing it the best.

Not only is there proper competition in the form of the new Italo train service (sadly, my timings didn’t enable me to sample it but the cars do look very handsome), which has forced the state operator to up its game, there’s even a shiny new station in Naples. Best is a dining car that serves fresh orange juice and good coffee, and, if you decide to buy first-class seats, there’s even prosecco delivered chair-side. Once you hit Naples you’re spoiled for choice hotel-wise but you’d find me at the San Pietro for sure."
