    "I would travel with Italo again. Train depart and reached destination on time. Seats are comfortable, announcement was clear and train was very clean. The only acception is that compartment to put heavy and big lagguage was not sufficient. Could provide more space for heavy and big lagguage near to the door. Other than that, everything else is good. "

    "Our train trip to Venice was efficient and cost effective. It was easy to purchase our tickets on Rail Europe, (although we did not get confirmation until almost 24 hours after the purchase was made.) Italo is a wonderful rail line. Very clean and comfortable. It is our first choice when traveling in Italy. "
