- "TGV Trip Milan-Paris" Paula p. 25/01/2014
Train left Milan on time, however, due to technical problems we had to change trains half way and therefore ended up arriving over 1 hour late into Paris. The first class seating was fairly disappointing, the carriage looked like it hadn't been cleaned for quite some time. Staff were very polite and helpful.
- "Shabby premium service" Russell b. 22/01/2014
We travelled First Class from Milan to Paris. The SNCF TGV train was very disappointing. The carriage was dirty and needed to be thoroughly cleaned. There was no Wi Fi service which I think is unacceptable in this day and age. Furthermore no food or drink was offered as part of the service - it had to be paid for on top of the ticket; this is very poor compared to similar services such as EuroStar. There was also very little food on offer to purchase for an 8-hour train ride. Staff demonstrated very little interest in providing customer service for Premium travellers.
- "Italian train-Gibbs Family" Robyn g. 15/01/2014
We were very pleased with the state of the train, clean comfortable seats and space for all our luggage. It was on time. We did the booking via the internet and managed to save a lot on travel agent fees. The e ticket was all that was necessary to produce to the conductor. Many thanks for a pleasant trip.
- "Good Service" William z. 11/01/2014
We enjoy very much, the train was on time and clean
- "cont’d" Brad w. 09/01/2014
we could only find seats together for part of the family so the children had to sit on our laps. this is a long trip.
- "Informative and easy to book" Wei Wen c. 06/01/2014

- "Paris to Milan" Hussain m. 31/12/2013

- "Satisfactory." Madeleine s. 28/12/2013
- "As Pleasant As We Hoped For" Peter d. 27/12/2013
Traveled in early December not much before the winter solstice. Wanted to travel during daylight as much as possible to enjoy the country we were passing through. So booked the 10:45 departure from Paris. All went well. Gare de Lyon is lovely. Instructions to train, specific car and seat worked fine. Departure was on time. Certainly a smooth ride. And quick too (to Lyon). Slower through the mountains after Lyon, but who cares? More time to enjoy the countryside. Sun set after we left Torino, Italy. Arrival in Milano was on time. We each had a large-ish roller suitcase, and there was plenty of room to store them at one end of the car. A thoroughly pleasant travel experience. Will do it again when we can... P.S. Was unable to print our tickets using Rail Europe's Print@Home feature. Sent an e-mail to their support site and received our tickets as .pdf files in response. A slight hiccup, but not a bit deal...
- "It was ok " Narjes s. 25/12/2013
The rate can be improve really, I got only suprised by tow things 1. WC 2.Chairs ... it was a pitty that you couldn't find a clean wc and about the chair it wasn't eanough comftable for a long distance (2nd class) but the rest was ok ... Thanks for your attention Regards
- "Comfortable ride" Shu Ming l. 25/12/2013
Comfortable ride and good convenient timing, however, I will appreciate if there can be devices to help passengers loading luggages onto the train rather than carry on.
- "Very Good" . 16/12/2013
Train was on time and comfortable
- "Very Convenient" Chun Ho w. 06/12/2013
it is very convenient for traveler to purchase the ticket online and print it at home.
- "Geneve CFF to Milano Centrale" . 03/12/2013
