Reviews & ratings Lucerne - Milan
We (myself and wife) traveled from Luzern to Rome and the trip was in two legs. First one was from Luzern to Milan and then from Milan to Rome. We chose the train as we were interested in the landscape of Switzerland and Italy on the way. It was a comfortable trip, nice and clean coaches, good seats and comfortable cabins with very less noise. Also the view was great - through the hillsides and valleys of Switzerland and the farms and houses of Italy. Overall - very good experience.
Generally very good, efficient, on time. However, quality of meals was very poor. We thought meals were included in First Class, but this was not the case.
Though quiet and relatively comfortable, the train ride was exhausting as it seemed to go on and on and on bend after bend at a glaciers speed. Swiss officials came on board just as we entered Switzerland and though friendly, they certainly didn't treat our passports well (bending, twisting and flicking our biometric cards, passing them around repeatedly). It's definitely convenient as it goes from Milan all the way to Lucerne station.
We have just finished a ten week holiday travelling through eight countries using rail Europe which included using Italian international trains .I have nothing but praise for all the European trains we used . They are a very cost effective way to travel between and within countries and next time we are in Europe we will definitely utilise this excellent and efficient mode of transport.
Very comfortable journey and a great way to see the countryside. Only problem was with luggage. This trip was part of a five week journey and we had three large suitcases which I had to lug up stairs and strap in for security as they were a distance from our seat.. Otherwise a great trip.
