Even if the Italian trains are a little behind the German ones in terms of equipment, hygiene and staff competence, I really enjoyed the journey from Milan to Florence. On the one hand, there is the magnificent view of the Italian countryside, and on the other, the bus arrived on time in Milan and also delivered us on time in Florence, which is not something that can be taken for granted. Even though the price was quite high, I really enjoyed the journey and can recommend it to others.
