Frecciarossa Executive Class carriages consist of 8 or 10 74 cm-wide leather armchairs which are always facing the direction of travel. With only two seats per row (separated far apart), reclining backrests and adjustable footrests, you'll feel like you're travelling in your own little world of comfort!
Unlike the Business Class, the Executive Class doesn't have a quiet carriage, but it does contain a meeting room for any business needs – there are five seats, power sockets and a 32-inch TV screen that can be connected to your laptop if you want to go through a presentation or work on the go.
Free WiFi is also available on board – you just need to connect your electronic devices to the FRECCE Entertainment Portal and you'll be able to watch TV series, movies, listen to music and check travel information.
You can find the Executive Class in carriage 1 on both Frecciarossa 1000 and ETR 500 trains.
