On top of that, each seat has a folding table, and every row is separated by a smoked glass partition to guarantee maximum privacy.

If you’re travelling in the morning, staff will welcome you with a selection of free Italian newspapers (this service is also active on weekends).

Premium Class can be found in the following carriages:

  • Frecciarossa 1000: carriage 4
