What is the best first class high speed rail service between Milan and Paris?

If you watch our YouTube channel, you’re probably used to seeing us jump on airplanes and sometimes have fun on the tracks. However, we’ve never pitted the two train services against each other – and the luxury offerings at that.

However, this week at TPG, we dived into unforgettable experiences luxury train supply worldwide.

For example, on the business route between the two financial capitals Milan and Paris, there is some healthy competition. From France, the TGV inOui line operated by SNCF runs three times a day between these two cities. Italian operator Trenitalia, the newer train on the block, runs two Frecciarossa lines per day.

Pre-booked tickets on both services start at the very reasonable 29 euros (about $28) one way. First class (branded as “1”) on the French route and business class on the Italian route costs 46 euros and 36 euros ($45 and $35) respectively. If you want the best seats on this route, choose the Frecciarossa Executive class, which will cost you at least 165 euros (about $162).

We wanted to compare the best class available on both trains, so I took the Executive car on the Italian train, while Liam tested the first class on the French train. We took the earliest train that left Milan on the same day, arriving at Paris’ Gare de Lyon station about seven hours later. Watch the video to see how Italian and French operators compare.
