    ... was something wrong with the air conditioning - it was more like a sauna! 3 1/2 hours later we arrived once again in Milan, found the platform and then had to walk for ages to find the correct carriage. When we got to our seats - someone was already sitting in my seat!!! This got sorted quite quickly - the young guy had a seat in the next section. This was the high speed train.

The panini's were only 2.50 each and were made fresh with tuscan salami and other fine meats.

The pizza really was amazing, two girls at our table got theirs ...
