    The Frecciarossa does Naples to Rome in around an hour - very smooth and comfortable. My first experience of the TGV was in the 80's Paris-Lyon. didn't know how fast it was till I got out and looked at the time.

    Ridden the TGV London to Paris, everything seems pretty fast until you travel under an overpass (in your car it's a calm slow event in the TGV it is a whoosh...what was that?) or pass a train going the other direction, at those points the speed is right in your face.

    The Shanghai MagLev was fast enough! The other Chinese trains we were on only did 250-270km...amazing stations as well, all good.
