Frecciarossa 1000 trains on the domestic routes within Italy convey 4 classes of accommodation, but the Standard Premier service is not available on this international route.
Also 'Allegro' has been introduced as the branding for the Standard and Business Class, SMTJ isn't certain as to the reason for this, other than to make a distinction with the tickets on the domestic routes.

The 15:53 departure from Milano Centrale offers onward travel to France from these arriving Frecce trains:
Between the outskirts of Milano and Torino, the train will travel at more than 280 km/h on the high speed railway, but the rest of the route is on a classic line.
The most scenic parts of the journey are between Susa and the Mont Cenis Tunnel which straddles the border and to the north of the tunnel, the best of the views are on the right, but much of the route is within a narrow valley.
