What does "Premium" mean?

Premium is the third level of service on Trenitalia's Frecciarossa trains, after Executive and Business. The primary color is red, and there is typically one Premium car per train.

Seats are set up in rows of four across, with two on either side of the center aisle. Each seat has a power outlet. Luggage storage is available in overhead racks and at one end of each car.

Premium passengers receive a "welcome drink" upon boarding, except for Saturday trips. This includes water, a soft drink, or coffee plus a snack and a choice of newspaper.
