The four lounge carriages of the Clasico are the most unique and beautiful places on the train. They are veritable rail treasures that are much admired owing to their exquisite design, their finish and the interior decorations. The “pub carriage” has a bar and dance floor and is decorated and lit like asmall nightclub, where lively entertainment is provided every night until the early hours of the morning. Another lounge carriage also has a bar where you can sit back and have a quiet drink. The other two lounges are for other types of entertainment, such as reading, enjoying a board game with your fellow passengers, talking or watching the passing scenery through the large picture windows.
Suites on board the train are specially designed for rest and privacy. You can sleep in comfort, as the train will be parked at a station each night.
