Florence to Rome by train

Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

Frecciarossa or Frecciargento or Italo

Speed by train straight from Florence to Rome. Both NTV Italo and Trenitalia services operate on this route, between them offering three fast trains every hour. The high-speed rail route between the two cities initially runs south up the Arno Valley before cutting through the hills to reach the valley of the River Tiber which the train follows for the rest of the run down to Rome.

Florence to Rome

Most high-speed trains to Rome depart from Florence Santa Maria Novella (SMN) station. Just half a dozen trains each day depart instead from an alternative station called Campo di Marte. The Trenitalia trains (either Frecciarossa or Frecciargento) usually run to Roma Termini with a stop at Tiburtina along the way. Italo services on this route follow the same pattern. Two Rome-bound Trenitalia trains each day continue beyond Terimini station and terminate at Rome Fiumicino Airport.

All but a handful of the fast trains from Florence SMN run non-stop to Rome Tiburtina.
