Travelling from Munich to Rome by train

Europe. It’s a magical place, so it’s only right that you travel by equally as magically means – train! The route from Munich to Rome will take you to some of the best cities on the continent and all in fantastic comfort. Travel from the home of world-class beer to the home of Roman history in 9 hours. That’s city centre to city centre by great, green and grand style (well, you can’t get much grander than your own private cabin aboard the Nightjet, can you? We’ll accept a plush seat on a ÖBB train just as happily though!). So, sit back, relax and watch the beauty of two countries pass outside your window.

Once in Rome, swap pints for pizza (Pizza Bianca is unlike any you’ll have tried before) in the Italian capital. We don’t want to encourage anyone to be a ‘typical’ tourist but considering you’ll have arrived by train, you’ve already elevated yourself. So go ahead and follow the well-worn path to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Vatican, although a stop to the ‘keyhole to the cupola’ is a lesser known spot your Instagram will thank you for. Check out our journey information below to get your adventure underway!
