Cheap train tickets from Florence to Rome

Getting from Florence to Rome by train in a little over 1 hour

Getting to Firenze Santa Maria Novella station

As my hotel was only 10 minutes away from the station, I decided to have a nice morning walk to Firenze Santa Maria Novella. It was a quiet Sunday morning – shops were still closed – so I took advantage of the rare tranquillity and walked down the city’s cobblestone streets, allowing the beauty of the city to unfold before me.

Conveniently located in the heart of Florence, Firenze Santa Maria Novella station was very easy to reach. There were clear signs throughout the whole station, which helped me get to the platform without any problems.

Boarding my Italo train

Boarding the sleek and stylish Italo train was a breeze – I simply had to show my e-ticket to a member of staff and after following the signs to the Smart Class carriage where my seat was, I was on board in no time.

As I settled into my seat, I couldn't help but appreciate the clean and well-maintained interiors of Italo’s Smart Class. Despite being a Standard Class carriage, it still gave me an immediate sense of comfort and relaxation.

The train journey from Florence to Rome

I really enjoyed the train journey from Florence to Rome. What stood out during the trip was the exceptional service provided by Italo. The onboard amenities exceeded my expectations, with complimentary WiFi allowing me to stay connected throughout the whole journey, plug sockets at each seat for convenient charging, super clean toilets, spacious seating offering ample legroom, and large windows providing panoramic views of the Italian countryside.

Arriving at Roma Termini station

My Italo train arrived on time at Roma Termini. The station's central location made it easy to get to the heart of the Eternal City on foot. If you don’t feel like walking, you can also take the metro - there’s an underground station right under the train station. If you want to get to the Colosseum, you can take line B or B1 bound for Laurentina and get off after two stops. To get to St Peter’s Basilica, you just need to change at Colosseum and take line C to S. Pietro.

Overall, I really enjoyed my train journey from Florence to Rome with Italo. The convenience of city-centre stations, coupled with Italo's exceptional onboard services, made this trip an excellent travel choice.
