How to get from Milan to Rome?
The distance from Milan to Rome is about 600 km, and the journey will take you from 3 to 10 hours. The most comfortable and fastest way to get from Milan to Rome is the Italotreno high-speed train. In this article, we will look at all the options for any wallet.
There are 2 high-speed train companies in Italy: ItaloTreno.it (detailed instructions here) and Trenitalia.com (instructions here). Each has direct trains that will take you non-stop from Milan to Rome in just 3 hours, it remains to figure out the prices.
Italotreno has the cheapest option for 19.90 euros in the Smart salon. You need to book such a ticket at least 1-2 months in advance, it is non-refundable. The usual price is around 33-47 euros.
At Trenitalia, for 19.90 euros, you can find a maximum regional train that takes more than 6 hours and arrives at Tiburtina station, not Roma Termini. The usual price for early booking is around 40-50 euros.
Thinking about buying a few weeks in advance, you will most likely already be faced with higher prices. As you can see, the cost of a ticket for a regional train (the one that takes 6.5 hours!) Starts from 49.90 euros, and a comfortable and fast option without transfers costs 79.90 euros.
If you did not have time to buy profitable train tickets and are on a budget, then buses are your option. Due to my height of 190 cm, I am skeptical about any trips not by buses, not to mention the journey from Milan to Rome which takes about 8-9 hours. The only option that I would agree to is traveling by Flixbus buses, which, in addition to the price, are also very comfortable, there are sockets, tea / coffee service and even TVs in the headrests.
Spending a whole day in Italy, even in a comfortable air-conditioned bus, is a very controversial idea, but if you fall asleep easily on buses or are fun-loving, crazy students, then choose a night move.
Traveling by plane from Milan to Rome will take you about 4-6 hours, taking into account the road to one of the airports in Milan (Bergamo, Malpensa, Linate), the time for checking in, checking in luggage and waiting for the flight, as well as the way from Rome’s Fiumicino airport. In terms of cost and time, this is the most expensive option.
Traveling from Milan to Rome by car is logical to combine with visiting large and small authentic towns along the way, that is, I would stretch this trip for at least 4-5 days.
