From Pisa to Rome

How to get from Pisa to Rome?

The distance from Rome to Pisa is 360 kilometers. The fastest way to get there is by public transport – by train, cheaper – by bus, but you can make the trip more interesting, for example, by renting a car right at the airport and making a route through Florence, the region of Tuscany and Umbria – drive through small fabulous towns. In the article we will consider in detail all the options, let’s go!

By train

You can get from Pisa to Rome directly on the regional or high-speed train Trenitalia (Trenitalia). Travel time will be from 3 to 4 hours. Ticket price from 17 to 34 euros. Direct trains depart from Pisa Centrale and arrive in Rome at Roma Termini Station. There are practically no discounts on regional trains, so, paradoxically, the cheapest way to get to Rome is to buy a high-speed train ticket in advance, I recommend you this way.

It would also be interesting to make a change in Florence and spend at least 5 hours there, for example, order a city tour or visit the Uffizi Gallery with a guide.

From Florence to Rome several times an hour, high-speed trains Italoreno and Trenitalia, as well as buses leave.

By bus

Comfortable FlixBus buses run from Pisa to Rome 5 times a day. The cheapest ticket can be bought in advance for the day bus for only 9 euros. Travel time is about 6 hours. If you go by bus and try to save money, I would advise you to consider the night bus option, which leaves at 01:30 and arrives in Rome at 07:25 in the morning – so save on the hotel.

It is also a good option to leave Pisa at 13:35 and arrive in Rome around 19:00.

The bus parking in Pisa is called Pietrasantina (Parcheggio Via Pietrasantina), located 1 kilometer from the Pisa arable land (Torre di Pisa) and Miracoli Square (Piazza dei Miracoli). You can walk in 15 minutes or drive one stop on the city buses N80 or 875.

In Rome, buses arrive at Tiburtina Station (Roma Tiburtina).

By car

From Pisa to Rome by car, you can make many interesting routes. The road without stops will take about 4 hours, but I would recommend planning a visit to small towns. Traveling by car through Tuscany and Umbria is the most fabulous thing that happened to me in my life. You can stop for a photo every 10 minutes, especially if you choose not high-speed routes, but regional ones.

You can rent a car for 30-50 euros per day right at Pisa airport upon arrival.

For example, from Pisa you can make the Lucca-Florence route, then go to San Gimignano, stop for an hour in Orvieto and, of course, see the fabulous Bagnoregio (Civita di Bagnoregio). The trip can be stretched for 1-2 days.
