From Rimini to Rome

How to get from Rimini to Rome?

The distance from Rimini to Rome (Roma) is 338 kilometers, and getting there is faster and more comfortable by high-speed train. Alternative ways – by night bus and on your own by car, we will also consider.

By train

There is only one direct train from Rimini to Rome and it leaves at 06:36 from the central station (Rimini Centrale). Travel time 3 hours 44 minutes. When planning a trip and booking several months in advance, a ticket can be bought for 25 euros.

The train arrives in Rome at Termini Station (Roma Termini)

The train departs from Rome at 17:30 and arrives in Rimini at 21:27.

I advise you to look at the schedule and buy tickets on the official website www.omio.ru – it is simple, understandable, not buggy, plus it is available in Russian. Prices are exactly the same as on Trenitalia and you save your nerves.

Regional trains

The cheapest way to get to Rome from Rimini is by regional trains. The journey with a transfer at the Falconara Marittima station will take more than 5 hours and will cost 24.40 euros.

A faster option by high-speed trains Frecciabianca and Frecciarossa with a change in Bologna (Bologna) will cost 50.80 euros and take 3.5 hours.

One day tour

If you are coming to Rome for just one day, then you should plan the cultural program in advance. I recommend spending the day like this:

  • 10:30-12:30 go on your own in the churches of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri ( Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri ) and Santa Maria Maggiore (Basilica di S.Maria Maggiore) – they are located within walking distance from Termini, admission is free;
  • 13:30-16:30 take an individual tour for 150 euros to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill;
  • 16:45 get on the subway and go to the station

It is ideal to spend 4 to 7 days in the Eternal City for the first time. Here’s the perfect 3-day itinerary to explore the main attractions.

By bus

The direct bus from Rimini to Rome runs only at night and leaves at 22:40. Travel time 6 hours 20 minutes, at 5 am you will arrive at the Tiburtina bus station (Roma Tiburtina) – this option is worth considering if you tolerate buses well, are very limited in budget and want to save money on a hotel.

A ticket, if purchased in advance, costs 18 euros.

The bus departs from Rome at 00:55 at night and arrives in Rimini at 07:25 in the morning.

I would not consider options with transfers by bus – a very big risk.
