Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey, based on how far in advance you book.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

30 day advance and 7 day advance prices are found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from today. These prices fluctuate daily based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price on a busy Saturday in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey on a Tuesday in winter.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

  1. The trains from Milan to Rome are fast, frequent and reliable. The fastest trains between Italy’s two largest cities take just under 3 hours, using modern high-speed rail lines for the entire length of the 570-kilometre journey.

    At least three trains each hour speed south from Milan to Rome. At peak times, there may be as many as five trains each hour on this prime business route. Two companies compete on the stretch: NTV Italo and Trenitalia. Trenitalia have the edge when it comes to the number of trains and bookings open four months prior to travel. NTV Italo trains are less frequent, but have the advantage that tickets can often be booked as long as six months in advance. Book early for the cheapest tickets.

    The journey to Rome heads south-east across the North Italian Plain to Bologna, there turning south into the hills. The stretch from Bologna to Florence is almost entirely in tunnels, but beyond Florence there are fine views of the Arno and Tiber Valleys on the run south to the Italian capital.
