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.

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.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

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

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. A direct overnight train from Munich to Rome runs almost every night of the year. This train is called "Lupus", and it also picks up passengers in Innsbruck. While Rome is the final destination, it is also possible to alight in Florence, Arezzo and Orvieto. This journey from Munich to Rome takes just over 12 hours, crossing the Alps overnight and travelling in the early morning through Tuscany and Umbria to reach Rome just after nine in the morning.

    Bookings for the night train from Munich to Rome normally open three months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets. From 11 December 2016, this train will be run by Austrian Railways (ÖBB) under its new Nightjet brand.

    There are also plenty of daytime options. The preferred route by day is by taking a EuroCity train from Munich to either Verona or Bologna, changing at one of those stations onto an Italian high-speed train for the onward journey to Rome. The full journey by day from Munich to Rome, either via Verona or Bologna, takes 9 hours.

    Munich to Rome (night train)

    The Lupus City Night Line (CNL) train departs from Munich Hauptbahnhof and arrives in Rome at Roma Termini. The train carries sleeping cars, couchettes and a single carriage with seats (in compartments with six seats in each). If you can afford it, it's worth it to upgrade from seated accommodation to a couchette or sleeping berth. Our booking system will give you a price for each option.

    Chances are that you’ll sleep through much of the Alps, but do try and be awake for the last three hours from Florence to Rome. You’ll see morning scenes of quiet beauty as the train winds south through the hills from Tuscany to Umbria and Lazio.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
