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.

  1. It is easy to take the train from Rome to Bari, a port town on the Adriatic. Comfortable Frecciargento trains cover the 500-kilometre route in about four hours. You can choose between three different services: morning, early afternoon and evening. In addition to the fast Frecciargento option, there is an occasional Intercity train. That IC service takes two hours longer than the Frecciargento service, but it often offers bargain-basement fares. There is also an overnight train from Rome to Bari on Friday nights; it offers a choice of sleeping car, couchette or seats.

    The Frecciargento trains run south from Rome on the high-speed line towards Naples, branching off that line near Caserta and cutting into the hill country that creates the spine of Italy. Beyond Benevento, there is a gorgeous stretch of mountainous terrain. At Foggia the train reverses direction, then heads south-east along the coast to Bari.

    Bookings for the journey from Rome to Bari normally open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.


    Rome Termini to Bari Centrale

    All trains to Bari leave from Roma Termini station. The Frecciargento trains make just four stops on the journey from Rome to Bari.

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.
