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. The direct train from Rome to Florence takes 90 minutes. Both NTV Italo and Trenitalia operate on this route, between them offering three fast trains every hour. The high-speed route between the two cities initially travels north up the valley of the River Tiber before cutting through the hills to reach the Arno Valley, which it follows down to Florence.

    Trenitalia bookings for this journey generally open four months prior to travel. If you are looking for cheap tickets, buy as soon as bookings open. Bookings for NTV Italo services may open earlier.


    Rome to Florence

    For the journey from Rome to Florence, Trenitalia trains (either Frecciarossa or Frecciargento) usually depart from Roma Termini station, with a stop at Roma Tiburtina along the way. Italo services on this route follow the same pattern. Two Florence-bound Trenitalia trains each day start at Fiumicino Airport. Most of these high-speed trains from Rome arrive at Florence Santa Maria Novella (SMN) station. Just half a dozen trains each day stop instead at an alternative station in Florence called Campo di Marte.

    All but a handful of the fast trains from Rome Tiburtina to Florence SMN run non-stop between the two cities.

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.
