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.
