Taking the train from Verona to Rome is the best way to travel between the two cities. Trenitalia runs seven high-speed Frecciargento trains each day from Verona to the Italian capital, all taking less than three hours for the 470-km journey. Private operator NTV Italo also runs four trains per day on this route.
This is a route that caters mainly to the business market, so more trains run at the start and end of each day with fewer direct trains in the middle of the day. If you want to travel from Verona to Rome at a time when there is no direct train, that’s easily done with just one change of train at Bologna Centrale. Connections via Bologna are generally hourly, but the change of train can add an hour or more to the overall travel time.
Bookings for the journey from Verona to Rome normally open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.
Verona to Rome
Fast Frecciargento or Italo trains from Verona to Rome all depart from Verona Porta Nuova station, making two stops along the way. These are at Bologna and Florence. Arrival in Rome is at Roma Termini station. Italo trains also serve Tiburtina station in Rome.
The journey splits neatly into three parts. Running south from Verona, the line crosses the North Italian Plain, bridging the River Po at Ostiglia. The stretch from Bologna to Florence is almost entirely in tunnels. Between Florence and Rome, you’ll get excellent views of the Tiber Valley as the train weaves south towards Lazio and the Italian capital.
