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. Travelling by train from Rome to Naples was transformed with the opening in 2005 of a high-speed line from Rome to Naples between the two cities. Trenitalia and NTV Italo compete head-to-head on this key route, both running non-stop services from Rome to Naples in just 70 minutes.

    The new line runs well inland from the old coastal route, for long stretches paralleling the autostrade. Apart from the pleasure of travelling twice as fast as the cars in the fast lane of the motorway, you’ll be rewarded with some great views of the hills of Lazio and Campania. There is also a slow travel alternative – Intercity and regional trains still trundle down the old route, taking 2 hours or more for the journey.

    Bookings for Trenitalia trains on the route from Rome to Naples normally open four months prior to travel. The Italo services are often available for sale even longer in advance. You'll want to book early for the cheapest tickets.


    Rome to Naples Centrale

    About two dozen high-speed trains leave Rome each day for the non-stop run to Naples. Six or seven of these trains (depending on the day of the week) are Italo services. These all depart from Tiburtina station in Rome. The majority of the services on the route are operated by Trenitalia using either Frecciarossa or Frecciargento trains. Both are equally comfortable.

    The Trenitalia trains normally serve both Roma Tiburtina and Roma Termini stations. About five of the Trenitalia trains serve only Roma Termini, and there are also a couple which serve only Tiburtina. All trains arrive at Naples Centrale, where you’ll find a good range of onward connections to destinations across southern Italy.

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.
