Train from Rome to Florence

The precise route depends on where you’re leaving from in Rome. 

From Rome Airport (Fiumicino)

The Rome airport (FCO) is just outside of the city. If you’re landing in Rome and going directly to Florence, you’ll likely need to make one change at Roma Termini, the main train station in Rome. There is one train offering that goes directly from FCO to Florence, but it was just introduced in 2023 and only runs once per day (at about 1:43 pm). If that time works out for you, great – otherwise, plan on having to change trains at either Roma Termini or Roma Tiburtina. Click the blue button below for tickets for this route.
