Trains from Naples to Rome are plentiful and run throughout the day, on a schedule that sees several departures per hour. The trip duration varies depending on the train operator, with high-speed trains taking just under or just over 1h. The slower and cheaper trains take from 2h to 3h. The reward at the end of your journey is the chance to explore one of Europe's most historic and iconic cities, and main tourist destinations.
Train schedules on this route are regular and full. Nearly 70 trains run per day on weekdays, and over 50 trains run on Saturdays and Sundays. The first trains start in the very early morning, with the last departures usually in the late evening. Timetables are regular and predictable, with two different operators offering a selection of trip durations throughout the entire day. The services and train times don't differ much between weekdays and weekends, with pretty much a full train schedule running every day, with a bit more weighting during busier times, and weekends slightly quieter, but not by much. This is a very well serviced route.
The train journey duration on the high-speed train services average out at 1h 15min. The standard speed trains are divided into two categories: those that take between 2h and 3h, and the more leisurely ones that can last 2h to 3h 30min. Peak times are in the morning and evening commuter hours, so to travel off-peak, book from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, or an evening train. Most are direct trips, with a small handful requiring a single change en route.
The best way to save money on a train ticket from Naples to Rome is to choose the slower trips. Travelling through the Italian countryside for 3h is actually a wonderful way to sight-see, so what you sacrifice in speed is more than made up for. Another way is to be flexible with your travel dates and travel times, so you can take advantage of special offers as they arise on any given day. It also allows you to avoid the commuter crowds. Look out for the few train trips each day that have a change over, as these are usually more economically priced, to make up for the additional effort, which in reality is not much at all. Discount cards are also available, and senior citizens benefit from cheaper prices too. Finally, keep an eye out for daily specials on our website and cheaper trains where you can save money by booking in advance.
