General Information about the journey from Florence to Rome

Separated by just 279 miles of scenic Tuscan countryside and connecting two of the greatest cultural centres of Europe, the route between these two cities can easily be travelled by bus, train or air. Train travel is usually preferred as the most efficient and frequent way to travel. Buses provide a more economical method without sacrificing too much time. Air travel is generally the slowest way to travel, owing to Rome's airport being located on the Mediterranean coast, some distance from the city.
