Thinking of taking Italo from Venice to Rome in early March but don't know where its stations are in Rome. Anyone know how far by taxi to Campo di Fiori area?
Ruth, The Italo travels from Venezia Santa Lucia to Roma Tiburtina. You can easily get from Tiburtina to Roma Termini via the Metro (Line "B", direction Laurentina, 4th stop). It might be cheaper to use a Taxi from Termini. I've never taken a Taxi from Tiburtina to the Campo di Fiori, so not sure what the cost would be? Cheers!
Thanks, Ken. That helps!
I agree with Ken; from a quick look at RS's Rome guide, I don't see any Metro stops near Campo di Fiori. Taxi might be best from Termini. Unless things have slipped since October when I took Italo from Rome to Naples, you should love the train ride to Rome and Tiburtina is not the madhouse that Termini is. Best wishes
We've used ItaloTreno a couple of times now, including a Rome/Venice/Rome trip in December. It's fabulous! If you can get a discounted advanced fare and book 1st class, do it. We took a cab from Tiburtina to our home in Parioli and I it was less than €15. It should be absolutely no more than that to Campo dei Fiori. Laurel
Thanks, everybody! I'll book it tonight. Extra special thanks to Laurel. If I can miss the Termini madhouse for even a halfway decent taxi fare, even better. I just had no good idea of where I was landing!
@Joseph, "Tiburtina is not the madhouse that Termini is" Actually, I kind of enjoy all the activity at Termini but I agree that it's certainly a busy place. I sometimes buy a Coffee and sit on the top floor of Termini McDonald's and watch the "human performance" taking place below. Cheers!
I was so pleased to read your query. Traveling Florence -Venice - Rome and I was about to book italo tickets but was hesitant having never seen any reports......now i can book with confidence!
Raj, The trains are brand new, clean, very fast, and advanced in design. Staff is utterly professional and the trains I took arrived right on time. The regular train ride from Rome to Naples is 3 hours; Italo takes one hour (the same amount of time that the jam-packed sardine can Circumvesuviana takes from Naples to Sorrento. (I believe that Trenitalia also offers high-speed travel; my brief experience with Trenitalia from Milan to Florence was very good.)
Here's a helpful website: http://www.worldtaximeter.com/rome It shows that cab fare from Tiburtina to Campo de' Fiori should be about 16 euros. (You have to enter "campo de fiori" for the destination.) And, yes, Trenitalia certainly does offer high speed trains. Their Frecciarossa goes from Rome Termini to Napoli Centrale in 1hr 10min. If you're lucky, you can buy that ticket for 9 euros on the Super Economy fare (made available four months before the travel date). (The 3 hours Joseph mentions are on the Regionale (or "milk run") train, that makes all or nearly all the stops along the way.)
