How to go from Naples to Rome

Are you planning a trip and are you planning to move from Naples to Rome to visit both cities? Below you will find all the useful tips to reach the capital starting from the capital of Campania.

From Naples to Rome

Naples and Rome are two of the most beautiful and fascinating Italian cities. Both are united by a grandiose past and a present often chaotic and not always easy. Both are united by an extraordinary beauty, impressive monuments and beautiful places.

To visit both cities, we warn you, you will need at least a week: a few days are not enough to appreciate them and to visit at least the most important monuments and symbolic places. In both cities, moreover, you’ll absolutely have to find the time to taste the local cuisine (maybe taking part in a food tour!): both Naples and Rome boast a millenary gastronomic tradition!

A visit to Naples, then, is not complete without a tour of its museums, a walk along the Lungomare and a pizza dinner.

Among the experiences not to be missed in Rome, however, is a visit to the Colosseum, the Vatican and a dinner in Trastevere to enjoy the typical Roman cuisine.

The two cities are about 200 km from each other: a fairly long route, but easily covered in a short time. Below we explain how to get from Naples to Rome.

From Naples to Rome by train

Reaching Rome from Naples by train is very simple: you just have to leave from the Central Station of Piazza Garibaldi.

Generally, the train is the best way to travel between the two cities: the times are short and the prices, especially if you buy tickets in advance, are very convenient.

To reach Roma Termini Station from Napoli Centrale there are several solutions: prices and journey times will vary depending on the type of train you choose.

  • Regional train: it takes about 3 hours and the price is about 13 €.
  • Intercity train: it takes about 2 hours and prices are around 30 € (except for promotions).
  • Frecciarossa train: high speed trains take just over an hour and prices vary between 50 € and 100 € depending on the class you choose to travel in.

We would also like to tell you that the Italo company also connects Naples to Rome with high speed trains.


From Naples to Rome by plane

Another solution for getting from Naples to Rome is by plane.

Even if this solution may seem the fastest, you must remember that you must arrive at the airport at least a couple of hours in advance to check in.

Moreover, the Naples airport is about 15 minutes from the center of Naples, but it can take up to an hour to get there, depending on the traffic. To get from the center to the Capodichino airport, the most convenient solution is the Alibus service.

Remember also that once you arrive at Fiumicino airport, it will take you another half hour to get to the city center by taking the Leonardo Express train.

The flight from Naples to Rome, however, takes just under an hour and can cost around 100 Euros.

From Naples to Rome by bus

A third alternative is the bus.

Among the companies that run the route from Naples to Rome are Flixbus and MarinoBus: both offer particularly convenient rates.

The sore point of the bus is the travel time: this should be about 2 hours and a half, but can vary a lot depending on traffic.


From Naples to Rome by car

Finally, you could opt to travel by car: the route is simple and, once on the A1, you only need to continue to the Grande Raccordo Anulare where you will find the necessary directions to reach the center of Rome.

The car, however, is not the most suitable way to move between these two big cities: the traffic is really a lot in both centers and the many ZTL (Limited Traffic Zone) can make you risk a fine particularly salty.
