How do I buy a train ticket from Florence to Rome

by KaraP

Hi I am traveling from Florence to Rome next week and I am leaving for the trip on Tuesday. Can I get the ticket in Florence and if so how? I am looking to book a ticket for the fast train. Also I have heard I need to get the ticket validated, how do I do that? Many thanks.

Just turn up at the station when you are ready to travel. Trains from Florence to Rome are very regular (usuallly about two every hour. If memory serves me correctly, they are mostly (if not all) Euro Star. Seat reservations are compulsory on all Euro Star trains but you can actually make your reservation and buy your ticket a few minutes before the train departs, always assuming that there are seats available which is usually the case. If the worst comes to the worst, you simply wait 30 minutes or so and get the next one. Duration of the trip is a little over 1.5 hours. You will probably have to validate your ticket aat the platform gate, but someone will tell you that.

Buy your ticket and then follow the other people. There is a little machine and you stick your ticket into it, it stamps the date and time on the ticket and you then keep it in case the conductor does a ticket check. Just watch everyone else and do what they do. It's pretty self explanatory.

Enjoy your trip.

Anyway, a ticket with reservation included for a specific train doesn't need to be validated (that's for open tickets).

You can buy ticket an make reservations also from most of the travel agents in town, showing a "FS" or "trenitalia" logo.

Travel Tips for Rome

Crossing the streets

by monica71

Before our trip to Rome I did a lot of reading and I was a little bit worried about crossing the streets. Yes, the city is busy and the traffic is heavy at times (almost all the time), but there are lots of crosswalks in the city. The cars stop to let pedestrians cross the street, so you do not have to be nervous about it. Just use common sense and do not attempt to cross the street if there is no crosswalk.

I was expecting total chaos and craziness (due to all the stuff I was reading on this topic), but in fact I was very impressed with the civilized manner in which people behave in heavy traffic and crowded side walks.

Just South of the Pantheon

by TexasDave

Off the small street that goes South on the East side of the Pantheon (to your right when exiting) there is a small square called piazza della Minerva. It will be on your left when walking towards Corso Vittorio Emanuel II.
In the middle of the square stands this small obelisk perched on the back of a baby elephant (a baby obelisk deserves a baby elephant, I guess). It was designed by Bernini in 1667. It's a neat litle curiosity to look for when leaving the Pantheon area.

The most eccentric bar in Rome

by Wondagirl about Jonathan's Angels

What can i say! You either love this place...or hate it! I don't think that you should have any expectations before you visit the bar. It's an indescribable atmosphere, and you can stare at the interior forever. Just the famous toilet is woth to visit...

Because of it's celebrity, there's a lot of tourists here and the prices are too high....
The owner is kind off special, and his wife Angelica is so sweet....

It's worth a visit at least!

Only in Rome you say!

by Davelyn about NEIRNO'S EATERY

This local eatery has been here for at least 2 generations & is visited by the Roman locals as well as the many travellers that come here to Rome. This cellar restuarant is located by the Santa Anna Pensioni 4 blocks from Santa Maria Majorrie Church. It opens around 19:30. They have just about anything you would like in an Italian dish , but there is a special Spegetti that can be ordered in which they prepare in their own way. The noodles are cooked & then added to their own ingredience of block cheese (orange or white cheese). The addative of spieces is mixed into this stirred , which melts the cheese into the spagetti and walla, a superb dish fit for a king.

The Best Ice Cream In The World

by freespirit2610

Seriously, if your ever in Rome, your most probably going to be going to the Fontana Di Trevi, if so dont miss out on 'Il Gelato di San Crispino'
It is delicious, this ice cream parlour has amazing flavours and sorberts with no addictives, its all fresh and delicious, they are so passionate about their ice cream they done even put it in ice cream cones because they dont want to taint the flavour.
The ice cream is so good, we went back on another day just for some more.
The queue gets quite big and their opening times are a bit tricky but its well worth it.
