Train, flight or bus between Rome and Budapest?

by CaGal

Hi,

We will be travelling between Rome and Budapest end of July (2 adults and 2 kids - 12 and 10). What is the best bet...train, flight or bus? Was looking into eurorail, alitalia and malev...any other suggestions?

Also, we will be spending about a week in Rome...any suggestions about any day trips from Rome? Thanks for your reply.

Hy,
I have made some simulations for the end of July and the best and cheaper option is Wizzair: 2 adults and 2 boys under 14 from 199.60€ Rome Fiumicino-Budapest Ferihegy round trip
http://wizzair.com/Default.asp?slid=clear&language=EN
Malev from 765€, Germanwing from 900€, Alitalia I am ashamed to write it...
by bus: with Eurolines is a long trip from 600€ 4 people roundtrip
http://www.eurolines.it/en_site/default.htm
by train: Trenitalia from 704€ 2 adult+2 boys under 15 roundtrip http://trenitalia.com/homepage_en.html
Hope this helps
Ciao, Marco

VT does not allow advertising so it is best not to put your own website on your posts, as they will be deleted.

Flying is fastest, but will probably not be cheap as you have left it rather late to get the best fares on budget airlines. You must also add in time and costs for getting to/from the airport (there are two in Rome, ciampino and Fiumicino).

www.whichbudget.com lists all European budget airlines and their routes. www.skyscanner.net will give you cheapest fares for your dates. Remember strict hold baggage allowance (20kg for most, 15kg for Ryanair) and strict check-in times. A couple of minutes late and you will miss your flight with no refund.

http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

will give you times and details for almost all European trains. You may be able to find Rome>Budapest fares in English on the Italian railway website:

http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html

You can certainly find most fares there.

For day trips from Rome I suggest Tivoli, to see the lovely Vill d'Este and Roman Villa Adriana. Metro to Ponte Mammolo and then Cotral bus from the bus station next to the Metro exit to Tivoli (takes about 30-40 minutes).

http://www.villadestetivoli.info/storiae.htm

http://www.villa-adriana.net/

You shoudl also visit Ostia Antica, the ancient port of Rome.....a sort of mini-Pompeii. Metro to Pyramide, then overground commuter train to Ostia Scavi station (about 30 minutes). The site is 5 minutes walk from the station.

http://www.ostia-antica.org/

If you wanted, you could carry on (using the train) to Rome's 'seaside' at Ostia Lido.

A daytrip to Orvieto, Florence or Pisa is also feasible. Look at journey times and fares using the Italian railway website link I gave above.

Train is the next best alternative. Trains are safe and comfortable, and will almost certainly be cheaper than flying

'Train is the next best alternative. Trains are safe and comfortable, and will almost certainly be cheaper than flying'

is misplaced. It should have appeared underneath the information I gave about budget airlines.

Travel Tips for Rome

Internet & Post Cards

by jessbee74

Of course you gotta stay in touch. There was an internet near my hotel but it wasnt open late enough. The Easy Internet Cafe was awesome. They were also able to burn my digital pictures onto a CD.

Also, buy and send your post card from St. Peter's Square, it's easy and convenient.

Packing List

by BellaMora

I just dont care for the texture of the italian wash cloths. The wash clothes are like hard towels and they are really big. I would bring my own face towel if anything. (American cotton textured face towels) DEFINITELY bring walking shoes!!! Its okay to be cute but you really need to be comfortable with all the walking you do. Especially to a place like the Colosseum!

Italian Baby Music and Other CD's

by nicolettart about Frengo's Music

I find that my baby loves music, especially children singing. SInce I was a child I have watched Lo Zecchino D'Oro , a childrens' singing contest, on RAI. While in Rome I decided I wanted to pick up the latest CD and I found it in a music shop in Trastevere. It was near S. Maria in Trastevere. Italian CDs Average price for the 2CD set was 20 Euro, I think. I also bought Zucchero's latest, Shake, which was only 10 Euro.

RIP OFF RESTAURANT

by Ladymarian1 about ANTICA ROMA

I wish I'd read the comments made in April which unfortunately was too late before we departed.

2 small cold pieces of lasgane served with 1 small beer and 1 small coke by disparaging waiters - no garnish = Euros 26, whilst a table was nicely laid out for presumably a coach party. The second day we ate at McDonalds! You have been warned! Absolutely zero

Japanese Dining in Rome

by Jeannkelly about Sushisen - The New Kaitenzushi

Who says that one can't find a fabulous Japanese dining in Rome is absolutely wrong! Sushisen - The New Kaitenzushi would surprise you with its moving sushi bar complete with your authentic Japanese chefs.

You'll feel like you're dining in one of Tokyo's sushi bars, complete with waiters in Japanese kimonos.

They are open for lunch from 12-30-14.30 and dinner from 19.30-23.00 from Tuesdays to Sundays. Close on Mondays. I might be biased as I love every bit of Japanese food. But I do highly recommend this place. It's so far the best Japanese resto I have tried in town.

Try being seated in the sushi bar instead of being seated in the sala. I mean the experience of Japanese dining is just so different if your infront of a moving bar with all the daintily prepared sushi on the rack!
