Rome Urban Railway

Rome Urban Railway

The urban trains in Rome, called Ferrovie Urbane, complement the three metro lines and are run by the same company. The tickets are the same and the prices too.

Urban railway lines

The Ferrovie Urbane is made up of following three lines:

  • Rome – Lido
  • Rome – Viterbo
  • Rome – Giardinetti

Of these lines the most important from a tourist's point of view is the Rome-Lido, since it stops at Ostia Antica.

Where to buy the tickets?

Since the tickets are the same as other forms of public transportation in Rome, these can be bought in suburban train stations, metro stations, newsagents and convenience stores. If your hotel is near one of these stations or you think you’ll be using public transport in Rome regularly, then we recommend you get a few tickets at a time or buy a travel card.

Timetable and frequency

Suburban trains run approximately from 5:30 am to 10:30 pm. The Rome-Lido line runs until later, with the final train departing at 11:30 pm.

Trains leave every 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the time of day.

Keep in mind that if you want to travel to the outskirts, you will have to buy another more expensive ticket.
