The fastest and most comfortable way to get from Rome to Milan is by high-speed train service. Alternatively, you can take a regional train or bus for a lower price. A high-speed train ride will take you to the destination in 2 hours 55 minutes with the one-way ticket cost starting from 20 euro. Milan is 358 miles north of Rome. The distance between the two cities by car is 479 km. Moreover, Italy’s largest international airports are in Rome and Milan, so if you need to get between these cities quickly, many flights are offered daily.
Let’s consider all transport options:
Getting from Rome to Milan by fast train is the most convenient option. You can reach Milan in 2 hours 55 minutes. However, many regional trains have lower prices for tickets, but the journey will be longer. Nevertheless, it is one of the best options for day trips from Rome.
As shown in the screenshot, the cost varies according to the time of departure and class. “Prima” means the first class dedicated to travelers seeking journeys with maximum comfort. The “Smart” option gives the best deals, but don’t worry; its comfort level is still amazing.
Also, Trenitalia is a good alternative way to reach Florence from the Eternal City. However, the website has a bit more complicated registration procedure, and sometimes there are faults. Trains from this service depart once in an hour, and I suggest you take high-speed trains Frecciarossa.
Since getting to Milan from Rome by train is the best and fastest way, it is also the most expensive one. As mentioned above, the one-way ticket price ticket starts from 20 euro and duration is almost 3 hours to reach the destination. Moreover, do not forget to plan your journey to the station in Rome from which you will have a train to Milan. Usually, trains depart from Roma Termini, and it is the central station of Rome. Therefore, if you live nearby any Roman train station, you will easily reach Roma Termini. Also, many buses will get you to this station, but I recommend using trains or metro not to be late.
FlixBus company is one of the most popular bus services for budget travelers who want to visit Milan from Rome since it is the cheapest kind of transportation to travel. Buses depart from Rome Tiburtina Station once in 1-2 hours. You can book tickets online or buy them directly at the bus station. The journey will take from 7 to 11 hours. Bus fares start from 18.99 euro.
For getting from Rome to Milan by car, you need the A1 autostrada, which runs between these two cities, and you can reach Milan in 5.5 hours. I recommend using this option for a longer trip version with a visit to other cities on your way. For instance, you can visit Parma, Bologna, Florence, and Siena.
Fix price transfer from the Fiumicino Airport to Rome
Since two main Italian international airports are located in Rome and Milan, getting from one city to another by plane is also easy and accessible. However, this option is the most expensive one if you will not buy tickets in advance. Milan has two airports: the larger is Milan Malpensa with international flights and the smaller Milan Linate with flights mainly from other parts of Italy and Europe. In addition, some buses connect both airports with Milan central station (Milano Centrale) and trains that run from Milano Malpensa to the central station.
There are many options where to stay in Milan on any budget. Since the city’s transportation system is very well developed, you can also consider options outside the city center.
