Rome/Catanzaro: Plane or Train?

TRAIN OPTION:

You must change trains at Lamezia Terme. Total travel time from Rome is about six hours. With the Intercity train at the promotional advance purchase rate, you'll pay as little as 28 Euros (pus 2.40 Euros for the "regionale" between Lamezia and Catanzaro).

AIR OPTION:

On Blu Express, I see fares as low as 19.99 Euros from Roma FCO to Lamezia Terme, including one checked bag under 15 kilos and payment by credit card. Remember to add the transportation costs to the airports.

On Easy Jet, I see fares as low as 29.99 Euros, including one checked bag under 20 kilos and payment by credit card.

There is airporter bus service to Catanzaro, which is more convenient than going to the Lamezia train station and taking a "regionale" train:

WHICH TO DO?

IF you're simply connecting at FCO from an intercontinental/international to a domestic flight, flying is better than taking the train.

IF you're departing from central Rome, the plane will be a little faster, but the train will be cheaper (if you can get the 30% discount on the IC train).
