Two types of trains between Rome and Assisi

Jump to last reply

Fodorites should be aware that there are two types of trains between Rome and Assisi: Interregionale/Regionale, and Eurostar Italia. Some services require a train change in Foligno. Others are direct. What is the difference between train types?

Eurostar Italia (ES)

1. Costs nearly 6 Euros more (14.87 versus 8.99 for the Interregionale/Regionale, in second class)
2. Travel time 1 hr. 45 mins. versus 2 hrs. 10 mins.
3. All seats sold on a reserved basis
4. Fully air conditioned
5. Quieter and smoother
6. Has beverage/snack service on rolling cart

Interregionale (IR)/Regionale (R)

1. Cheaper than Eurostar
2. Takes longer, though not by much
3. No seat reservations taken
4. Usually no air conditioning
5. No beverage/snack service
6. Not quite as smooth and quiet
7. Railcars not as modern
8. Some trains equipped to take bicycles

Recommendations: Take the train that best fits your schedule. Try to take a direct train. There are more scheduling possibilities on the IR/R than on the ES. If travelling on a very hot day, try to take the ES. If coming in directly from Fiumicino Airport, you have the choice of connecting either at Rome Termini or at Rome Tiburtina, as all Assisi-bound trains now stop at Tiburtina (Tiburtina is an easier connection from the airport). For such a short trip, the additional cost for first class is difficult to justify, although the difference is small.

Note: All Assisi-bound trains stop at Spoleto and Foligno. All proceed to Perugia.
In Spoleto, there are bus connections to Norcia and Cascia. In Foligno, there are bus connections to Spello, Bevagna and Montefalco.
