Riva del Garda to Rome

Hi all,

I have to travel from Riva del Garda to Rome this thursday, Oct 23. I have checked TrenItalia from Verona to Rome and it is very expensive. Car share at http://www.blablacar.com/ is not available on that day. Are there any other relatively cheap options? -- may be go to another place and start from there or any other option. I cannot find a bus service from Verona to Rome.

I understand that I should have made the booking in advance but I couldn't do it. Please let me know your suggestions.

Have you looked at taking the local trains instead of the more expensive expresses?

You haven't said how much you expect to pay - it won't be free. And in Italy buses typically don't use have the same routes as trains.

If you can get to Bergamo airport, Blu Express flies from there to FCO.

Thank you for the replies. I would have loved to pay something like 20 euros, which I think was the ticket price of the train earlier. But anything under 40 euros is fine. Currently, the train tickets are close to 80 euros.

Where can I look for local trains?

@sandralist, getting to that place and then taking a flight would be (equally or more) expensive.

Check rome2rio.com. There may be a rather round - about about way that's fairly cheap.

Well it looks like none of the options come anywhere near the 20 euros the OP wants to pay - which seem to me to be a really super budget price - perhaps just not realistic.

Thank you all, for the suggestions. I went ahead and purchased the overnight train ticket from Rovereto to Rome for 48 euros. I asked the locals here as well and there doesn't seem to be any options except buying tickets in advance.

@travelinggaby, yes, Riva is beautiful. Town is surrounded by mountains and it is very lively in the town center even at/past midnight.
