Rome: Vatican to Tiburtina Station by bus?

Jump to last reply

Looking for feedback about how to get from Borgo (St. Peter’s Square area) to Florence on a Saturday in July midday. This is for a family of 5 (all teenagers).

Plan is to take the #62 bus (not the #64) which starts in Borgo, then ends at Tiburtina Station where we will have already reserved the Italo train to Florence.

Reasoning:
1. Taxi is out, since we would need 2 and prefer not to split up.
2. Trenitalia means Termini which is chaotic and can have pickpocket gangs. Will be vulnerable to crime while keeping track of my children and bags and prefer not to have to slap/swear at/smack urchin pickpockets in front of my children.
3. Since we will be at the first stop for the 62 bus, we are sure to get seats. And getting off at the last stop, no need to push thru any crowds to disembark.
4. Midday Saturday will have fewer bus riders and less crowding.
Options not taken:
a. We could walk to San Pietro commuter rail station and get to Ostiense Station, then pick up the Italo there, but the station is farther to walk than the bus stop and how often do the suburban trains run on the weekend?
b. Could walk north to the metro and take that all the way to Tiburtina with an unfortunate transfer at Termini (see pickpocket ref above). The way I read it the platforms of the Metro at Termini are not secure, i.e no ticket is required to loiter there.
