Rome FCO Airport to Tarquinia

Here is how to get from Rome FCO Airport to the town of TARQUINIA cheaply and efficiently:

1. Take the Trenitalia unreserved airport train from Rome FCO Airport to Roma TRASTEVERE Station (8 Euros; 26 minutes travel time). This train runs every 15 minutes from Monday through Saturday and every 30 minutes on Sundays.

2. Connect to the Trenitalia unreserved regionale train from Roma TRASTEVERE Station to Tarquinia (5.60 Euros; 65 minutes travel time). This train runs hourly from Monday through Saturday and every two hours on Sundays.

3. You will need at least 5 minutes of ACTUAL connection time at Trastevere Station. Remember that the airport train might be running late.

DO NOT travel to Roma Termini or Tiburtina stations. Get off the airport train (going to Tiburtina) at the TRASTEVERE Station.

Children up to the age of 12 years, 0 days travel FREE on the Trenitalia airport train if accompanied by a paying adult (extra children pay 50% of the adult fare).

Children up to the age of 12 years, 0 days (no matter the number) travel at a 50% reduction on the Trenitalia unreserved regionale trains.

Toddlers up to the age of 4 years, 0 days ALWAYS travel FREE on ALL Trenitalia trains, without a ticket and without a guaranteed seat.

4. Purchase the train tickets once you arrive at FCO. There are both electronic ticket machines and staffed ticket windows at the Trenitalia FCO Airport train station, and Trenitalia has just added a new ticket machine (and staffed information kiosk) on the arrivals level of Terminal 3. Note that you will pay a small supplement if you choose to purchase the train tickets from one of the travel agencies at the train station or in the terminal building.

Purchase tickets for BOTH the airport train AND the Tarquinia-bound train from the Trenitalia airport train station ticket office. Purchasing the tickets together may result in a total fare of just 11 Euros. That way, you avoid needing to stand in line at Trastevere Station, risking to MISS your connection. Also, the manned ticket windows at Trastevere Station are closed on weekends and after 13:00 on weekdays during the summer season. The Tarquinia station is unmanned.

You MUST validate each ticket prior to boarding the respective train. Validation machines are found at the head of the departing platform. Failure to validate the ticket can result in the payment of a hefty fine.

(“Fiumicino Aeroporto” to “Tarquinia”)

NOTE: If you are starting out to Tarquinia from central Rome rather than from the airport, you can board the unreserved regionale train at Roma Termini, Ostiense, Trastevere or San Pietro stations. The fare from Termini is 6.90 Euros and 75-80 minutes travel time.

FROM THE TARQUINIA TRAIN STATION TO TARQUINIA:

When you get off the Trenitalia regionale train at the Tarquinia Station, take the local shuttle bus (operated by Eusepi bus lines) to the Barriera San Giusto Gate. Purchase the ticket (80 cents?) from the driver. The bus takes 10 minutes to cover the 3 kilometers into town.

(click on "scarica orario invernale linee urbane") Note that these schedules may not be current.

Get off the bus, walk through the San Giusto Gate, and within 50 meters you'll be smack in front of the Museo Nazionale Archeologico. The Hotel San Marco is on your right. The Etruscan tombs are a very pleasant 17 minutes on foot (1200 meters) from the museum, walking up Corso Vittorio Emanuele and turning right at Piazza Matteotti onto Via di Porta Tarquinia, past the church of San Francesco and the city walls, onto Via Ripagretta and the Strada Provinciale 43.

Don't miss wandering through the Medieval section of Tarquinia, to the Chiesa di Santa Maria in Castello, 450 meters from the Archeological Museum.

Traveling from Florence to Tarquinia for the weekend. As I understand it I take the train from Florence to the Rome Ostience station and then take the train to Tarquinia and then a short bus ride. These tickets do NOT have to be reserved in advance? Many thanks. You all are so helpful and I try to be as well.

No, if you go via Rome you'll change trains at Rome Termini.

There's a slower (4 hours, vs. 3 - 3.5 via Rome) yet cheaper option of traveling via Pisa.

Thank you. Do the tickets from Florence to Rome Termini and then to Tarquinia have to be reserved in advance for the fast train?

You don't have to get your tickets in advance, but you can save money by doing so on the Florence - Rome segment. From Rome to Tarquinia is a regional train so there's no benefit to purchasing in advance.

UPDATE to original posting:

Based on my trip to Tarquinia last July, I can report:

1. The bus fare from Tarquinia station to the Barriera San Giusto Gate is 60 cents. Buy the ticket from the driver. Get off the arriving train promptly and quickly proceed to the front of the station, because the bus won't wait long for arriving passengers.

2. The Hotel San Marco is closed due to bankruptcy. However, there is an excellent b&b across the street from the Archeological Museum, just 30 meters from the closed hotel. Read my review of Palazzo Rosati b&b on this website (hotel sections).
