Question on Transportation

I have a question.....we will be spending two days in Rome next month and then traveling to southern Italy, (Altomonte, Calabria). I am looking for the best way to get from Rome to Altomonte. I am looking at bus and train. I was told there is no train and only bus, but having a hard time on finding a schedule and pricing????

I went to the public transporation site and clicked on route planning but nothing would come up?

Any suggestions?

Hi, by train your nearest train station to Altomonte is in Belvedere Marittimo. About 5h journey from Rome and you would have still 50 km of windy mountains roads to travel.


Every italian town is served by a bus but in the case of villages like Altomonte I'm guessing the frequency will be down to 2 runs a day.

Your best option is to fly Rome to Lamezia Terme with Alitalia/AirOne:


and then rent a car to get to Altomonte via motorway (1h 30mins):
