Visit: Riva del Garda to Rome

Arriving at Riva Del Garda on 12 June 14, (two couples) with plans to visit Rome on 14 and 15 June. What is the cheapest way to do this trip? Thanks.

Hi, from Riva del Garda to Rome is a long way to go for an overnight trip, it's about 500-600km.

Driving there would mean the cost of the car hire plus petrol, and it will take about 5-6 hours each way.

You could go by train but, again, it wouldn't be a fast journey. The nearest train station to Riva is at Rovereto but you would probably have to change at Verona. Or you could go to Verona for a train but it would take about two hours on a bus from Riva to Verona before you even get on the train. You can check journey times on www.trenitalia.com

Or maybe you could fly between the two?

Whichever way you go it won't be cheap.

From Rovereto to Roma there are three direct daily trains: 7:47, 15:47, 17:47

Travel time 3 hours 53 minutes.

A plane trip would be probably longer, counting the transfers to and from airports

That is what I would call the horns of a dilemma.

Thanks a ton.
