Roma / Rome to Perugia by train

In common with many Italian rail routes there is a choice of services when making a journey by train from Rome/Roma to Perugia:

  1. If the timing suit sand you want the peace of mind of a reserved seat, take the Intercity (IC) train.
    Also because limited numbers of the most 'Super Economy' tickets will be made available for the IC train, if you book ahead, it can be a money saver.

  2. The RV trains are more frequent and you can book last minute at the station with the peace of mind that you won't have saved by booking in advance.
    So if you buy tickets on the travel date, these trains become the cheapest option.

Though this isn't a high speed route, so the Intercity trains are only marginally faster.
