Torino / Turin to Roma / Rome by train

Frecce trains operated by Trenitalia compete with Italo trains on the north to south high speed rail route in Italy.
The two services take the same route so have similar journey times, so the key differences are; the ticket prices, the agents which sell them and the on-board facilities on the trains - hence it's worth taking a look at the 'Train guides'.

For those that favor scenery over speed, there is also a daily Frecciabianca service which takes the non high-speed 'classic' route by the Mediterranean coast.
An Intercity train also takes this coastal route and it provides a cheaper option for both ticket purchasers and rail pass users.
