Previously, the fastest journey time between the two cities was two hours and 59 minutes. However, the new route between Rome's Tiburtina station and Milan's Rogoredo station will cut nearly 15 minutes off that time, covering the approximate 565 kilometers (350 miles) of track at speeds of up to 300 km/h.
Ticket prices for the new service, which does not stop at Rome Termini and Milan Central to "reduce congestion" at the main stations, start at €78.90/85.78 USD for a single. The train runs once a day on weekdays, with the Frecciarossa 9682 leaving Rome at 5:30 AM and arriving in Milan at 8:15 AM, and the Frecciarossa 9681 departing Milan at 8:44 PM and arriving in Rome at 11:29 PM.
This new connection brings the total number of daily Frecciarossa connections between Rome and Milan to 90, seven of which are direct. Additionally, there are 81 other Frecciarossa Rome-Milan routes that involve changes, with total journey times ranging from three hours and eight minutes. Italy's other high-speed rail operator, Italo, also offers 64 connections daily between the two cities, with a journey time of three hours and ten minutes.
