Naples-Rome by train
From the historic central station of Carlo Cocchia in Piazza Garibaldi in Naples it is extremely easy to reach Rome. From the heart of the Neapolitan historical center you can reach the beautiful post-war building of the Roma Termini station in the historic center of the city of Romulus and Remus, but the path is full of beauties.
The path starts immediately with the view of the beautiful high-speed Afragola station, designed by Zaha Hadid, one of the best examples of contemporary architecture in Naples, then the route is divided between the regional and the high-speed one. The regional route is a real pleasure for the eyes because it allows us to enjoy unique panoramas, including the Domizio coast and the entire Gulf of Gaeta with Formia, Sperlonga and Gaeta itself as the main attraction.
High speed, on the other hand, gives us bucolic landscapes of the Caserta countryside, passing through a glimpse of the Gulf of Gaeta before plunging into the park of the Castelli Romani, overlooking Lake Albano and Nemi, then reaching the heart of Rome.
- To go from Naples to Rome by high speed train it takes about an hour and ten minutes and the tickets price starts from about 40 Euros.

Naples-Rome by car from the sea
If you are a passionate about cars and driving, the journey by car from Naples to Rome can only be a pleasure for the mind and the body. The two cities are connected by the motorway which in a short time takes you to Rome between rural landscapes of Campania and Ciociaria, but what I will propose to you today is a slightly longer route, but rich in natural landscapes and cities full of culture and traditions through a path that overlooks the sea.
Leaving from Naples, from the heart of its historic center, we head towards the Phlegraean fields, where amid beautiful landscapes and the history of the city of Naples outside the walls, we are greeted by the beautiful Pozzuoli with its sea and its beautiful Roman amphitheater, together to the profiles of Procida and Ischia that outline the horizon.
Continuing on the Phlegraean coast we reach the Domizio coast that, after Minturno, leads us to cross the border between Campania and Lazio with the cable-stayed bridge a few steps from the Ferdinandeo bridge on the Garigliano river in the archaeological area of Minturnae with which it creates a perfect union between innovation and history.
Entering Lazio we walk along the Via Appia, which, at the time of the ancient Romans, was full of villas of the Roman patricians, of which we find remains along the way; the path, then, plunges into the Gulf of Gaeta and its beautiful cities overlooking the sea, starting from Formia, with its beautiful old town full of historical finds still perfectly preserved, passing through Sperlonga and Gaeta again.
Leaving Formia and its 'sisters', we continue on to Circeo with Terracina and its archaeological remains such as the temple of Jupiter Anxur that stands on the acropolis of the ancient city. We leave the Circeo behind and we pass to the Roman coast with the beautiful beaches of Sabaudia, continuing with Anzio and the remains of Nero's villa and Ostia with its beach.
Once we have traversed the entire coastline between Campania and Lazio, we just have to walk along the Castelli Romani park and its lakes, greeting the urban complex of EUR and Cinecittà and reach the center of Rome.

Naples-Rome by plane
Last but not least, the airplane. The journey between Naples and Rome tells an ultra millennial story, which you can experience in different ways, as I showed you before, but the gloss of all this can only be the journey by plane. From Capodichino, the flight departs with a U-turn, allowing you to see the whole city of Naples from a bird's eye view from the islands to Vesuvius, passing through the clear view of the Ippodameo scheme, between thistles and decumani, of the historic center, the castles that rise above the whole city and finally the Tyrrhenian Sea. After just under an hour of flight, you must already put the seats in an upright position and enjoy the landing between the beaches of the Roman coast and the mouth of the Tiber, before reaching Fiumicino, where we can reach the center by metro or bus From Rome.
