Train Travel in Italy: Basic Information
September 3, 2019

We recommend you to fly to Rome as it is cheaper and also easier to get to Camporsevoli. From Fiumicino Airport, there is a train called the Leonardo Express that goes straight to Rome’s main train station, Termini. How to Get from Roma Fiumicino Airport to Chiusi Train Station

Once you retreive your luggage from the baggage claim (ritiro bagagli), you can head toward the airport train station and buy your ticket. Another option is buying it online which I will be explaining how in my next post.

How to Get from Roma Fiumicino Airport to Chiusi Train Station

Pictured above are automatic train ticket machines that you will find at the entrance to the train tracks at the airport.  The screen can be changed into English. Also, they DO accept credit cards. This is probably the easiest way to get your ticket unless you want to wait in line and speak to an Italian. If you would like to practice your Italian, feel free, although most ticket sellers do speak English. 


If you purchase your ticket online you DO NOT HAVE TO VALIDATE THE TICKET before boarding

If you purchase your ticket at the automatic machine you DO HAVE TO VALIDATE THE TICKET before boarding. 

The ticket that comes out of the machine is shown below:

The validation machines in the Airport train station are shown below:

On the Leonardo Express trains, you can sit anywhere, there are no assigned seats. There are luggage racks on the train to store luggage for the 30-minute train ride.

How to take the train From Roma Termini Train Station to Chiusi Train Station

Once you arrive at Roma Termini(the only stop), you can head to another automatic machine and purchase your ticket to Chiusi-Chianciano Terme. 

Depending on the time of day you arrive in Rome there will be a few options for trains. Let me explain the different types of trains in Italy.

Regionale: This is the slowest train. It stops at every small station.

Intercity: This train stops in medium-sized cities, not as slow as Regionale.

Frecciarossa: The fastest trains in Italy. They go to big cities like: Rome to Florence and Florence to Milan.

In the next post, you will learn how to purchase your ticket online on Trenitalia.
