The train stations are all situated in the hearts of the cities and are easily accessible via public transport, so you should be able to reach them fairly quickly.

When to book Bologna to Rome train tickets?

The general rule is the sooner you purchase your train tickets, the better. A Bologna to Rome high-speed train is one of the most popular choices for traveling between the cities and the tickets get sold out very quickly, so it’s never a good idea to postpone the purchase till the last possible minute. Also, take into consideration that the “last-minute” tickets cost 2.5 times more than the ones you’d buy in advance.
