DISCOVER TIBERLAND BY ROMA NORD RAIL OR BY BOAT
ROMA NORD RAIL
A historic railway line connects the centre of Rome with Viterbo in just over two and a half hours, passing through rural landscapes and towns of unexpected beauty.
The first section, as far as Civita Castellana, was built in the early 20th century, extended to the regional capital of Tuscia in the 1930s, and completed between the 1950s and 1970s.
Today, two types of service run on the line: urban, from Piazzale Flaminio to Montebello, and suburban from Piazzale Flaminio to Viterbo.
The suburban section makes it easy to reach several towns, including Sacrofano, Morlupo, Magliano and Rignano, as well as places and sites of cultural and environmental interest, and you can also take your bike with you on the train.
The line is much used on weekdays by commuters, who for years now have been asking for the number of trains to be increased and journey times to be reduced.
However, for those who are not in a hurry and want to treat themselves to a day out of town, without the stress of traffic and parking, the Roma Nord railway line is an excellent alternative, both ecological and practical, for discovering enchanting and still little known places, not far from the capital.
It is advisable to always check the timetable before leaving.
Enjoy exploring Tiberland!
A BOAT TRIP ON THE TIBER
Experience the city from an unusual perspective: with a boat trip on the Tiber!
Rome and its river have always been intimately linked. You cannot experience the capital without coming into contact with the Tiber and it is impossible not to be fascinated by the placid flow of its waters, which cross the heart of the city on their way to the sea, between Ostia and Fiumicino.
Perhaps not everyone knows, however, that it is possible to enjoy a different experience, in contact with the river – a boat trip with a choice of two routes.
A short route restricted to the historic city centre, operating in both directions, connects the Molo Sant'Angelo, near Castel Sant'Angelo, with Tiber Island and offers unusual and exciting views of Rome's bridges and historic buildings.
A second navigable section offers a longer and more complete experience and extends from the Marconi Bridge to the excavations of Ostia Antica, following the Tiber from the urban area almost to the sea.
The trip can be combined with a visit to the Ostia Antica Archaeological Park, thanks to the new entrance opened on the side of the ancient Porta Marina, and is available to both individuals and groups with accompanying person.
Navigating the river means retracing the history of the city from its legendary origins through to its modern-age transformations, and admiring its extraordinary artistic and architectural heritage from a different perspective and less usual angle. But that’s not all.
A river trip enables you to come into direct contact with the Tiber, a fundamental natural and landscape feature of the area, and to discover the great biodiversity which characterises the river’s ecosystem, and the many different plant and animal species that are part of it.
A unique and enjoyable experience, perfect for adults and children alike and an original way of combining culture and nature able to create magical and unforgettable moments.
