Italy (Lazio) - Lines with Obscure or Sparse passenger services

Jump to navigationJump to search


This list is based on the timetable in force until 12 December 2020. Although dated as 'from 14 June 2020' the timetable has been updated and reissued monthly since then. The current edition shows some trains as running for only a few months, but later updates may extend the period of operation. Users are recommended to check the Trenitalia website to ensure they are using the latest version.

Table numbers quoted here are from In Treno Tutt'Italia, the official Trenitalia timetable. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information. Map references relate to the European Railway Atlas Regional Series and, in italic, to the Schweers+Wall Atlante ferroviario d’Italia e Slovenia.

Two useful symbols exist which show the booked route for trains not calling at a station: in the middle of the train column, a vertical bar "|" means that the train passes through the station without stopping, whereas a dot "." means that the train does not pass through that station but instead takes a different route.

Obscure services

[33] (161A1, 146A2-146C4) IT20/121

Roma S Pietro – Città del Vaticano

(162B4, 149B3) IT20/123


The branch line to the Vatican City has been used since September 2015 by tourist trains to Albano Laziale, for a visit to the Ville Pontificie. Travel on the train is possible only as part of a day tour, which starts at 08:00 with a tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Gardens. The train leaves from Città del Vaticano for Albano Laziale late morning. The return journey, departing late afternoon, terminates at Roma S Pietro. The train uses route IT20/124 in both directions.

The train is normally an electric multiple-unit and the branch is only wired as far as the border between Italy and the Vatican City. The train is unable to enter the Città del Vaticano station fully and stops where the arch in the boundary wall crosses the railway.

Trips operate on Saturdays, but details of available dates can only be found by initiating the booking procedure on the Vatican Museums website.

There is an option of visiting the Ville Pontificie by train without a tour of the Vatican, but passengers on this trip are picked up at Roma S Pietro and do not travel from Città del Vaticano.

Tours can become fully booked well in advance.
