When travelling to Soriano from Orte, at the entrance of the station look for a blue ‘Cotral’ bus heading for Soriano. These buses connect the town to Orte and neighbouring towns. Please note however due to frequent stops this journey can take 50 minutes, the last bus departs for Soriano just after 9pm and there is no service on Sundays.
Due to an excellent road network and in order to experience all that the region has to offer we recommend the use of a car when visiting ‘la Tuscia’, simply as once outside the larger cities bus services can be less than convenient. They do not always run at suitable times and short journeys can take much longer due to the number of commuter stops. The trains however work very well. We advise when travelling to many of the larger cities, for example Rome, it is simply easier to drive to Orte station and take a direct train into the heart of the city. There is a large car park at the station where you can leave your car all day currently for as little as €2.
NB An all day travel card into Rome (a ‘BIRG), with use of the buses and metro, is currently priced at €12. (Please always remember to stamp your tickets at the start of any journey in the yellow machines at the station entrance.)
