Introduction

This list is based on the timetable in force from 15 December 2019 until 13 June 2020. 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 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.

This high-speed line is used by trains between Firenze and Roma, and south of Orte also by trains to and from the Ancona line. Unlike most other high-speed lines in Italy, this is electrified throughout at 3,000 volts and has conventional signalling, so can be used by all types of passenger trains. There are eleven connections between the direttissima and the old main line, but that at Settebagni is no more than crossovers where the two lines run parallel. These are not normally used by passenger trains. Some other connections are several kilometres long. IC and overnight trains may be diverted off the diresttissima if running late, so use of connections by these trains is susceptible to change. The routing of high speed and local trains is more reliable.

Following the introduction of high-speed services between Milano and Napoli there is far less use of connections on and off the Firenze - Roma direttissima. The direttissima is being resignalled to ERTMS standards and there are plans to convert it from 3,000 volts dc to 25 kV ac, at least between Arezzo and Orte. This may result in no further passenger use of connections to the old main line at Chiusi Nord, Chiusi Sud, Orvieto Nord, Orvieto Sud and Orte Nord.

In headings to each section below, junctions and the next open station on the old main line are listed in the order they would be passed by a southbound train. In all cases 1º Bivio is on the direttissima and 2º Bivio is on the old main line.

Obscure services

A reduced high-speed service is in operation, as a consequence of travel restrictions imposed by the Italian Government. Trains shown below may be cancelled. See the trenitalia website for details.

[47] (52C3-69B3) IT20/101

The full length of the direttissima is used by all high-speed trains non-stop between Roma and Firenze or stations to the north.

No trains use the direttissima between the last high-speed trains of one day and the first ones of the next. Many night trains run the full length of the old main line between Firenze and Orte.
