By train, a day-trip is more feasible—the fastest train takes about 3 hours. But even if you were to depart at 6 a.m. with plans to spend 12 hours there, you wouldn’t be able to take in all the fantastic sites Rome has to offer, from the Colosseum to the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the restaurants of the hip Trastevere neighborhood.

The bus ride from Milan to Rome is actually quite beautiful. On the road southeast toward Bologna on SS9, known as Via Aemilia, you will drive past idyllic Italian pastures and through villages like Parma and Modena.
