The FR5 is a regional rail route. It forms part of the network of the Lazio regional railways (Italian: ferrovie regionali del Lazio), which is operated by Trenitalia, and converges on the city of Rome, Italy.
The route operates over the infrastructure of the Pisa–Livorno–Rome railway. Within the territory of the comune of Rome, it plays the role of a commuter railway. It is estimated that on average about 40,000 passengers travel on an FR5 train each day.
The designation FR5 appears only in publicity material (e.g. public transport maps), in the official timetables, and on signs at some stations. The electronic destination boards at stations on the FR5 route show only the designation "R5" for that route.
The FR5, a radial route, runs from the west coast at Civitavecchia in a south easterly direction, via the Pisa–Livorno–Rome railway, to Roma San Pietro, and then around the southern side of Rome's city centre to Roma Termini.
The stations on the FR5 are as follows:
- Roma Termini
- Roma Tuscolana
- Roma Ostiense
- Roma Trastevere
- Roma San Pietro
- Roma Aurelia (limit of urban service)
- Torre in Pietra-Palidoro
- Palo Laziale
- Marina di Cerveteri
- Santa Severa
- Santa Marinella
