Fiumicino is Rome's major airport and it is open 24H. Nevertheless, we advise visitors to plan their arrival during daytime to avoid any possible inconveniences due to service restrictions during the night hours.
Here are the 5 TOP ways to get to Rome from Fiumicino
The first option is to take a regional train. This train is perfect if your hotel is situated in the Termini station area as well as the Trastevere or Vatican area as it stops in the main neighborhoods of the City.
It runs every 15 minutes (Mon-Fri) and every 30 minutes on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
This railway service connects Fiumicino Airport to Rome Termini Stations in only 30 minutes. This option is perfect if you don’t want to waste too much time sitting on a train. At the price of 16 euros, you can reach the heart of the city in the blink of the eye.
These trains are scheduled to run every 30 minutes (Mon-Sun).
Buses and shuttle services
If you’re in town on a budget or simply enjoy shuttle buses then, my friend, you are in good luck.
Fiumicino is connected to the city by a variety of bus lines. From the public regional bus Cotral to private shuttle services such as Shuttlebus, Flixbus, and others.
If you’re in a rush, have no time to waste on public transport and just want to fully enjoy the comforts of the 21st century then I recommend taking a taxi. Just be careful, many illegal taxis use Fiumicino as their hunting grounds. So pick a white, licensed taxi, tell them your address and inform them that you know that there are standard fairs from and to the airport.
From Ciampino to Rome…with love.
The Ciampino airport mainly serves low-cost airlines. Being one of the smallest airports of the country, it is equipped only with essential services such as ATMs, Duty-Free shops and Food Points that cater to your needs in the best way possible.
Here are the TOP 3 ways to get to Rome from Ciampino.
Buses and shuttle services.
The Terravision Shuttle connects the airport to Termini in approximately 40 minutes. The first bus leaves the airport at 8:15 am, and the last departure is at 12:15 am.
Outside of the airport, you will find different shuttle lines ready to take you to the City Centre.
Unfortunately, Ciampino does not have an internal railway. However, if you wish to get to town by train, you must first take a bus from the airport terminal to the Ciampino Train Station.
Once again, this is the easiest and stress-free option. Considering the fact that Ciampino is a very small airport, there are only white and licensed taxis so you won’t be tricked. But, always remember that there are standard fees from and to the airport.
