Getting Rome


Getting to Rome from the airport.

The main airport in the great city of Rome, Leonardo da Vinci (also called as Fiumicino), is situated 26km (15 miles) southwest of the city center. A train runs among the airport and the central railroad station, Stazione Termini. It operates every 30 minutes among the hours of 5:52 am and 10:52 pm. The trip lasts almost 30 minutes and costs 11,00. There is also a train that runs every 15 minutes among 5:06 am and 10:36 pm from the airport to the local stations of Trastevere, Ostiense and Tiburtina and costs 5,50.

There is a night bus from the airport to the train station in Tiburtina. (This is NOT the main train station, Stazione Termini.) The tariff of a taxi during the day from the airport is the sum of what the meter reads plus a charge of 1.03 for each piece of luggage. The total cost runs among 30-40.

Also there is other airport called as Ciampino, approximately 20 km (12 miles) southeast of the center city. Ciampino principally offers domestic flights and charter flights. ATRAL buses run every 40 minutes from Ciampino to the ANAGNINA stop of Subway Line A (price: 1,20). Buses reach also Termini Station (price 6,00 Sitshuttle, 8 euros Terravision). A taxi from Ciampino to the center city costs about 30-40.

There is a fixed (flat rate) fee for taxis going among the city (defined as inside the Aurelian Walls) and the two airports, Fiumicino and Ciampino. The fixed fee to & from Fiumicino is 40 and to & from Ciampino is 30 (up to 4 people, luggages included).


Regular trains from both the central Railroad Station, Stazione Termini, and the Tiburtina Station connect to the principal cities in Italy and Europe. The Eurostar trains are the most swift, next are the Intercity trains and last are the local trains. For the Eurostar trains you must purchase a ticket and reserve a seat before boarding. Tickets may be purchased at the stations (however, there can be very long lines); at most travel agencies (there is no extra fee) or online at the TrenItalia Web Site

On the Internet you have to register and pay with a credit card and your tickets will be waiting for you on the train. Remember to always validate your tickets at the yellow electronic boxes situated in the boarding areas before boarding the train.


Buses to other Italian cities and to European destinations leave from in front of the Tiburtina train station. Not Rome's main train station, Stazione Termini.
