Transportation Services To/From Airport to Rome

Updated on September 8, 2013

Subway in Rome

By Train

Going to Rome via train is recommended for travelers who have lots of luggage with them. Most of the trains in Rome are designed not only for commuters but for luggage as well. Roma Termini, which is the main railway station of Rome, is located between 00:30 and 4:30. Other main railway stations in Rome include Trastevere, Tuscolana, Ostiense and Tiburtina. Almost all trains intended for long distance travel will need to stop at the Tibutina station when passing Rome between 00:30 and 4:30. For a direct travel from the airport to Rome, you may choose Leonardo Express train. This particular train leaves the airport every half an hour. From the airport, it gets directly to Roma Termini.

Train tickets can be obtained at the departure platform for €15. The tickets sold are basically a general ticket for a specified route meaning, there is no available ticket for a specific train or for a specific schedule. Before using the ticket, you need to have it stamped first in a yellow validation machine. Just always remember that validation of the ticket will expire within 90 minutes from the time it has been stamped.

Rome, Italy

By Car

Getting to Rome using your own car can be quite easy. As what many say, all roads can lead you to Rome. Rome is basically enclosed with a motorway known to be the Grande Raccordo Anulare or GRA. You may use the GRA as your guide when you are planning to go to the center of the city. However, if you are planning to tour around somewhere else, you may use the GPS.

Line 110 Bus

By bus

Traveling by bus is said to be the easiest and cheapest way to get into Rome. For as much as €4-€6, you can have a one way trip from the Fiumicino Airport to the Center of Rome already.

By taxi

If you are travelling with your family, you can choose to ride on a taxi instead of taking the train or perhaps the bus. This is because taxi in Rome will charge you a fix amount of €48 for a one way trip from Fiumicino Airport to the center of Rome and vice versa regardless of whether you are alone or not.

Clothes to Wear

Virtually, you are welcome to wear any dress that you want to wear for as long as it is not too revealing and skimpy. However, when you are planning to visit the churches, you need to wear something appropriate like a church dress for women because the churches in Rome strictly adhere to a modest dress code most especially for women. You also need to bring with you always a shawl or scarf to cover up knees, midsection and shoulders.

When walking around Rome, you need to wear appropriate walking shoes in order for you to avoid having blisters. Also, wearing walking shoes helps keep your feet pain free.
