ROME, GETTING THERE AND AWAY

ESPAÑOL

AIRPORTS:

  • The main one is Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino, 30 km west:
    • Taxi: flat fee of 48 € during the day. Be aware that Fiumicino City taxis charge more than those of Rome. You must find the white taxis with a ‘Roma Capitale’ sign on doors. It takes about an hour to the city center.
    • Uber is assumed to work legally in Rome, although its website is not working properly.
    • Shuttle (shared). There are two companies: Airport Connection Services and Airport Shuttle. Usually they charge from 30 €, this second company only 6 € extra per person.
    • Train and bus:
      • I recommend the FL1 train. Runs every 15 minutes, goes to four stations and costs 8 €.
      • A little faster is the Leonardo Express but personally I do not recommend it, as it leaves every 30 minutes, it goes only to Termini and costs € 14 one way (+1 € if bought at the station).
      • For those arriving during the night, the only option is the Cotral bus.
