How to get from Fiumicino airport to Rome


This guide on how to get from Fiumicino airport to Rome, will show you all the transfer options to the city center or to your hotel, in the most comfortable and fast way.

Rome has two international airports: Fiumicino and Ciampino, where direct flights from Spain and many other cities in Europe land, from low cost companies such as Ryanair, Vueling and Easyjet in addition to other large companies such as Alitalia and Lufthansa.
In this case, the Rome Fiumicino or Leonardo da Vinci Airport, located 30 kilometers from the city, is the busiest airport in Italy and has 4 terminals, located very close to each other.

Based on the three times that we have traveled to the Eternal City, the last one for a month to write this travel guide to Rome, we have made this post that will help you make the transfer from Rome Fiumicino airport to downtown according to your preferences and budget. We start!


The Leonardo Express train will take you from Fiumicino Airport to Termini Station, in half an hour for 14 euros per person.
This means of transport, operating from 6: 30h to 23: 30h and with a frequency of passage between 15 and 30 minutes, is the fastest, since you will avoid the traffic of Rome.
The airport train station is perfectly signposted and can be reached on foot in a few minutes from all terminals. Keep in mind that most flights from Spain land in terminal 2.
Another train that leaves the airport is the regional FL1, which is slower than the Leonardo Express, but which can be useful if you have the hotel near one of its many stops such as Trastevere.

The areas around Termini station or the beautiful Trastevere neighborhood, are two of our favorites to stay in Rome.
If you want to have a good connection to the airport and the metro, we recommend the UNA Hotel Roma, located just in front of the Termini train station, which in addition to its excellent location, has a very complete breakfast, modern facilities and friendly staff.
If instead you prefer to stay in Trastevere, the most beautiful neighborhood in Rome, with a great offer in restoration, we recommend Residenza San Calisto, located a few meters from Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere and with one of the best quality relationships / city price.
