Leonardo Express

Rome Fiumicino Airport Train

Leonardo Express logoThe Leonardo Express is the quickest way to get from Fiumicino Airport (a.k.a. Leonardo da Vinci International Airport) to central Rome.

Trains run at 30-minute intervals from early morning until late at night, taking just 31 minutes to cover the 30 km or 20 miles between the airport and Rome's Termini Station.

The Leonardo Express first-class fare of €14 is about 50 percent higher than what you'd pay for a second-class ticket on a normal commuter train between Fiumicino and Termini, but there are no intermediate stops, and you won't have to worry about jockeying for a seat during rush hour.

In this illustrated, step-by-step article, we'll show you:

  • Other trains that are worth considering if you're short on cash or are traveling to the historic center, Trastevere, the cruise port at Civitavecchia, or other areas that are easier to reach by commuter rail.

For more information about Leonardo da Vinci Airport (including other forms of ground transportation such as taxis, buses, and shuttles), see our Fiumicino Airport article and our Rome Airport and Cruise Transfers page.

  • Note: Departing passengers who use the Leonardo Express to reach FCO get a discount on the optional "Fast Track" security line in Terminal 3 and cheaper access to VIP lounges.
