Leonardo Express article.The Leonardo Express is a first-class train that runs between the airport and Termini (Rome's main railroad station) in 31 minutes with no intermediate stops. Trains depart at 30-minute intervals. For details, including illustrated step-by-step instructions for buying tickets and using the train, see our
Other trains" in our Leonardo Express article for more information.The FR1 rail line runs between the Fiumicino Airport railway station to Rome's Trastevere, Piramide/Ostiense, and Tuscolana stations. It's cheaper than the Leonardo Express and more convenient for some parts of the city and the cruise port at Civitavecchia. See "
You can hire a licensed cab at the official taxi stand outside Terminal 3 on the arrivals level. The flat fare between Fiumicino Airport and locations within Rome is €40 in either direction.
If you're going elsewhere (e.g., to the cruise port of Civitavecchia), you'll pay a metered rate with possible supplements for bulky luggage and other extras.
