Rome Fiumicino Airport
Ground transportation from Fiumicino Airport to Rome
Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) Airport is about 30 km or 20 miles from the center of Rome. Here's how to reach the city:
The Leonardo Express is a first-class train that runs between the airport and Termini (Rome's main railroad station) in 32 minutes with no intermediate stops.
Trains depart at 15- to 30-minute intervals. For details, including illustrated step-by-step instructions for buying tickets and using the train, see our Leonardo Express article.
The FL1 rail line runs between the Fiumicino Airport railway station to Rome's Trastevere, Piramide/Ostiense, and Tuscolana stations.
The FL1 is cheaper than the Leonardo Express and more convenient for some parts of the city and the cruise port at Civitavecchia.
See "Other trains" in our Leonardo Express article for more information.
. SIT operates bus shuttles that stop at Fiumicino City, Fiumicino Airport, the Vatican, and Termini Station, with frequent departures from the crack of dawn until mid-evening.
Travel times from the airport are 45 minutes to the Vatican and 60 minutes to Termini, or possibly longer in heavy traffic. For English-language information and timetables, click here.
Another option is Schiaffini's Rome Airport Bus to Termini Station, which offers free Wi-Fi on board and has comparable fares.
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 €48 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.
