Getting to Rome's Airports by Public Transportation

Both Rome airports, Fiumicino and Ciampino are connected by public transportation. If you are traveling in a group you should weigh the costs of tickets vs. a cab ride or one of the private shuttle services.


There are two trains that connect Rome to Fiumicino. The Leonardo Express is a direct train between Termini (the main train station in Rome) and the airport and makes no stops along the way. There is also a slower train that makes stops at other train stations in Rome, the FM1.

To get to Ciampino airport, you can take the Metro A (red line) from Termini to the last stop south of Rome at Anagnina. From the metro station there are Cotral buses that connect the airport.

You should allow plenty of time if you choose to take public transportation toCiampino. The trip on the metro will take at least 30 minutes and the bus will take another 20. See the Airports of Rome web site for the bus schedule.

The trip costs a total of 2 euro, 1 euro for the metro and 1 for the Cotral bus.

At the Anagnina metro station, you can purchase tickets for the Cotral bus at the newsstand. At the airport, there are automated machines that sometimes do not work. As a back up, or to avoid lines, you can also purchase them from the bar (coffee shop) at the arrival terminal.

Another option is to take a train from Termini to the Ciampino railway station and then a Cotral bus to the airport.
