Main airport in Rome
Rome Fiumicino airport is the former name of the Leonardo Da Vinci Airport. It is about 30 kilometers south-west of the city proper. The airport currently has four terminals (T1, T2, T3 and T5) which are reserved for domestic, international and intercontinental flights. The airport serves as the focal point for Alitalia, Italy’s major carrier. The Fiumicino is the sixth busiest airport in Europe based on the total number of passengers. In 2011, they served close to 40 million passengers. On that same year, it was recorded as the 25th busiest airport in the world.
Airport transfers from Fiumicino airport to Rome center
The Leonardo Express is the fastest and the most comfortable transportation between the airport and the Termini station (which is at the center of Rome). The vehicle is an in-and-out airport train and runs non-stop every 30 minutes. However, this is not the transportation of choice for those in low budget as it costs double (even triple) of other buses and competing vehicles.
The cheapest public transportation to and from the Termini station is the Terravision Bus. It costs around third of that of the Leonardo Express but runs twice as long and not as frequent as the former. There are also taxis available for passengers. However, they should only take the authorized taxis, which are colored white, and with meters that can usually be found in the arrivals areas. The journey to central Rome will take 40 to 60 minutes and the fare is approximately €60 with a surcharge for public holidays and Sundays or late at night. Some taxis will charge extra for luggage, as well.
