Lazio (Latium) is the region of Italy that includes Rome. Latium has many more attractions though, which might enjoy more international attention if they were in another region and certainly deserve it. It makes for a good combination trip with Rome though.

Getting There

By Plane

1. Rome Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport (FCO) is located 26 kilometres south-west of the centre and is the city's primary international air hub. It is the busiest airport in Italy and in the top 30 worldwide and is the home of the national airline Alitalia. Dozens of airlines serve Rome, with some main destinations being New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Kuala Lumpur, Moscow, London, Paris, Tel Aviv, Toronto, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Miami, Istanbul, Sao Paulo, Bangkok and Buenos Aires. Easyjet has some budget flights as well to Fiumicino.

To/from the airport

  • The airport is connected by train to the Termini station. Check Italy's national railway carrier Ferrovie dello Stato (FS) for more information about schedules and prices. The trip takes 30 minutes (no stops) to Termini Station in Rome - there are two such connections per hour. Alternatively, local trains leave once every 15 minutes, stopping at all stations. Passengers may have to change at Trastevere, Ostiense (Metro Piramide) or Tuscolana
  • The airport is well served by the 6-lane motorway A91 Roma-Fiumicino and numerous buses and taxis travel between Rome and the airport.

2. Rome Ciampino Airport (CIA) is the city's second airport, located about 15 kilometres southeast of central Rome. It provides charter flights and regional European flights. Budget airlines, including Ryanair and Easyjet use Ciampino Airport.

Buses from either Terravision or Bus Shuttle bring you to the Termini station in around 40 minutes. The costs are €4 for a one way ticket. Tickets can be bought on the right when you exited the restricted area at the airport. By taxi a ride costs around €30.
