Leonardo da Vinci – Fiumicino Airport - FCO

Rome, Italy (IT)

Getting around the airport

Four terminals, with shuttle bus to Terminal 5

Rome's Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport lies 35km south-west of the city. It's a busy airport with four terminals. Terminals 1, 2 and 3 are connected in one building at ground-floor level and Terminal 5 is in a separate building. There is no Terminal 4.

  • Terminal 1, contains B gates
  • Terminal 2, contains C gates, serves low-cost airlines
  • Terminal 3, contains D and H gates, serves long-haul flights
  • Terminal 5, contains G gates, serves the US and Israeli airlines

The train station is underground, under the main terminal building.

Shuttle bus

To get to Terminal 5, take the free shuttle bus from Terminal 3. There are also some satellite gates in Terminal 5, outside the main building, for which you'll also need to take a shuttle bus.

Getting into Rome

Take the express train


The Leonardo Express train goes non-stop from the airport to central Termini Station and is really the only way to get into the city. Journey time is 31 minutes, and it leaves every 30 minutes (every 15 at busy times) from 06:36-23.36. Tip: Your train ticket can be used to get a discount on the Fast Track service and into VIP lounges in the airport. 

Watch out: Don't forget to validate your ticket on the platform, otherwise, you could be fined. (You can also take the cheaper suburban train, FL1, but you will have to change to a Metro or tram to get to the central areas. If you're going to Florence, however, this is the best option. Take the train to Tiburtina Station and change.) 

Cost: EUR 14 one-way
Buying tickets: Machines on the platforms (skip the ticket machine on the way which can have long queues)
Location: Under the main terminal building, just follow the signs from Level 2


If you would still like the comfort of a taxi, you can always choose to pay the fixed price fare into Rome. This can work out cheaper if there's a large group of you.

To get this price, make sure you take a taxi licensed by the Comune di Roma. They are white Fiats with SPQR, a license number and the fixed price written on the doors. Others may use a meter and may be more expensive. 

Cost: EUR 48 into the city center for up to four passengers and luggage (no need to tip)
Location: Ranks outside Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 5 


A cheaper, but slower option to get into Rome's Termini Station is by Terravision coach. Buses run from 05:35-23:00 and journey time is 45-50 minutes.

Cost: EUR 4 one-way/EUR 8 return (under-fives free)
Buying tickets: On the coach
Location: Outside Terminal 3

Early morning flight

Head for Terminal 3

Got a flight in the middle of the night or early morning and want to avoid travelling into Rome? Terminal 3 is your best option. Other terminals close around midnight and are often full of mosquitoes. But Terminal 3 is safe and clean, has flights moving through all the time, and a wide choice of cafés, toilets and decent seating with power. Terminals 1, 2 and 3 are all within 10-15 minutes’ walk of one another; Terminal 5 is more isolated, and you’ll need to take a 5-minute shuttle bus ride to get there.
