Rome, Italy (IT)
Rome's Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport lies 35km south-west of the city. It's a busy airport with four terminals. Terminals 1 and 3 are connected in one building at ground-floor level and Terminal 5 is in a separate building. There is no Terminal 4.
The train station is underground, under the main terminal building.
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 32 minutes, and it leaves every 30 minutes (every 15 at busy times). 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: Terminal 1 and 3, before security, arrivals
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 and 3
Rome Airport offers some good parking services: the 'Kiss&Go' area is a well-signposted controlled traffic zone for drivers headed for Terminals 1 and 3, where you can stop free for 15 minutes. If you want to stay longer, you can add up to two half-hour periods. The QuickStop service offers free parking at the Arrivals levels of Terminals 1 and 3 for 15 minutes.
If you want to send off those postcards from Rome while waiting at Fiumicino, you’ll find the post office Poste Italiane at the airport.
Location: Terminal 1, before security, arrivals
Opening hours:08:30-15:30 Mon-Fri
There are two lost property offices at Rome Airport:
Terminal 3, before security, arrivals. Opening hours: 07:00-17:00 Mon-Fri and 07:00-15:00 Sat and Sun
Terminal 3, after security, arrivals, in the baggage claim area. Opening hours: 07:00-23:30 daily.
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.
