How to reach Rome

Rome is connected to Italian and European major cities by airplane or by train. We do not suggest to reach Rome by car or to rent a car on site. 

Rome by train

Rome is connected with the main Italian cities. You can buy train tickets to/from Roma Termini or Roma Tiburtina train station via either Trenitalia or Italo web sites. Both stations are close to Sapienza University.

Rome by plane

Rome is served by two airports: Fiumicino and Ciampino. Once arrived at one of them, you can go to Termini train station using the public transportation

  • From Fiumicino: the airport is connected to the city center through railway. Leonardo Express is a direct train from Fiumicino airport to Termini station that leaves approximately every 20 minutes; the ticket price is 14 € per person and the trip lasts 32 minutes. Alternatively, there are slower trains (8 €, 50 minutes travel) for the same trip. Both tickets are available on the Trenitalia website. Other options can be found on the Airport website.
  • From Ciampino: You can reach Termini train station either by train or bus. Please look at the Airport website for more details.

Taxis are always available at the airports. Fees are around 30 € from Ciampino and 50 € from Fiumicino plus an extra for luggage. Be careful the car has the "TAXI" sign on the roof and the license number on the doors. We suggest asking the taxi driver for the estimated fare before getting on board.
