Getting into Rome city center
Rome’s public transport is easy to use and mostly offers value for money. The most expensive option, but also the most convenient, is to use the Leonardo Express. Approximately $20 for a one-way ticket, you’ll be taken from Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci Airport to Roma Termini (the city’s main train station) within 32 minutes.
The Rome Airport Bus costs approximately $5 follows an hourly route and travels from the airport to three separate stops in the city. These are:
● Piazza dei Cinquecento (in front of Termini Station)
● Cornelia Station to connect with underground line A
● EUR-Magliana Station to connect with underground line B
If you’d prefer to travel privately, ask your hotel or accommodation provider to recommend a reputable taxi company. Although there is tough competition among taxi companies to offer good value to tourists, you still run the risk of some unscrupulous characters trying to chance their luck.
But once you’re in Rome, you’ll be able to get around on our coaches for some of our tours and on foot for others. Life is beautiful!
