Normally, those that simply want to enjoy their holiday in Rome, don't want to have any worries of any kind. That's why it's good to choose the Fiumicino Airport Taxi service to experience some unforgettable days. Rome is nicknamed the eternal city and is the Italian capital as well as being the most populated municipality in the Boot with around 2,900,000 inhabitants.
With a history spanning more than a millennium, you would need years to visit everything. The capital is practically an open-air museum with its many monuments. But Rome is much more than that, it's enough to think about the famous neighbourhoods (such as Trastévere or the Jewish Quarter), the beaches of the nearby Ostia, as well as the recent urban developments since entering into the EUR. Also, Rome offers a wide variety of tourist attractions for everyone's liking.
We have put together a limited list of some of the many places of interest:
- The Colosseum, symbol of the city and one of the most famous monuments in the world as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To get to this wonder by car from the airport you need 40 minutes via the A91 road in order to cover 31km.
- The Pantheon, the famous pagan temple which nowadays holds the Italian kings' tombs and the painter Rafael, is approximately 30km from Fiumicino, which can be reached in 35 minutes (providing there is limited traffic).
- The Vatican Museums, with their never ending halls and priceless collections of art every year, are visited by around 18 million people. From Fiumicino airport, taking the A91, it's possible to arrive in approximately half an hour covering 30km.
Fiumicino International Airport, in fact, is called Leorardo Da Vinci, and is situated in the municipality of Fiumicino, around 30 km from the centre of Rome. Those who have a trip to the capital in their plans can get there with one of the many flights that land at its most famous airport. Just think that 105 airline companies from around the world operate in Fiumicino and that the Roman airport is the headquarters of Alitalia and low cost Spanish company, Vueling.
As well as offering the normal services of a large airport such as this, Fiumicino gives you more. We are talking about the services specifically for families such as a parking areas for mothers (pink parking), play areas, children's trolleys and restaurants with dedicated menus for even the smallest.
How to get from Fiumicino airport to the city centre
The Leonardo da Vinci Airport is very well connected to the centre of Rome, giving you easy access by train as well as bus.
In the first case, the train is the fastest, the Leonardo Express bridges the gap between the airport and the Termini station. It takes only 35 minutes to arrive at the destination given that it is a fast train with no stops. The only disadvantage to this method of transport is the price of a ticket at around 14 euros per person (prices subject to change).
Also, you have to take into account that once you reach the terminal station, it's necessary to take another form of transport which in any case may not stop in front of your accommodation. However, the buses are much more economical with a price which fluctuates between 4 and 8 euros (prices subject to change) although it takes approximately one hour. There are 5 companies which transfer visitors from the airport to Rome and it's necessary to take other means of transport in the end because they are not going to drop you off in front of your hotel unlike a private taxi.
Alternatively, it's possible to queue for a public taxi (white) at the taxi rank at the airport. However, without knowing the price beforehand, the service is subject to a taxi meter and therefore you run the risk of finding dishonest drivers who lengthen the journey and increase the final price as a consequence.
Our advice is to pay close attention to the type of vehicle. In fact, there are many unofficial taxis (excessive prices) that can be identified easily since they don't hold the Comune di Roma (Municipality of Rome) label and the licence number on the side door.
