So you’ve finally booked that ticket to Rome. Took the plane and landed safely in Leonardo da Vinci International Airpot.  Otherwise known as   Fumicino Airport is located at  approximately 35km or 21 miles from Rome’s  city center. How do you get into the city center?  Here   are few ways to reach the historical center.

took this photo aboard the FL1 line in Fumicino train terminal. Leonardo Express and FL1 trains
share the same station and platforms.

 This is a direct train from the airport to the Roma Termini, the main train station and costs 14 euro one way for around 30 minutes journey.  Train departs every 15 minutes (30 minutes at some hour of the day) from  Roma Termini at 5:35 AM to 20:35 PM  while from Fumicino is 6:23 AM to 23:23 PM. In case of strike, bus services will be available. Children under the age of 4 can ride for free. Also  children between the age of 4 to 12 but must be accompanied by one paying adult.
