Roma offers an extraordinary number of transport connections. The capital can be reached using airports, train stations and motorways. All these options guarantee that the city can be reached quickly and efficiently. The city has three metro lines, plus tram and public bus routes.
FIUMICINO AND CIAMPINO AIRPORTS
Roma has Italy’s main airport system with its two airports. Fiumicino – “Leonardo da Vinci” is 26 km from the city centre. Ciampino – “Giovan Battista Pastine” is about 20 km from the city centre. These are both connected to the city via train, subway and bus. In 2016, they welcomed over 47 million passengers. More than 230 destinations can be reached worldwide thanks to the 100 airlines operating in the two airports. “Leonardo da Vinci” airport’s capacity to handle travellers to and from non-Schengen countries has been doubled with the recent opening of the new Terminal E. There are 14 new gates and a major shopping gallery with a glass roof, 40 retail shops and a piazza entirely dedicated to Made in Italy products. In addition to great Italian fashion brands, there are also 10 restaurants offering guaranteed quality with the presence of starred chefs such as Heinz Beck. These chefs know how best to combine haute cuisine with the need for speedy airport catering. The area covers 90 thousand square metres and can accommodate up to 6 million additional passengers every year. The total investment was 390 million euros.
It is expected that by 2044 it will be able to accommodate double today’s numbers.
The centre of Roma can be reached quickly from Fiumicino Airport using Trenitalia’s rail services. The Leonardo Express located within the airport is a nonstop service dedicated exclusively to transporting airport passengers to/from the Roma Termini train station. There are departures every 15 minutes and it is a journey time of 30 minutes.
