| BEST WAY DOWNTOWN:
The airport is 19 miles (30 km) southwest of the center of Rome. There is a Rome tourist desk (EPT) outside customs with maps, brochures, and train information. There also is an EPT office in Termini Station. The airport Web site has the following:
As with many southern and eastern European cities, there will be a crowd of people soliciting to drive you into Rome. It is probably best to go to the taxi stand outside. Only use the yellow or white taxis. Make sure the meter is running, and if not, settle on a fare before you leave the airport. The fare should be about 40,000 lira ($24) including a baggage charge. Travel time will be 40 to 60 minutes to central Rome.
There are two main trains from the airport. There is a nonstop express to Termini Station, the central rail station, and the other train goes to Tiburtina Station on the east side of Rome. The train to Termini leaves hourly and takes 30 minutes. The fare is 15,000 lira ($8). Multi-stop trains run to Tiburtini from 5 A.M. to 10:30 P.M. The fare for those is about 7,000 lira ($3).
You can buy your ticket from a ticket machine, but if you have a problem go to a train information counter in the airport. From Termini station there is a good supply of taxis to take you to your final destination.
A bus runs to Tiburtina Station from 1:15 A.M. to 5 A.M. The bus stop is near the International Terminal; fare is about 7,000 lira ($4).
Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Maggiore, Sixt and others have desks at the airport, at the main rail stations, and several locations in the city.
