All roads lead to Rome!

Rome is by far the best connected city in Italy and therefore very easy to reach from all the cities of the world.
Thanks to an innumerable number of connections, including motorways, 2 airports, several bus routes and rail links, and finally also the sea ports of Ostia and Civitavecchia.


    Rome has 2 international airports – Fiumicino and Ciampino, which serve more than 45 million passengers a year, making Rome the Italian city with the most air traffic.

    Both airports operate international airlines, thus offering flights to most countries in the world.

    Rome Fiumicino Airport (FCO) – official name: Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport- is Rome’s main airport, located about 35 km from the city center. Is one of the largest international airports in the world and in 2018 served more than 43 million passengers.

    FCO reaches more than 200 destinations worldwide (of which 55 are Long Haul destinations). More than 100 airlines depart from FCO.

    It is the main hub for ITA, but also has flights with many low-cost airlines such as EasyJet, Ryanair, Vueling and many others.

    FCO is well connected to the city of Rome, and you can get there easily by train or bus. The most used means of transport to and from the airports in Rome is the Airport Shuttle Bus because it is the fastest and cheapest option for passengers.

    Rome Ciampino Airport (CIA) – official name: Giovan Battista Pastine International Airport- is the smaller of Rome’s two international airports, but is located about 13 km southeast of the city center, thus being the closest airport to the city.

    In 2018, Ciampino served just under 6 million passengers, offering flights from low-cost airlines such as Ryanair and Wizz Air.

    Like Fiumicino, Ciampino has excellent connections to Rome, so passengers can use public transport or airport transfers to reach the historic centre of Rome.


    Located in the center of the peninsula, Rome is also the main railway hub of Central Italy, connected by high-speed lines. The most important railway stations in the city are Roma Termini and Roma Tiburtina.

    The Roma Termini Station, which covers an area of 225,000 square meters, is the main station in the eternal city. This primacy is given to it by its seniority (it has been in use since 1863), by being located in the historic center and by being the busiest in the whole of Italy (and the fifth busiest in the whole of Europe). An enormous number of passengers pass through Roma Termini on its 23 gates: 150 million visitors per year (an average of 420,000 per day).

    Roma Termini is the city’s central station also because all major public transport services depart from here (regional trains, the metro, trams, buses and trolleybuses), not to mention private transport (taxis and shuttle services to Ciampino and Fiumicino airports).

    Not much older than Termini, Roma Tiburtina (opened in 1866) is the city’s other major railway hub. The Tiburtina station is the sixth railway line nationwide. All long-distance trains that do not stop at Termini and connect northern and southern Italy stop here. Tiburtina is home to a key station of bus lines that allow you to reach many destinations, both national and international.

    From Termini Station, an interchange with the two main metro lines (A and B).

    From Tiburtina Station, where there is an interchange with metro line B.

    Both stations are connected with numerous bus lines for all directions, taxis, and car rental services with or without driver.

    For information on train tickets and timetables, consult the Trenitalia website.

    If you are coming:

    • from the north, you will be on the A1 Milan-Rome;
    • from the west, on the Aurelia or the A12 Rome-Civitavecchia;
    • from the east, on the A24 Rome-L’Aquila;
    • from the south, on the A1 Rome-Naples.

    In any case, whichever way you arrive, you must opt for the G.R.A. (Grande Raccordo Anulare) junction, which is connected to all the main arteries leading to the centre of Rome.
