Fiumicino Airport – also known as Leonardo da Vinci Airport – is the main airport for Rome. It is located in the town of Fiumicino, about 30 kilometres (18.5 miles) from the centre of Rome. This is the airport you will arrive at when you fly with Aer Lingus.
Rome also has a second airport, Ciampino, located about 12 kilometres (around seven miles) southeast of the city centre. This airport is mainly served by low cost airlines and package tour groups.
There are several ways you can get from Leonardo da Vinci Airport to Rome's city centre. For example, the Leonardo Express train runs directly from Fiumicino to Roma Termini station, the city's main railway station. The service departs every half hour in each direction, and tickets can be purchased from the self-service machines, travel agencies, ticket desks or online. You can also take a regular, non-direct train service from the airport to Termini station.
Another option is to take the Terravision Shuttle Bus, which also links the airport to Termini station. The journey takes approximately 55 minutes, and you can either book tickets online in advance, or buy them at the Terravision desk or bus stop at the airport. Some of the low cost airlines operate their own bus services, and you can also get regular city buses from nearby Anagnina station.
Finally, you can also take the Metro train FM1 if you're heading from Fiumicino Airport to more far-flung areas such as Fara Sabina, Orte and Poggio Mirteto – although note that the Metro does not stop at Termini station. Alternately, a taxi journey from the airport to the centre of Rome takes about 20 minutes (see "Taxis", below).
