Fiumicino Airport to Rome Termini Station Area Cheaper Alternatives

Jump to last reply

Would you like to find a cheaper way to travel between the Rome Termini Station Area and Fiumicino Airport (FCO) other than by taking the expensive (14 Euros) Leonardo da Vinci airporter train from Termini Station itself?

Consider taking the airporter bus to FCO Terminal 3 (International Departures), from the bus stop at Via Marsala 5, close to the intersection with Via Solferino, approximately 250 meters from the front entrance to the Rome Termini Train Station.

Bus departures from Via Marsala to Fiumicino Airport (at hourly or better intervals) start at 5:00 a.m., while return buses from Fiumicino Airport start at 8:30 a.m. Travel time depends on time of day, but averages about one hour (compared to 30 minutes on the non-stop airporter train, which runs every 30 minutes). Travel time on the bus is slightly longer during rush hour.

The SIT airporter bus makes one intermediate stop at Piazza Cavour 33, near the Castel Sant'Angelo on the West Bank of the Tiber River (useful for hotels near the Vatican).

You can buy the 8-Euro ticket from the bus driver.

The airporter bus to and from Via Marsala is particularly useful for tourists who are staying overnight in Rome and not immediately connecting to or from the train (to or from other destinations in Italy). There are scores of hotels within walking distance of Via Marsala and the Rome Termini Train Station, as well as public transportation (bus and metro) to all parts of Rome.

Remember too that there is a second airporter train from Fiumicino Airport (not to be confused with the non-stop train to Termini Station), which also costs 8 Euros and stops at Roma Trastevere, Ostiense and Tiburtina Stations. Frequency is every 15 minutes (every 30 minutes on Sundays). This train is much less useful for tourists, although the stops at Ostiense and Tiburtina connect with the Rome metro system, and the stop at Trastevere is useful for a few hotels in that neighborhood.

The airporter train schedules can be found on the Trenitalia website.

There are also night airporter buses:

Finally, there are also buses between Fiumicino Airport and both the "A" and "B" metro lines:
