Fiumichino to Rome?YHI in Sorrento

Hi, Anyreccomend on the easiest way to get to Rome/Hotel near Termini from Fiumichino? Is the taxi expensive, if so is it worth it after 17 hours on route?

Also, Any Youth Hostelers? Sorrento? Salerno? Anyone climbed Aetna? Any remarks or suggestions? THANKS, I love your stories!! Annabelle

Train- quick inexpensive and efficient.

From memory the taxi back 2 years ago cost 30ish, but we were leaving so early in the morning it was unavoidable

Hi Annabelle - You can also contact the hotel where you will be staying, as they may be able to arrange for a car and driver to pick you up. It's definitely nice to be picked up at the airport and delivered right to your door after a long airplane ride. It's been my experience that the car and driver is usually even less than a taxi and much, much nicer. Have a wonderful time!!!

As Annabelle inquired about youth hostelers, I assume that budget is a concern. If it is (or even if it's not), Sheila is right, we found the train to be easy, quick, and inexpensive.

I've taken the train from the airport to Rome both times I flew into Rome and wouldn't do it any other way. It cost ~L13,000, much cheaper than a taxi if you are travelling on a budget. You can either buy your tickets from the automatic machines or from the agency near the tracks. I stayed at the YWCA Casa per Studentesse 5 blocks from the station toward the Colosseum. It has hostel style accommodations and double rooms. You may want to go to the forums at eurotrip.com for more hostel information.
