Hi D,

The last train for Rome TE leaves FCO at 11:35 PM. I don;t think that you will make it.

A cab is about 50E.

You can book Stephano at RomeCabs and he will meet you just outside of customs and drive you to your hotel for about 45 Euros for upt to 4 people and luggage.

D-are you saying you don't think taxis are safe in Rome? Believe me, after I get through with dressing down every taxi driver in Rome that I utilize, day or night, they are pussycats-and you know what? The mayor of Rome, the very ambitious Walter Veltroni, is making sure that taxis do the right thing, and don't rip off the tourists-there is a number you can call to complain to the city if you believe you have been overcharged, however, generally speaking, they're a pretty good lot, and getting better, because the city is regulating them more.

I took cabs several times in September, and, after, like I said, telling them not to do the "fregatura" (rip-off) thing with me, them getting offended, me telling them to relax, it worked out just fine! (I speak Italian, so I can be as nasty as I wanna be!)

You'll have no problem with a taxi from FCO-it will run around 50-55 Euros. Enjoy.

They also do have a hotel shuttle service out of FCO-which is cheaper-but I don't have the particulars on it, you can get such information at the airport.

I will second the advice to use Stephano at Rome Cabs. My family and I have just returned from Rome and we used them for pick up and return to airport as well as a day tour that we 'tailored' whilst there. Great value, very good service and they are excellent value. Ian
