Hot to reach Rome's center from the airport
If you travel by plane you will probably land at Rome Fiumicino airport. From here, reaching the center is easy. The Leonardo Express train leaves every fifteen minutes and in half an hour takes you to the main station, Roma Termini, for a cost of €15. Here you will find metro, buses and taxis to reach every other part of the city. It takes twice as long, but costs about half the price, the regional train to and from Roma Ostiense station.
The connection from the second airport, Rome Ciampino, is faster and cheaper, but it is not direct. A shuttle connects the airport to Ciampino city, from where you can reach the center by regional train. The journey takes about thirty minutes in total.
In both cases, a taxi ride from the airport to the center costs around €50 and takes more or less an hour from Fiumicino, half an hour from Ciampino.

The archaeological complex that includes the Colosseum and the Imperial Forums may seem an obvious choice, yet the magic of these ruins is truly unrivaled.
St. Peter's Square, with the awesome colonnade, the huge church and the famous dome that defines the skyline of the entire city, and the Vatican Museums is among the greatest expressions of Italian art. Not to be missed.
The Spanish Steps attract tourists from all over the world. It acts as a backdrop to one of the many fountains in Rome, fondly called Barcaccia, a very famous artwork by Bernini. The scenographic effect here is always guaranteed.
The Trevi Fountain needs no introduction, always very crowded and yet wonderful, imposing and romantic.
Last but not least, Piazza Navona, with its particular very elongated rectangular shape, is among the most famous in Rome. It stands on the ancient Domitian Stadium but in its current appearance it is an immense Baroque masterpiece.
