Hot to reach Rome's center from the airport

Rome city center

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.

Where to sleep in Rome if you seek luxury

Where to sleep in Roma, Monti

The historic centre of Rome, with its iconic monuments and picturesque streets, is the perfect area if you are looking for luxury. Here you will find some of the city's most prestigious hotels.

We would like to point out a few areas that you might consider for your stay in Rome.

The historical centre of Rome is a priceless treasure, and two of its most precious gems are undoubtedly Via Veneto and Trinità dei Monti. Via Veneto, made famous by Federico Fellini's 'Dolce Vita', is an elegant avenue steeped in history, lined with historic cafés such as Caffè de Paris and Harry's Bar, where you can enjoy a coffee while admiring the refined architecture of the surrounding buildings. A few steps away, the church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini houses the macabre and fascinating Crypt of the Capuchins, a unique site. Walking up towards Trinità dei Monti, you can admire one of the most impressive views of Rome from the Spanish Steps, dominated by the magnificent Trinità dei Monti Church. From here, the view sweeps over the entire city, offering unforgettable glimpses, especially at sunset. Not far away, Villa Medici, seat of the Academy of France, offers enchanting gardens and a privileged perspective on the eternal city. Walking along these streets, every corner tells a story, every building preserves a piece of Roman history, making Via Veneto and Trinità dei Monti essential stops for anyone visiting the capital.

Another place to consider where to sleep in Rome is the Aventine Hill. One of the seven hills on which Rome was founded, it is an area that combines history, spirituality and breathtaking views. Located south of the historical centre, between the Tiber and the Circus Maximus, the Aventine is an oasis of tranquillity and beauty that offers an ideal excursion away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This hill, once the site of aristocratic Roman residences, is now home to some of Rome's oldest and most impressive churches, such as the Basilica of Santa Sabina, with its splendid 5th-century wooden portal. Another jewel of the Aventine is the Giardino degli Aranci (Savello Park), an enchanting place where you can enjoy a panoramic view over the Tiber and much of the city, particularly fascinating at sunset. One cannot miss the famous 'keyhole' of the Priory of the Knights of Malta, through which one can admire a perfect shot of St. Peter's dome, a unique and magical experience

Also nearby is the Municipal Rose Garden of Rome, with a vast collection of roses from all over the world, and the Circus Maximus, the ancient Roman stadium that once hosted chariot races. The history of the Aventine is rich and fascinating: this hill was the scene of important events in ancient Rome and, even today, walking through its streets and gardens means being immersed in an atmosphere suspended between past and present. The Aventine is therefore an unmissable stop for those who wish to discover the more serene and contemplative side of the eternal city
