Spotlight On Rome’s Fiumicino Airport

June 30, 2011 Carlino's Restaurant no comments

Rome, The Eternal City

They call it the Eternal City. From the Vatican to the Colosseum, Rome’s been the center of Western civilization and religion for over 2,000 years. Planning a Rome vacation is the dream of a lifetime. Carlino’s newsletter will provide answers to all your questions and help you plan the trip of your dreams.

Arriving in Rome

Rome’s principal airport, located 20 miles from the Rome city center, is called the Leonardo da Vinci Airport. Many still refer to it by its old name Fiumicino. All international flights to Rome land here. It takes about 45 minutes to travel from here to the city of Rome by taxi and the fare costs 40-50 Euros. Many insiders beat the traffic and pay 8 Euros to take the train service directly from the airport to Rome because it’s a faster and less costly alternative.

If you decide to splurge on a taxi, be sure to go for the reliability of using the official yellow and white licensed cabs available from the taxi stands rather than take a chance on a cheap fare offered by illegal taxi services.
