The Ciampino Airlink is a relatively new service offered by Trenitalia in cooperation with the bus company ATRAL. It offers a bus and regional train connection between Ciampino Airport and Termini (in central Rome).
The biggest advantage of this service is the favorable price of only €2.70. The travel time is about 50 minutes, slightly longer than by bus.
Ciampino Airlink is a great way to reach Termini from Ciampino Airport. However, take into account the double waiting times (at the bus stop and on the train platform) and in case you have a lot of luggage, it might not be the most convenient option.
As mentioned earlier, you must first take a bus to Ciampino train station, a 10-minute ride. Once at the station, you need to transfer to a regional train that will take you to Termini. This journey takes 30 minutes.

ATRAL buses have regular departure times between 20 and 40 minutes, with a total of 44 departures throughout the day. The first is at 05:50 am and the last at 11:30 pm.
The schedules of regional trains change frequently, so it’s not practical to list them here.
You can check the specific timetable for your day of arrival directly on the Trenitalia website . Make sure to enter “Ciampino Aeroporto” as your departure point and “Roma Termini” as your destination to get the correct information.
There are no restrictions regarding the number of pieces of luggage that can be carried on Ciampino Airlink buses and Trenitalia regional trains. However, it’s recommended to use this service only when traveling with hand luggage.
Location of the bus stop
The stop for the ATRAL buses is number 4, just outside the terminal. The airport is small and when you leave it, the bus stops are the first thing you see.
Ciampino train station is about 4 km from the airport.
