How to get to Rome from Ciampino airport

Rome Airport Bus

The Rome Airport Bus (formerly known as Schiaffini bus) connects Ciampino Airport with Termini train station in a non-stop ride of 40 minutes.

In our opinion, the Rome Airport Bus has no outstanding benefits. Terravision, on the other hand, offers better service and is more budget-friendly.
