How to get to Rome from Ciampino airport

Terravision bus

If you want to avoid complex transfers between city buses or the high prices of cabs, Terravision buses are the perfect solution. They allow you to reach the Termini train station in a non-stop ride of 40 minutes.

Other bus operators offer similar services but Terravision is the most recommended. This company specializes in transfers to and from airports throughout Europe and due to its large volume of travelers can offer the lowest prices.

Consider Terravision buses even if your final destination is not in the city center. Since Termini is the major connection point of the city, you can easily reach any other area from there by metro or city buses.

Moreover, when traveling with Terravision buses, it’s possible to spot some sights on the way to Termini. Therefore, if possible, choose a seat on the left side of the bus. This way, you can get a better view of the archaeological remains of the Villa dei Quintili (a few minutes after the start of the journey), the Basilica of St. John Lateran, and the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore (both near the Termini station).
