How to Get to Rome from Fiumicino Airport

Regional train FL1

Never leave accommodation to the last minute

Hotels and apartments in Rome all get booked pretty fast. If you wait too long you're gonna miss out on the good ones. Book now to save yourself money and stress.

If your final destination in Rome is not in the Termini Station area, then the FL1 regional train may be your best option. We recommend this option, however, only if your destination is near a stop on this line.

As with the Leonardo Express service, no ticket or pass for public transportation in Rome is valid for travel from Fiumicino Airport on the FL1. Likewise, the FL1 ticket from this terminal is not valid for public transportation either.

  • Children under 4 years old
  • Children between the ages of 4 and 12 (one child per adult)
