Overview of Fiumicino Airport bus services to Rome city centre

Rome Fiumicino Airport is Rome's main airport found west of Rome close to the coast. The money no object airport transfer between Fiumicino Airport and Rome city centre is the dedicated Leonardo Express Airport Train. This non-stop train runs every 30 minutes taking around 30 minutes for the entire journey.

The rail terminus in Rome is Termini Station, the main public transport hub for Rome and also a major accommodation district.

However if you are on a budget there are much cheaper budget airport bus alternatives with fares a fraction of the cost of the Leonardo Express.

At Rome Fiumicino the buses start from a small bus station to the west of Terminal 3. All the terminals at Fiumicino are joined together so you do not go outside until you reach the bus station.

The buses are well signed by the airport authority and Terravision also supplement this with their own advertising banners scattered around the terminals.

Calling the series of bus bays a bus station is a bit wide of the mark. There are no facilities here as yet, (not even seats) just a series of bus bays where different companies have been allocated a bus bay for their service. If you need toilets or something to eat you need to go back into the passenger terminals. The area is undercover though.

It is here that all the charter buses load their passengers too.
