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.
The most popular airport bus transfer between Fiumicino Airport and Rome city centre measured by passengers carried is the Terravision airport bus service. But Terravision airport bus services do not have a monopoly.
At the moment there are four services competing against each other offering services to Rome City Centre.
Just like the train, the main terminus for the bus services in Rome City Centre is Termini Station, the main transport hub for Rome where the main train, metro and local bus stations are situated.
Some Fiumicino Airport bus services are not direct and offer interim stops.
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.
At Termini Station, the four bus services have stops in the streets surrounding Termini Station.
The only bus company that has a proper ticket office and waiting area is Terravision which has a Terracafe shop where you can also get snacks, coffee etc. All other bus companies just have a bus stop on the street.
Terravision and SIT are on the east side of the station by the main exit to Via Marsala, which is the street that runs down the eastern side of the station.
T.A.M and Atral have stops on the road that runs down the western side of Termini Station, Via Giolitti.
If you order online, you select an individual departure time which reserves you a seat on the bus. If for any reason you miss the bus you booked the ticket is still valid for a later departure.
