How to go from Ciampino to the center of Rome?

Giovan Battista Pastine airport (GB Pastine), known as Ciampino, is a kind of ‘secondary’ airport in Rome (the main Rome airport is Fiumicino), that is: the largest number of flights arriving there are national, others, international (always from within Europe), they are low cost, which makes the airport very busy reaching 5 million passengers every year. Even it is out of the way here you will know how to get from Ciampino to the center of Rome. Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

About the Airport

The airport was built in 1916 and was formerly a military airport. Since Fiumicino was unable to receive ALL the flights arriving in Roma, Ciampino was authorized to operate as a civilian airport. The airport is not far from the city of Rome, but it is totally out of the way! Today we will teach you how to go from Ciampino Airport to the center of Rome. Today there are many options to reach the center of Rome from Ciampino Airport, here are the main options.

1) How to go from Ciampino to the center of Rome? WITH PRIVATE TRANSFER

Before you travel, make your Transfer reservation so you don’t have any worries, as the driver will already be there waiting for you with a sign. This way you won’t have to think about anything else, just to go calmly and safely to your hotel. The best way to reach the center of Rome or even your hotel is by transfer.

Entering our link “Transfer Service”, you can get more information about this option. It is safe, comfortable and an excellent cost benefit! This way, you avoid the exchange of transport to get to the hotel, since the transfer is direct! Non stop!

The driver speaks English (booking in advance)! Not to mention that it makes your life much easier when it comes to bags. Can you imagine carrying suitcases on other transports? Well, it is not easy, but neither is it impossible. It’s just not comfortable for those who are traveling to relax 😉

Advantages

  • It is certainly the least stressful option. Nothing better than arriving after a long trip and finding a person waiting for you to take you to the hotel without wasting a lot of time, with a comfortable, clean car and a nice driver with a friendly smile, and always available to help. If you book in advance, he will speak ENGLISH! “Transfer Service“. Also read: How to get around Rome?“.

Disadvantages

  • In comparison with the other means of transport that will be presented here, there is no way to compare, because just knowing that your tranquility, safety and satisfaction will be guaranteed, I certainly say that the service paid is worth it. With Transfer you will not have to worry about consulting maps, nor be afraid to make “wrong” choices regarding the means of transport!

2) How to go from Ciampino to the center of Rome? WITH TAXI

The good thing about Rome is that some prices, especially for taxis leaving airports, are fixed. To get to the city center from Ciampino, the taxi costs 30 euros with luggage already included.

Advantages

  • From 2 people on, taking a taxi can be worthy, but be careful that the taxi driver does not give you a “fatigue” and runs more than necessary. Once he realizes that you are a tourist and you have no idea where you are going he can mislead you (just like they do in others cities such as Buenos Aires, London or New York, for example). Remember that the fare from the Airport to the Center is FIXED!

Disadvantages

  • Finding the right, fair and honest taxi driver is a truly mission! From 4 people it is not worthwhile to use a taxi, it is more expensive than hiring a Transfer. Because more than 4 people would require two cars or more.

Attention

  • Be careful when taking a taxi that is not from the city of Rome and DO NOT TAKE an unregistered taxi, besides being more expensive, it is very dangerous! Be careful ,ok?!

3) How to go from Ciampino to the center of Rome? BY BUS

The best way to save! There are some bus companies that run the Ciampino / Termini section, which is the central train station in Rome, which are:

  • Cotral: it is the company that also takes you to the Ciampino train station, 5 minutes from the Arrivals area. If you prefer, go to the Anagnina metro station, also nearby. The ticket to Termini costs 3.90 euros and the trip also takes approximately 40 minutes
  • Sitbusshuttle: another option that goes straight to Termini. It is possible to buy the ticket online, it costs 4 Euros, and the trip also takes 40 minutes.

Terravision: it operates a direct bus from Ciampino Airport and takes you to Termini Station. The departures are synchronized with the departures and arrivals of the flights and the ticket costs 4 Euros. The travel time is also about 40 minutes. Book now through the banner below:

4) How to go from Ciampino to the center of Rome? SHARED TRANSFER

If you would like to have a driver but at the same time you would like to save, another option is to do the service with a shared transfer. The price is very good and that way you will always be left directly at the hotel! The price is 19 euros per person!

Advantages

  • This Shared Transfer option is only advantageous for one person, as the cost for two people would already be almost the price of a Transfer, which will compensate much more in comfort and convenience.

Disadvantages

  • You must be on time at the meeting point of the company, and you must not miss the scheduled time. And the value does not worth for more than one person.

5) How to go from Ciampino to the center of Rome? RENT A CAR

We also have the option of renting a car. If you leave your house decided to travel by car in Italy, it is another good option, since you also already leave with the reservation made online). It’s possible? Yes, it is possible. By car from Ciampino Airport to the Center, the trip takes half an hour.

Advantages

  • When you disembark at the Airport, you will go straight to the space of the Car Rental companies to pick up your vehicle with the Voucher. By car you have the freedom to come and go at any time you want and also the ease of carrying your bags (depending on the size and number of bags and the type of vehicle rented).

Disadvantages

  • The car will only be worth it if you go to cities other than Rome. To travel only in Rome is not worth it, as there is the Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL). I remind you that Rome is a city with many (and great!) public transport options and many paths can be done walking. Also consider that by renting a car you will have to spend on fuel and parking.

6) How to go from Ciampino to the center of Rome? BY TRAIN

Another economical and comfortable option. Take the train at Ciampino Città, which is 5 minutes from the airport; the company responsible for the bus journey is Cotral or the local company Atral. It costs 1 Euro and, from there, take the train to Termini Station. The journey, by train between the two stations takes 15 minutes and the ticket costs 1.50 euros. Also read: Do I need to validate the train ticket in Italy?

Advantages

  • The advantage of taking a train is the speed, as it does not get stuck in traffic jams. And it is also a very good price, so you can save not only time, but also money.

Disadvantages

  • Think of tiredness and bags. If you have a lot of bags to carry it is really not worth taking the train.

Hotel I suggest near the Historic Center

If you are passionate about art and would like to stay in the center where you can move around walking, as well as having countless possibilities for places to have lunch / dinner or a snack, I advise you to stay in the historic center. Regions near the Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forum and the Villa Borghese, Piazza Spagna and Piazza Navona can be considered as “historic center”. These are the most expensive areas, but you will be close to everything, literally!

If you want to save a great option is the B&B, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices.

If you prefer a good hotel, I have three options that I really like, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices;)

Hotels that I suggest near the San Giovanni Region

For those who want to find cheaper alternatives in quiet areas, but at the same time close to the means of transport to the center, I suggest the region of San Giovanni or Monti (near the metro stations San Giovanni, Castro Pretorio and Circus Massimo) – which it is a more residential neighborhood; therefore, more economical and quiet! And with just 15 minutes by subway you will be in the center too!

Hotel I suggest near Termini Station

Hotels that I suggest in Trastevere

For those who prefer to “taste” authentic and characteristic Rome, there is nothing better than booking a hotel in Trastevere (on the outskirts of the city’s historic river), full of typical Roman history and traditions, known for the tortuous streets of sampietrini stones and the centers medieval style housing.

The neighborhood is in the historic center and to the right of the Tevere River, in the midst of a spectacular landscape, where each visitor can observe the countless churches and squares (such as Santa Maria in Trastevere). In addition, this neighborhood offers several local restaurants and canteens for those who want to try typical Roman cuisine.
