Airports in Rome

Leonardo da Vinci/Fiumicino International Airport – Rome’s main airport is modern, large, rather efficient, and well connected to the centre of the city by public transportation. However, late-night arrivals may limit you to an irregular bus into town unless you can afford a taxi.

Ciampino International Airport – Located to the southeast of the capital, this is the city’s low-cost airline airport, serving Easyjet, Ryanair and Wizzair flights, among others. This small airport is closer to the city centre than Fiumicino but has no direct train connection.
