All roads lead to Rome. That being said, let us look at some convenient connections to and within the Eternal City.
- By plane: Two international airports serve over 40 million passengers passing through the Eternal City every year. Fiumicino (FCO), also known as the Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, and Ciampino (CIA). Both offer a wide range of connections to other cities in Europe. The Fiumicino Airport is a central hub from Southern Europe to the rest of the world and is connected with the Leonardo Express train to the main railway station (Termini – see below).
- By train: Roma Termini is the main railway station in Rome. 800 trains arrive and depart from this station carrying over 480 000 passengers on a daily basis. These numbers make Termini the largest train station in Italy. The Termini station is very close to some of the city’s top attractions located in the city center, and is well connected via public transport: metro lines A and B cross Termini and link it to the main sites in the city (see below), together with several buses and tram lines to and from all areas in the city.
- By metro: The metro in Rome consists of three lines: A (red), B (blue) and C (green). Lines A and B cross at the Termini station. The metro service operates from 5:30 am to 11:30 pm every day. On Friday and Saturday night, train circulate till 1:30 am.
