Depending on your holiday budget you can opt for the Rome airport transfers options that best fit your need.
Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) Airport Transfers
Although Fiumicino is a large airport, all passengers terminals are clustered together. This means that all public transportation leaves from one central point and not from each terminal. You can take both the bus or the train, which will get you to the Termini Station in the centre of Rome, taxis or hotel shuttles.

If you choose to take the train, you have the Leonardo Express Airport Train, which is the fastest way to get to the centre of the city.

The one-way ticket for an adult is €14, and it is free for children under 12.
Airport Bus Services
If you want a cheaper transportation option, you can choose the Terravision bus. You can also order on-line the departure time which fits your needs and you can also reserve a seat.

Taxi, Private Cars and Hotel Shuttles
If you do not travel on a strict budget you have other options such as taxis, hotel shuttles or private vehicles.
