Leonardo Express

The station is approximately 2 kilometres from the Coliseum and 2.2 kilometres from the Trevi Fountain, so it is possibly the best station for passengers who are on a vacation in Rome.

This service runs between 06:23 and 23:23 daily for departures from the airport, and 05:35 to 20:35 from departures from Termini station. This service is guaranteed to run every day, even in the event of a strike.

Regional Trains - FL1 Line (formerly FR1)

The FL1 line is a regional railway line that is part of Lazio's regional railway network and is operated by Trenitalia. Regional lines are normally referred to as 'Regionale', so you may not see FL1 when you purchase a ticket.

A train on this line will take you from Fiumicino airport to Orte in the province of Viterbo, but it stops at Trastevere, Ostiense, Tuscolana, and Tiburtina stations in Rome. These stops are to the south or east of the city, ranging between 4 and 6 kilometres from central Rome. This is usually the best train if you are going to Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona or the Pantheon area, and it is also the cheapest train to take is you want to connect to the Metro.

This train departs the airport every 15 at peak times and every 30 minutes at any other time between 05:58 and 22:28 Monday to Saturday. On Sundays and bank holidays it operates between 06:00 and 23:00 at intervals of 30 minutes.

Price

  • A one-way ticket costs €8.00 to any station in Rome and €11.00 to go to Orte
  • Children under 4 years of age are free
  • One child between the age 4 and 12 is free with every adult ticket
  • There are no extra charges for luggage

Tips

  • If you want to get to the Termini station, take the regional train to Tiburtina or Ostiense station, and then take the Metro on line B to the Termini Metro stop. The total fare will be €9.50 (€8.00 for the region train and €1.50 for the Metro). It will be little less convenient and take longer; nonetheless, it is cheaper than taking the Leonardo Express.

Tickets can be purchased online at trenitalia.com or bought at the station.

Frecciargento

Frecciargento, which translates to 'silver arrow', is a high-speed train operated by Trenitalia and can reach speeds up to 250 km/h (160 mph). The train uses a mix of high-speed lines and region line, so on the regional line speed is be much lower.

The Frecciargento trains at Fiumicino airport can connect you with Venice, with two trains departing and two arriving every day. The trains depart the station at 11.08 and 15:08 and arrive at the station at 09:52 and 13:52.

The route taken is as follows:

  • Fiumicino Airport
  • Rome Termini
  • Rome Tiburtina
  • Florence S.M.N.
  • Bologna Centrale
  • Rovigo
  • Padova
  • Venice Mestre
  • Venice S.Lucia

Price

  • €19.00 to any Rome station, €79.90 to get to Venice
  • Children cost €40.00 each to get to Venice

Tips

  • If you are only going to Rome Termini or Rome Tiburtina stations then it's not recommended to use the Frecciargento. It still takes the same time to reach these stations as the Frecciargento runs on the regional line to Rome, but the cost will be €19.00 compared to €14.00 on the Leonardo Express to Rome Termini and €8.00 on the regional train to Rome Tiburtina.

Ticket Information

In Italy, you must validate your ticket before you board a train. You validate a ticket by getting it stamped in a yellow validation machine that you will find on the platform. This stamp will print a time and the ticket is then valid for 90 minutes, so you must board a train within this time. If you fail to validate a ticket the conductor could fine you.
