How to get to Sperlonga from Rome Airport?

by AyaSalem

Hello guys, I will be visiting Rome in august, and the first few days I will be spending in Sperlonga but I am not sure exactly how to get there? I know there is a train that runs there and I've read on a website that you take a bus into town but how do I get to the train station from the airport? details would be very helpful as this is my first time in Italy! Thank you in advance.

First, what airport are you flying into? Fiumicino or Ciampino?

If Fiumicino (the larger airport), then:
1. take the Leonardo Express (train) from the airport to Roma Termini (main train station).
2. Take a regional (i.e., local) train from Termini to Fondi-Sperlonga station.

Most trip solutions are 2 hours and 21 minutes (although some are shorter), and the fare is 17.20 euro. This seems pricey, but it's because the Leonardo Express is priced as first class (sorry).

At the airport, proceed to the train station, buy the tickets from the machine (you should be able to buy it all the way to Sperlonga), and go. If the machine doesn't work, there is a kiosk and a travel agency, as I recall. No reservations are possible, so no need to worry about it until you get there.

The train station is actually in Fondi, but it is normal that there is regular bus service (often timed to train arrivals and departures) from the train station to the other towns around. The fact that the FS (national rail system) lists this station as "Fondi-Sperlonga" tells me that this is likely the case here.

Normally, when you arrive at Fondi, you would go to the newspaper kiosk and ask for the bus to Sperlonga (kiosks often sell bus tickets in cities in Italy). The tickets probably won't be sold on the bus (but I'll go look). Even without speaking Italian, saying "bus Sperlonga?" will probably get you pointed in the right direction.

Yeah, here's the schedule for the bus to/from Fondi (note, it's for the summer of 2009, but these things won't change much).

http://www.piazzoli.it/estate_sperlonga09.pdf

The first row is departures from Fondi city center. The second row is from the train station (this is where you will get on). The third row is departures from Sperlonga back to Fondi and the train station.

The notes at the bottom say, among other things, the ticket is 1 euro (note that this may change, of course, being last year's schedule), and that the ticket offices are two tobacco stores (tabachi) in the city center (probably near the stop in the city center). Hmmmn, it is unlikely that you'd have to go from the train station over to the city center (more than half a mile) to buy the tickets; I bet you can buy them at the station...oh, wait, it says also "Emissione biglietti in vettura" (ticket issuance on the bus)...so you're OK...

Bill! Thank you sooo much! I could not have asked for better more detailed information! I really appreciate it!

Travel Tips for Rome

only Ruins??

by suubi

Having acquired a city map, you urgently need to make a tour plan locating the position of sights as well as the most convenient way of touring them. Since every stone in Rome has an interesting story behind it, nearly all sights are worth a visit. On the one side you have religious Rome depicted in Vatican with its associated Basilicas and on the other hand you have the historical part of the city, and its customs. The coexistence of history, architecture, religion, art and everyday life is very thrilling and its what makes Rome.

Who's next? - drink water from Rome fountains.....

by icunme

You will see people drinking water from the street faucets all over Rome - blocking the main spiggot so that water spurts out from the hole on top. We caught this little scene today in Villa Borghese near the Goethe sculpture.

A Supermarket in the Historical Center!

by Lacristina about Supermercato "Di Meglio"

It's not easy to find a full line supermarket/grocery store in Rome, but there is one. Supermercato "Di Meglio." It has everything including cleaning supplies, pasta, canned goods, wine, fresh meat, etc. It's open from 9 am to 10 pm, Sundays, too.

The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it's huge! Much larger than it appears. Anything. Everything. Not cheap, but full-line supermarket/grocery stores are hard to come by in Rome.

feet, bus, metro

by vysnaite

the best and the most pleasant way to explore Rome is by feet (you won't say that after 9 hours of walking, yet, I still think it's the best one! :)). To the further parts of Rome like Trastevere you can use Metro. You can use it also to get to Vatican. Also busses are good option if for some reasons you don't trust your feet.. but, you'd lose a lot without exploring it step by step!

Metro is very comfortable and easy to use. You can buy different tickets: valid for one time, one day, three days. metro ticket is valid also on all the busses in Rome.

The Best Ice Cream, Gelato, Whatever! Its Awesome!

by Jmill42 about Il Gelato di San Crispino

Everyone told me that Il Gelato di San Crispino has the best ice cream in Rome and maybe the world. The owner apparently is the most obsessive frosty fanatic, this side of the nuthouse. But, it really doesn't matter to me, as long as the gelati keeps flowing. Available flavors differ with the seasons, and you can't get a cone here, but who cares, right?

I've since learned that there is another branch away from the chaos of the Trevi Fountain area. It is located
