Transport from Fiumicino to Ariccia

by captainpete

I'm flying into Fiumicino airport but I need to get to the town of Ariccia. Its a couple of kms south of Albano Laziale. I know I can catch the express from the airport into Rome and a FR4 train to Albano. My questions are :
1. How often do the trains run out to Albano Laziale ?
2. How hard/or possible to get a taxi from Albano to Ariccia ?
3. Is it 'safe' and just easier to get a taxi from Fiumicino to Ariccia, Given I need to catch 2 trains + taxi anyway ?

If I could have I would have flown into Ciampino instead, but I can't find any flights from Venice's Marco Polo airport.

I have since found that there is a train every hour on the Saturday afternoon I'll be travelling from Fiumicno to Albano. I found this on the Trenitalia website.
Another option is to Get off teh train at Ciampino (as the FR4 line stops theere as well) and get a taxi from there to Ariccia.
Any advice ?

1. Look at www.trenitalia.com (official rail website). Look for English at the top. Enter Rome and Albano Laziale and a date in the next week (but the same day of the week in which you plan on going, because commuter trains can have different schedules on Sundays and holidays than from the rest of the week). You should see that on a weekday, that the train runs about every hour and a hour in the morning and every hour in the afternoon. The fare is 1.90 euro - bargain price.

2. If there is a taxi queue anywhere in Albano Laziale, it is bound to be at the train station...how else do locals make the same trip? If there is no taxi service (which I doubt), then there will be bus service timed to train arrivals...that's the way it is all over rural Italy.

3. FCO to Arricia by taxi? Is it safe...yes...is it easier...yes...will it be expensive...yes ;-)

4. Note that the Leonardo Express (FCO to Termini) is now as much as 14 euro, because it is priced as all 1st class.

You could save a few euro (very few), by taking the FR1 (the other train from FCO) to Ostiense (8 euro), walking to the Metro station, taking the Metro (1 euro) to Termini, then switching to the end of Line A (Anagnina) (part of the same 1 euro), then taking the Cotral bus direct to Arricia (2 euro? 3 euro? I don't know). But what a hassle.

5. The best solution might be this: see if the Schiaffini bus line has resumed running the direct bus transfer between FCO and CIA. The Schiaffini website acts like it's still running (http://www.schiaffini.com/ServiaeroCiampB.htm - only in Italian), while the airports' website (they share it) acts like it's suspended (oops, the Italian page says it's suspended but the English page does not - hmmmn).
In any case, if it's running, it's 5 euro from one airport to the other, about 45 minutes, then you can just take the taxi from Ciampino to Ariccia if money is no object, as the distance is now only 8 kilometers straight down the Via Appia Nuova.
You might want to email Schiaffini at email: info@schiaffini.com and ask them if the bus is running (I imagine they can read an English email well enough)...

Thanks Brian for the feedback.
After further investigation schiaffini don't provide that service between the 2 airports at present. In short i think my simplest solution is to catch a cotral or terrovision bus service from Fiumicino to Rome and then transfer to an Ariccia service from there.
Thanks again.

How To Become a Millionaire in Italy!!

by icunme

News: TUSCAN VILLAGER WINS 148 MILLION EURO ON SAT, AUG 22!
This week, Aug 20, was the 86th draw without a winner and pushed the pot to 146.9 million euros for Italy's SuperEnalotto jackpot. It remains the world's biggest prize. Germans, Austrians and other foreigners are heading into Italy to play the lottery ahead of a record euro131.5 ($186 million) jackpot, including some who flew into Milan for a few hours just for a chance to win Thursday night. Since the last six-number win at the end of January, Italians have bet some 1.5 billion euros in the hope of becoming a millionaire, which translated into revenue of about 700 million euros for state coffers.
The advantage of the Italian game over others, especially those in America, is that SuperEnalotto pays out the full prize almost immediately, while US games give winners the pot in long-term instalments or pays a single, reduced prize.
SuperEnalotto winners also receive interest on their winnings from the time they redeem their slips to when they receive full payment, which usually takes two months for big payouts.
In order to win at SuperEnalotto, betters must choose the correct six numbers drawn from one to 90.
Ironically, this Italian lottery is one of the most difficult to win in the world.

* The odds of being able to win the jackpot by matching all six numbers are 1: 622,614,630!
* The odds of matching five numbers including the ‘Jolly number’ are 1:103,769,105.
* The odds of matching any five numbers are 1:1,235,346
* The odds of matching any four numbers are 1:11,907
* The odds of matching any three numbers are 1: 327

Yet, the Italian lottery has given out some of the biggest jackpots in recent times. A jackpot of euro 72 million went to a single ticket bought by ten people in a bar in Milan. A schoolboy is also known to have won a jackpot once at the Italian lottery.
Of course, there is a catch - you have to buy a ticket!! Buy at any sign-posted lotto seller in Italy or buy on-line from where ever you are.

Fumone

by janchan

At 802 mt. on the sea level, on Mt. Fumone there is a splendid and quite unknown little town.
Its castle right on the top has a beautiful hanging garden, and the view from there is breathless !

Fumone is sited in the province of Frosinone, at 90 km SE from Rome.
Highway A1 to Napoli get out at Anagni-Fiuggi.

Metro

by Marpessa

I used the metro once to get to the Vatican Museum. We got on at Barberini and got off at Ottaviano. It was very crowded and it was also very hot. The one we were on looked a bit old and 'worn'. But I did notice we passed another train and it looked fairly new and very nice - so I guess some of the trains are nice, some not as much. :) To use the metro you get a ticket from the machines at each stop, validate it at the machine and then go through the barrier. As with any public transport where it is crowded, just mind your belongings (purse/wallet, phone, etc.).

Although, for some reason my ticket wouldn't let me through the barrier - and I had validated it and everything, but luckily there was a guard there (who had seen me buying my ticket) and let me through.

To find a metro stop just look for the logo - a red square with a white 'M' on it.

Mi Piace PIAZZA NAVONA

by Krystynn

My favorite hangout is in PIAZZA NAVONA.

And I only eat la cucina Italiana (read: Italian cuisine) when I'm in Rome.

I have no favorite cafes here in Rome so long as they are located in the Piazza Navona area (I know, I know... I'm kinda biased when I'm in love with something... Aren't we all?).
