    I am writing this tip quite a while after I stayed here. It was for one night in May 2009, but my stay was quite memorable. The hotel is a member of www.designhotels.com, a group which emphasises design concepts, as the name indicates. Leon's Palace is housed in a beautiful Liberty Style building (i.e. Italy's version of Belle Epoque), contrasted with an ultra-modern refurbished interior. The room and the hotel were comfortable and very pleasant, at a price considerably less than most luxury hotels in Rome. The only drawback, which is probably why it is more affordable, is that it is located a bit of a distance from the city centre, via XX Settembre, but this thoroughfare contains numerous buses that go directly to via Veneto and the Centro Storico.

Rome to Fiumicino airport

by ara2


I am weighing down all the options of the journey in terms of cost and time taken to reach the airport. I learnt that besides the leornado express train, we could also take conventional train from Tiburtina/ Ostiense combined with metro line B. Could anyone advice me on how long this journey will take, how frequent the train is (would love to arrive at the airport around 10 pm), is it easy/messy connection and how much the cost is roughly.
I also read in wikitravel that it is possible to take metro line be to eur magliana and then connect with cotral bus which will cost euro2. Is this information up to date?
Would also love to learn should there are other options than those above.
Many thanks in advance for all the tips/information from fellow forumers.

First, where are you stating from in Rome? Tiburtina is not close to Ostiense.

The rail line you are talking about is the FR1 (also called FM1) - it is an urban railway, not quite Trenitalia, but the Trenitalia website (www.trenitalia.com) has the schedules.

When using the website, enter "Roma Tiburtina" for the start and "Fiumicino aeroporto" for the destination (this way you are sure to get the right stations). The FR1 runs every 15 minutes until 9 p.m., then runs 2 more times with a 30 minute interval, so you will be able to get out to the airport by 10 p.m. (p.s., this was on a weekday, Sundays and holidays might be different)

The cost is 8 euro one way.

Yes, there is a Cotral bus from several places - see http://www.adr.it/portal/portal/adr/Fiumicino/Servizi/Come_raggiungerci/Arrivo_in_bus_FCO?siteLanguage=en

So, again, where are you starting from?


Re: Rome to Fiumicino airport

If I was a traveller with little luggage and with probably even less money trying to reach Fiumicino airport, I may explore the possibility of taking a train out to Ostia Antica or even Lido di Ostia and then a local bus to the airport?
I have used the very effective planner on COTRAL that shows you a bus from Lido de Ostia near the sea from Via Armando Armuzzi near the railway station at Lido di Ostia Centro which is on the Rome Metro ticket area. The train from Rome to Lido di Ostia is called the "Little train" IL TRENINO. I think the train out to Lido costs €1 as it is part of the transport ticketing system and presumably you can connect from elsewhere in the city for this price and change at EUR Magliana or Piramide from the Metro B line.
From Lido di Ostia there is a bus taking 30 minutes to Fiumicino No. 3002 according to COTRAL but I can't find the time table or cost. The distance between Lido di Ostia and the airport is not that great as the crow flies but about 12 kms as the bus goes over the Tiber at Ponte di Tor Boacciana near Ostia Antica hence the 30 minutes journey time.

Travel Tips for Rome

Don't forget your trou

by Joodles

After visiting Rome a few times I eventually bit the bullet and went inside the Colloseum, a tourguide also. Wicked. The Latin Fiesta outside of Rome, huge fairgrounds with S.American, Spanish and carribean food, dance, knick knacks en zo. Can be really popular but not well known by tourists apparently.

Mille e una fontana

by croisbeauty

Would like to see mayor's happy face when signing the bill for the water supply in Rome, must be huge if so many fountains all over the city. Virtualy every square, even the smallest one, have its own fountain and each one is different in size, year of built and its beauty. You can't miss them when strolling around, you can't not to admire them but what I suggest you is to stop counting them.

Cloister garden at San Giovanni in Laterano

by icunme

Many are aware that the Basilica San Giovanni in Laterano was the first seat of the Pope. The Basilica is immense and the huge statues of the 12 apostles dominate the central nave. Off to the left of is the Cloister Garden and it is well worth taking a stroll there. In addition to many archeological ruins you will see along the square, there is a small museum with treasured vestments. The garden is well kept and the columns provide a peaceful walk - no picnics please! Donation for entry is 2 Euro.

Flying over

by fairy_dust

We flew over to Rome. We had Air Canada from Montreal to Frankfurt, then Alitalia from there to Rome. The flight is a few hours and on the way over, we saw the Alps out the plane window while we were flying over the mountains.

The absolute BEST thing to do...

by paulapes

The absolute BEST thing to do in Rome is to wander around, listen for clinking of dishes, and peek into windows to find small trattorias/osterias on little side streets, filled with locals. These are the BEST places to eat. Don't worry about communicating, you'll be able to get something terrific to eat even if you can't speak much Italian--try pointing (politely) to someone else's meal if it looks good, smile a lot, and order vino bianco or rosso!! Pasta, naturalmente!!
