More about Rome

where is:

To locate the apartment within the city type on Google Maps

VIA VITTORIA, ROMA. You will be given a few images of the street itself and its location within the area in the city.

 

from/to Fiumicino Airport:

  • PUBLIC TRASNPORTATION

We only recommend it if you travel light and plenty of time. .

Take Leonardo Express from Fiumicino airport to Stazione Termini (main Rome station).

Metro A direction Battistini, stop at SPAGNA station, then walk for 5 minutes to the apartment. Tickets cost per person: 8 euros from airport, + 1,5 for metro. Public transportation.

The official cost for a taxi is the following:

Euro 48 from Fiumicino airport to Rome (inside the walls – Via Vittoria is inside the walls)

Euro 30 from Ciampino airport to Rome (inside the walls – Via vittoria is inside the walls)

Be careful to take the official white cab with the signal TAXI on the top. Do not take anybody that offers you for a taxi. Outside the arrival terminal there is a line for taxi.

  • SHUTTLE SERVICE

There are many private services available. The one I can suggest, already tested, is Express-shuttle Service: Mr. Marco Rulli (+39 3428513940 –  rulli.marco@gmail.com  or airportshuttleexpressroma@gmail.com). You can ask for the service directly indicating your flight number, timing and airport in Rome. The coxt is 45 euro per tweo people + 5 any additional person.

The benefit of the shuttle is no hassle for you to find the train, the metro etc. and somebody will be waiting for you at the arrival Terminal at Meeting Point at the airport.

ROME PASS

We do not suggest to buy any RomePass tickets because all main sightseeings are at walking distancr from the apartment.

If you are tired afgter a walking day, you can easily reach the apartment with a Metro A ride (1.5 euro) to SPAGNA stop, or a taxi or the many electric bus leading to Via del Corso.
