Up to this point, the three most popular transportation options to Rome’s city center from the main Leonardo DaVinci Fiumicino Airport have been:
- the standard taxi ride, that will run you upward of €50 one way.
- the ‘Leonardo Express’ train that brings you to Rome’s Termini Station for about €14 each way.
- a Cotral Bus, which will also bring you to Rome’s Termini or Tiburtina Station for about €4.50 each way
However, Alitalia has introduced their own new bus service for getting to the center of Rome.
The only catch is that you need to be flying into Rome on an Alitalia flight in order to use it.
If you are flying on Alitalia, you can ride their brand new fleet of buses that will take you to one of several different drop off points throughout Rome, for only €7 each way. The buses will drop of at:
- Rome Ostiense Station
- Rome Termini Station
- Rome Via delle Fornaci/San Pietro
- Rome San Giovanni in Laterano
Really not a bad deal. And if you notice, other than the taxi, most other options will bring you to Rome’s Termini Station, which may not be convenient or close to where you are staying. With so many drop off locations, chances are you’ll find a stop on the Alitalia Bus line that is more conveniently located to your hotel.

Would you fly Alitalia just to be able to ride the bus to Rome? And if you did fly Alitalia, would you buy a ticket on the Alitalia Bus?
