To get to Rome Fiumicino Airport from the centre of Rome, travellers have a number of airport transfer options.

By Train

For many visitors staying in the historical centre of Rome, getting to Rome Fiumicino Airport is fastest by train.  Roma Termini, in Piazza dei Cinquecento, is the main Rome train station and there are two types of services:

The “Leonardo Express” is the fast train that runs between Rome Termini and Fiumicino Airport.  The journey takes about 31 minutes and the train does not stop at any other stations.

Trains leave from Platform 25 every half hour between 5:52 a.m. and 10:52 p.m.  Tickets can be purchased from Termini Station and it costs € 14 for a one-way fare.  There is usually a queue at the train ticket desk, but you can also purchase your tickets from one of the many self-serve vending machines.  Alternatively, the Trenitalia desks near Platform 25 also sells tickets, but the fare is €15 from here.
Note:  Remember to validate your ticket on the platform before boarding the train.

The “FR1” (Ferrovie Regionali) is a metropolitan line that travels between Fara Sabina/Orte and Fiumicino.  From Tiburtina Station, north of Termini, trains bound for Fiumicino Airport leave every 15 minutes.  The train makes stops at Tuscolana, Ostiense, Trastevere, Villa Bonelli, Magliana, Muratella, Ponte Galeria, Fiera di Roma before arriving at Fiumicino.  If your hotel is near any of these stops, you can catch this service to Fiumicino.  The fare at € 5.50 is cheaper than the Leonardo Express, but this is a much slower train.

    Very good summary! I’d like to add that if your are not going into Rome, but rather are heading to points north or south, the train from Fiumicino Airport to Tibertina Station is the way to go. The station is less crowded, and almost every train that leaves Termini for a remote destination stops at Tibertina. That means you can easily make connections there. Tibertina has been under construction for several years, as it will become the “through” station for fast trains running north and south. Great little coffee shop there too.

    I often travel to Spoleto early in the morning. There is a train from Fiumicino Airport that rambles all the way to Orte, another major hub that lets me connect to Spoleto, or many other points north.
