Castel Romano Shuttle Bus Services:
Over the years we have visited the Castel Romano designer outlet in Rome on many occasions and as can be seen from the comments and queries we’ve received, there’s been many questions asked about how to get to Castel Romano from Rome city centre.
Castel Romano Shuttle from Rome Termini Station
There is a daily shuttle service that leaves from near the via Marsala exit of Rome Termini station, but one thing to be aware of is that the shuttle arrangements and departure location do change slightly every now and then.
On our latest visit (September 2015), we found that the Castel Romano shuttle is now being operated by a local sightseeing company. They use the black branded Castel Romano bus, but if you’re planning to take the Castel Romano shuttle, don’t be surprised if there are changes in arrangements. The main thing is that the shuttles do run and that approaching the departure time you will see others waiting for the bus.
Buying Your Ticket for the Shuttle
Update – September 2015:
Via Marsala near the Termini end is being re-laid and as a result, the old ticket stand (picture to the right) is no longer there. The pickup point for the Castel Romano bus is now at number 71 via Marsala, which is on the Termini side of the road.
From the via Marsala exit of Termini Station, walk to number 71. You may not see any sign there for the Castel Romano bus. When it arrives, it will pull into whatever parking space there is near 71.
You can buy your bus ticket from the attendant on the bus.

Changes at Castel Romano
The Castel Romano complex has been undergoing some expansion and there is more development happening there. When we visited at the end of September 2015, we had to re-orient ourselves.
During our few hours there I managed to buy some nice Moreschi boots whereas Tony scored with very nice Hugo Boss jackets and other items.
Castel Romano Bus from Piazza Risorgimento
If your hotel is in the vicinity of the Vatican, you can now catch the Castel Romano outlet bus that departs from Piazza Risorgimento. For more information see HERE.
Cost of Shuttle Bus Ticket:
The return fares are Euro 15 (as at September 2015) per person. The journey takes about 45 minutes and you’re dropped off right at the outlet entrance. The shuttle ticket entitles you to a Privilege Card for the day which gives you a further 10% discount at certain shops. This however does not apply to items that are “on promotion” or “on sale”.
The Castel Romano shuttle bus certainly is a much easier way to get to the outlet and the return trip is just as easy as the bus will be at the same spot where you are dropped off on arrival. Apart from the cost being half of that being charged by other providers, you also have more time at the outlet as there are a number of departure times from Castel Romano back to the city.
