Rome Port Information - Harbour ferries, travel and information about Rome port.

Rome is easily accessible from major Italian cities, as well as destinations all over Europe. Getting around the city is convenient with its well-developed roads and public transport system.

Air travel

Rome is well served by the Leonardo Da Vinci Airport, also known as the Fiumicino. The Fiumicino is an intercontinental airport and is the chief airport in Italy. Flights from Asia, Europe, and America arrive and depart at the airport regularly.

In addition, there are two smaller airports serving domestic and European flights. These are the Giovan-Battista Pastine, more commonly called the Ciampino Airport, and the Aeroporto de'l'Urbe, which handles mostly private flights.

Car Hire and Road Transport

Hiring a car in Rome is a nightmare due to the chaotic traffic, many fasting moving scooters and 'Italian driving temperament'. There's also a tendency for historic excavations to get in the way of highways and you're better off using the public transport unless you're thinking of leaving the city. If that is the case then online booking is the best option for cheap deals.

Car Parking

Rome has abundant parking spaces, many of which were developed specifically for tourists. A popular option is the Gianicolo parking space, which offers low-cost parking starting at €10 per vehicle. Located near many of the city's tourist attractions, the Gianicolo is a common stop for tour buses and travellers, and even includes a 430-seat snack bar and a smaller restaurant.

Travel by Trains and Rail

The main rail system serving Rome is the Metropolitana, also known as the Rome Metro, consisting of two subway lines. Line A runs from Ottaviano to Battisini, Line B from the main station Termini to Rebibbia. An extension of Line B, as well as C and D lines, are currently under construction. There is also an express line connecting the Fiumicino Airport to the city centre.

The subways can get congested at peak times, particularly line A because it is shorter than most European lines.

Travel by Buses and Coach

Rome is also served by a comprehensive bus line, managed by the public transport department under the bus and light rail network Metrebus. Buses run through the city centre and connect Rome to most northern Italian cities.

Travel by Taxis

Taxis are a popular option for getting around, especially among tourists. They are not advisable during peak hours, though, because of the city's zonal traffic limitations. The Zona a Trafico Limitato programme banned some vehicles from the city's busiest places during peak hours.
