Rome Airport – Metro

Rome Airport is not directly connected with Rome Metro. Here you can find all metro options within the Rome city.

Metro in Rome is called Metropolitana. There are 2 Metro lines: A (red) or B (blue). It passes every 5-10 minutes. Even metro is not directly connected with the airport, you can go with Train or Bus from Fiumicino Airport to the city centre to Termini station, where you will find all Rome Metro connections. To discover Rome, probably the Metro is the quickest and the most effective transport way. If you need to go to Vatican Museums, Cipro Metro station is the closest.

From the Metro stop Piazza di Spagna (line A), you can visit many attractions by walk such as Pantheon or Fontana di Trevi. You can use Metro line B for the ancient Roman places, it takes you to the Colosseum, to Circo Massimo or Caracalla Baths.

Rome Metro system has ticket barriers. It means you have to pass through them puting your ticket in the slot, if valid it will be returned and then barriers will open. All the information (date and time) will be recorded on the ticket. Children under 10 can travel for free and don’t need any ticket. At Termini station you can change between metro lines without going through ticket barriers (with the same single ticket).
