From Civitavecchia (the port of Rome)
Pronounced chi’v’ta’vekia this old port has become a stopping point for most western mediterranean cruises. It has a beautiful castle which is prominent as you disembark from the boat. The only way of getting to Rome has to be by train. There will be many taxis waiting to take you but the traffic will almost certainly be worse than the driver tells you. Additionally the train costs much less and offers more leg room.
From Fiumicino airport
Of the 2 airports serving Rome, this airport is usually the preferred arrival point due its trans-atlantic flights. The easiest and quickest way to Rome from the airport is by train, but there is also a national bus service. Avoid using taxis and private transfers as they are expensive and prone to delays.
From Ciampino airport
This airport is the closer of the 2 to Romes city center, but isnt aswell connected. There is a train to Rome but it doesn’t leave from the airport, hence you need to take a bus and then the train. The best way to get to Rome from Ciampino, which is used by alot of smaller airlines like Ryanair and Easyjet, is to use the local bus service to the Metro Anagnina. From there its a simple matter of getting off at the nearest stop to your hotel, apartment etc.
