When you arrive at Fuimicino Airport (FCO), which is actually outside the main Rome, you may choose to take express train to the city centre, known as Roma Termini Station. It is recommended to keep your accomodation near Termini, specially when you are on a short trip, to synergize your cost and time. The express train, aesthetically called Leonardo Express, runs every 30 minutes and 24 hours, is the most famous and effective means of transportation to reach to the Termini from FCO unless you have specific reasons or your accomodation is far from Termini. Once you are done with your luggage, just follow the train sign until you end up to a platform. It will be a 10-15 minutes walk with couple of escalators in your way. Don't forget to pick the city map and other useful information from the Tourist Information Centre before you reach to the platform. One way ticket will cost you 11 euros, which is a bit expensive, specially to people on tight budget like me. To assuage the welcome brunt a bit, ask for the carnet of 10 which will cost you 85 euros, a saving of 2.5 euros per ticket. Oh, but you won't need 10 tickets, would you? So, be smart like us, sell the deal to other travellers, it looks silly, but believe me it will take you not more than 5 minutes to have more than 10 people ready join in your deal. And here you come to know that most of the people are on budget like you! After all, you can have a cup or cone of gelato from outside of the Termini from your saving! A win-win deal for everyone and gelato is free! And don't worry about your luggage, Leonardo Express has enough capacity to take your luggage to the destination without much hassle. Happy Roming!
