It's convenient, it's right inside the airport, it's a lot more fun than taking a taxi or bus, and it places you right in the middle of everything. Make sure your hotel isn't too far from Termini, which is the train terminal in the middle of the city. The Leonardo Express makes no intermediate stops. It's super-convenient.

The easiest and safest way to and from the city centre and Fiumicino Airport. The cost is not the cheapest at Euro 14 or the service the most direct to your destination, as it will only take you to Roma Termini (Rome’s railway terminus) and not to any other station in between. Buses to Termini cost less, but there’s always... More

On time, comfortable, and stress free. Costs 14 Euros each way, non-stop, takes about 30 mins to get to the airport from Roma Termini. Runs twice each hour. Tickets can be bought at the self-serve machines with English language, or at the ticket office if you are machine-challenged. You are able to select the desired time of departure, so pick... More

I would recommend this train service to anyone traveling between the Roma airport and Roma Termini. It was extremely punctual and very fast. Easy to buy tickets online. Recommended

Our family of 4 had no problems buying tickets from the machine and riding to Rome Termini. Just remember to validate your ticket on the little machines on the platform (they are all over the place) before you get on!

Really easy way to get into central Rome from the airport. Plentiful ticket machines with various language options at both the airport and Rome Termini station. As long as you remember to validate your tickets whilst on the platform, it'd be difficult to go wrong.

Best way into the city from the airport. Brought tickets from the kiosk, select English and it makes it so simple. Remember to "validate" the ticket before getting on the train otherwise your in for a fine. Very quick and clean, takes about 30minutes non stop.

Fast, comfortable, and affordable. Definitely the way to get from Fiumicino Airport to the center of Rome.

The Leonardo Express is a simple, non-stop train between Roma Termini (central train station in Rome) and Fiumicino Airport. The platforms are easy to get to - just note that the platform at the airport is a 5 min walk from the terminal (all internal). When we went they were upgrading the walking belts so you had to walk the... More

We used the Leo express both ways two and from the airport. Easy to find our way in both directions. The train was clean and left on time. Spent a lot of time travelling at 20km/h and arrived late. Not happy with the ticket booking machines, as we wanted to buy a ticket the day before for the return trip... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
