Good afternoon, The best way to arrive in Castel Gandolfo from Fiumicino Airport, is the taxi; the fare is about 80,00 Euros and it takes 1 hour; is also possible to take the train to Termini Station and change for a train to Castel Gandolfo. This solution is much cheaper, but you will take almost 2 hours. Kind regards Hotel Castel Gandolfo
