Customer feedback

Superorganized in every detail. ....The information before, upgrading the car without extra charge in advance, the fast and nice service at the pick up place and the reasonable price!
Ten out of ten. Both drivers were on time and professional. Would definitely use Kiwi taxis again. Communication was also good Keeping us informed of driver contact details
The driver was waiting for us at the exit, even with the plane arriving late. He was very polite, drove well, we could understand each other perfectly in english (even that it was not our first language). Everything went well and I definetly recommend the service.

Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Rome Fiumicino Airport

There are two airports in the capital of Italy: Ciampino (mostly receiving low-cost flights) and Fiumicino International Airport, which is the largest airport in Italy and one of the ten biggest in the world. It is named after the great Italian Leonardo da Vinci and has 4 terminals: Т1, Т2, Т3 and Т5 (no T4, which is oddly enough). If you are arriving to Fiumicino and in hurry to get to Rome or another Italian city such as Venice, Florence, Naples, Sorrento or others, study transport in Rome in detail.

How to get from Rome Fiumicino Airport to Rome city center or the other way round

Fiumicino air hub is one of the most important air hubs in the capital of Italy. So it is possible to get to Rome, its train stations, and bus stations by several types of transport:

  • private buses of different companies (Cotral, Terravision, SitBusShuttle etc.);
  • express train Leonardo Express;
  • regional trains Treno Regionale;
  • taxi, taken on the spot;
  • transfer, booked online in advance.

Taxi companies, that enable ordering via the app are not popular in Rome. The biggest taxi service Uber is forbidden. So, if somebody offers you to use this system, keep in mind, that it is illegal and you take all the risks for a trip.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Rome Airport to city, taken on the spot

Advantages of a private transfer

No bargaining over the price. It is possible to get to Fiumicino Airport from the city center (and the other way round) for a fixed price: it is same for all taxis from Leonardo da Vinci airport to Rome. But taxi drivers find this tariff unfairly small. They will try to convince you to pay more, so you will have to bargain. Not in case of a transfer!

Travel with an adequate driver, not with an Italian movie character. Italians are emotional people, and italian drivers are twice as emotional. They feel an urge to bargain with you over the price, share their ideas, and loudly and dramatically specify the route. You will get tired of it in 30 minutes, while travelling from the airport to the city by taxi. Kiwitaxi drivers have strict rules of behaviour and usually keep silence.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

3 euro more expensive. Standard price for a trip by taxi from Fiumicino Airport to Rome center is equal to 48 euro, if you manage to make a deal. By transfer you will get there for 51 euro.

Transfers from Rome Airport vs. Express Train

Advantages of a private transfer

You will not be fined 100 euro. Tickets for Leonardo express must be validated face up in a yellow ticket validator, before getting on a train. If you forgot to do it or validated face down - a fine of 100 euro.

Twice as faster. By express train you will get to the city center (Termini train station) in 1 hour, with waiting time and transits. Transfer from Fiumicino Airport to Rome will take you to your hotel door in 30 minutes.

Small price difference, when travelling in a pair. You will have to pay 14 euro for one express train ticket in order to get to Fiumicino Airport or vice versa. Transfer for a group of 4 costs 51 euro.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

More expensive, when travelling in pair: you will pay 51 euro instead of 28 euro if you choose express train.

Transfer vs. Buses from Fiumicino Airport

Advantages of a private transfer

5 buses — 5 different stops in Rome. 5 different buses depart from Fiumicino airport to city center, each of which has its own itinerary (not always going via Tiburtina), and its terminal stop in Rome. Wanted to travel with Cotral, but only managed to catch Terravision? You will have to get off at via Marsala instead of Piazza dei Cinquecento. With Kiwitaxi you go wherever you need to.

Didn’t buy tickets online on time? Pay more! Bus tickets bought from a bus driver are 2-3 euro per person more expensive than those bought on the Internet. The price of transfer from Leonardo da Vinci Airport to Rome is fixed, whether you paid in advance or not.
