    v26 v27  
    2828Here's where information about getting there goes.
    2929
     30To get to the city from the Fiumicino airport you have 3 options:
     31
     32* Train (recommended option)
     33
     34It costs 14 EUR, it takes 32 minutes and runs fairly regularly. You can buy tickets from the automatic machines with an annoying voice shouting at you at the train station in the airport.
     35
     36* Taxi
     37
     38From the Fiumicino Airport to inside the aurelian walls a taxi ride has a fixed price (tariffa fissa) of 48 EUR. Be sure to tell the taxi drive of this option when you get on. As you exit the airport many people will offer you a taxi ride, but they will rip you off, ignore them or kindly decline and go to the taxi stand just outside.
     39While in theory most taxis should accept credit cards, their credit card accepting machines always seem to have some form of malfunction. So be sure to either have enough cash on hand or ask them before starting the ride if they will take credit cards.
     40
     41* Bus
     42
     43The bus is cheaper than the train, but takes longer. Here you can find a list of bus companies that offer Fiumicino transfers: http://www.adr.it/web/aeroporti-di-roma-en-/pax-fco-bus.
     44
     45* Uber
     46
     47The situation with uber in Italy is a bit complex. tl;dr Uber as you know it does not exist in Italy. If you book an uber a fancy car will pick you up and the price will be either equal or greater than a taxi.
