    1919= Airport =
     
    2424From the FCO airport, take the train (Leonardo Express) to Rome Termini. It costs 14 EUR, it's direct, 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 FCO airport.
    2525
    26 The hotel is a 13 minute walk (1.1km) from Rome Termini station.

    30 A taxi ride from the FCO Airport to inside the Aurelian Walls (which is where the hotel is) has a fixed price (tariffa fissa) of 48 EUR. Be sure to tell the taxi driver of this option before you get in the taxi. The taxi ride may take 1 hour, but that depends on the traffic.

    3232As you exit the airport, many people will offer you a taxi ride, but they will try to rip you off. Ignore them or kindly decline and go to the taxi stand outside.
    3333
    34 While in theory most taxis should accept credit cards, their credit card 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 accept credit cards.
