The Terravision Rome Airport Bus

Getting from either of the airports outside Rome to the city center can be an expensive business. Fortunately, there are some inexpensive and efficient alternatives to taking a taxi. We used the Terravision Rome airport bus service to travel from Fiumicino airport to the centre of Rome.

Great value for just €4 (one-way). The service was well organized and comfortable, with buses running every 40 minutes or so.

This is a big saving over a taxi fare of €40 to €50.

You can safely purchase your bus tickets in advance online. The service also operates from the other Rome airport – Ciampino. You’ll save money if you buy your tickets online, and you’ll avoid any hassle finding the ticket booth and queueing to buy them when you arrive.

There was no scramble to grab seats. A very efficient young lady kept busy organizing customers into an orderly queue, resulting in quick and efficient boarding.

Terravision Rome Airport Bus – Boarding

The bus travels directly (no stops) to the central bus and train terminal in Rome (Termini). From here, you can jump on the metro and travel on to your hotel/guesthouse. Although not extensive, the Rome metro system can usually get you within reasonable walking distance of your destination.

If you use the Terravision service to travel back to the airport, you need to exchange your travel voucher for a boarding card at the ticket office behind the Termini station before boarding. It can get busy at the Termini office, but booking in advance will ensure you get a seat on the bus at the time you need to travel. Give yourself plenty of time in case of heavy traffic getting out of the city center.

You can also take a train from Fiumcino airport to Termini. Trains run every 30 minutes, but the tickets are considerably more expensive at €11 (one-way).

Update: The service is rapidly deteriorating at Terravision.

    We had a similar negative experience with Terravision on our last trip. From a good beginning, it seems they now might be losing the plot…

    They seem to be expanding their network to new cities, catering especially to Ryanair destinations like Liverpool, Eindhoven and Malta.
    Good news for budget travellers!
