The bus lines 70 and 913 stop at Piazza Cavour and goes to Viale delle Milizie: FIVE STOPS, about five minutes trip. Adult ticket Eur 1,00. Free under 10 years.
The cheapest way to get into town from Ciampino is to take the local Cotral bus (from the stop opposite Arrivals) to the end of its route at Anagnina bus station (c.15 mins, tickets cost €1,50 and are bought from the driver). The bus station is connected to Anagnina metro station (Line A), and another €1,50 ticket will take you into town.
Taking a taxi: Always use official licensed taxis (white cabs), from the taxi stand. The city authorities introduced a fixed licensed taxi fare of €48 (from Fiumicino airport) and 35 Eur (from Ciampino airport) to and from the city centre (within the Aurelian walls). Regardless of how many (maximum depends on the car) of you there are, how many bags you have or anything else. When you arrive make clear that you have no intention of paying more than the fixed rate. There is no need to tip a taxi driver if you are unhappy with the service.
Arriving by train: Most trains arrive at Termini, the central station. Night trains arrive and depart also from Tiburtina or Ostiense, both just out of the city centre. DO always get official taxies from the taxi stand.
Driving into Rome: Our first advice would be, "don't"; although driving into Rome has been made easier since the advent of satellite navigation systems, unless you are familiar with the city's outskirts (and even then) it can be a frustrating and very slow process. Byzantine one-way systems mean that although all roads may lead to Rome, you can't always go in the right direction. Once you do make it into the city centre the ZTL (Zona a Traffico Limitato) doesn't allow non-resident cars into the centro storico from 8am to 6pm Monday-Friday, and 8am-2pm on Saturdays. Keep an eye out for the cameras and ZTL signs which mark the boundary of the restricted area, make a mistake and there's a fairly hefty fine. After all that you'll need to find somewhere to park...
Parking: Finding a legal and convenient parking space in Rome is the stuff of legend, in the centre a good bet is along the Lungotevere, the wide roads which run along the banks of the river. Legal spaces are delineated either with white or blue lines. The white ones, mostly found outside the centro storico mean you can park for free, the blue lines delineate pay-and-display parking spaces. Parking tickets are bought at the machines on the pavement and cost about €1.20 per hour, parking is free from either 8pm or 11pm until 8am depending on the area, check the machine. The major public car park in the centre, with convenient pedestrian access to piazza di Spagna, is the ParkSì under Villa Borghese, entrance on the via del Muro Torto (outside the ZTL), but if you're leaving the car for more than a few hours it gets very costly. Many hotels advertise car parking facilities, they are almost without exception eye-wateringly expensive.
Car Rental: If you want to hire a car in Rome to continue your trip in Italy we suggest the easiest, most painless way is to pick the car up either at Fiumicino Airport (for Tuscany and the North), or Ciampino Airport (for destinations south and east of Rome) and to get out of the city on the airport transport listed above.

The apartment was spacious and warm. It is located in a nice neighborhood about a 15 minute walk from the Vatican. Lots of wine bars, restaurants, and shops are nearby. The only thing that was inconvenient for us was the lack of Wi-Fi access.
Appartement spacieux idéalement situé dans Rome. Nous avons passé une semaine ma femme, mes 3 enfants et moi fantastique. très calme, à proximité du Vatican et du métro, l'appartement était très propre tout comme les lits et le linge de toilette.
Giovanni est un hôte prévenant et arrangeant qui nous a très bien reçu.
Une adresse à recommander!

Thank you agian Giovanni.
The Levy Family
Eine saubere, äußerst geräumige Wohnung! Gut angebunden und absolut ruhig in einem Innenhof gelegen. Der Gastgeber ist äußerst freundlich, verlässlich und spricht perfekt Englisch!
Besser geht's nicht!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Giovanni. L'appartement correspondait à la description et à nos attentes. Giovanni a été très accueillant et nous a laissé des renseignements sur le quartier, quartier pratique car beaucoup de commerces à proximité et proche du centre de Rome, même à pied.
Notre séjour a été trop court !!!
I stayed with a friend and her parents from Japan at Giovanni's place for 5 nights. The location was very good as it is close to Ottaviano metro station as well as Vatican. We also managed to use bus service around the area, which expanded our area of activity. The house was very spacious and clean and it was just as described on the Airbnb site.
I really appreciate the cleanliness of the house and its spaciousness. Though you have a lot of places to visit in Rome, I was happy to return to the house after lunch for a short rest before going out again in the evening.
The place was generally very quiet but I was sometimes disturbed with noises (walking noise) from the flat upstairs after midnight as well as from the street (the main bedroom is facing to the road outside unlike other rooms). The table in the kitchen was a bit small for 4 of us but we managed as we had only breakfast and night snack in the house. Plates, cups, pots and pans, etc. were sufficient.
The owner, Givanni, met us at the house on our arrival even though we were late for an hour as the bus from the airport took longer than usual due to heavy traffic.He was helpful and well organized. He even asked me how we wanted 3 rooms to be arranged in advance and made them according to our request. He put fresh fruit, juice, milk, eggs, butter, etc. ready for us, which was very nice. His recommendation of the nearby restaurant was excellent and we went there twice as it was so good.
There were almost everything we needed in the house for our stay except toilet paper, which was not (website hidden) was small and old but it had all channels with satellite and worked well. We needed just to watch BBC news in the morning.
All 4 of us were happy with the house and Givanni's organization and enjoyed the feel of living in Rome.
Thank you, Giovanni!
My family and I stayed in Rome for 4 nights. Giovanni's apartment is very spacious and has everything on would expect for a relaxed family trip: two bed rooms, living room w/ extra bed, kitchen, bathroom, additional separate toilet. The apartment is located at the 5th floor of a 6-story building complex. The furniture is not fancy but functional. We found everything in place and clean. Except for one bed room (which is rather noisy) all rooms are quietly located to the inner court of the facility. And Giovanni was a very reliable and polite host. He even cared for the 1st morning’s breakfast essentials: eggs, toast, butter, ground coffee, jam and fruits.
The apartment is only 10 min away from Vatican. Thus, one can walk many locations. Other sights can easily reached by public transport. Next Metro station is only 5 min away.
Rome was very busy w/ tourists. We booked tickets wherever possible online in advance. This way we avoided much waiting time. If you want to see the Collosseum go to Forum Romanum first: same ticket but short lines. For Saint Peter’s Cathedral you should get up early: We were there at 8:15 a.m. and didn’t have to wait. If you enjoy shopping at food markets, I recommend ‘Mercato Trionfale’ at Via A. Doria which is only a 10 min foot walk. Not a tourist place and very fresh and delicious. My most favorite restaurant was ‘Il Fico’ (website hidden)
One place you must go to is Giolitti: (website hidden) You will never find better ice cream at the universe!
I like reading, travels, photography, music, theatre, cinema, the natural world, the art, history, literature, museums, staying with friends and of course my family.
I've been traveling all over the world for work and leisure.
Existing beauty deserves our attention.
