Getting from Rome Ciampino to Rome city center isn’t neither hard nor expensive. We knew there were always companies available outside the airport that go directly to Termini station. On top of that, our Ryanair flight was early in the morning so we weren’t in a hurry at all. That’s why we didn’t book any tickets in advance. Here’s what we did instead:
From Ciampino Airport to Rome Termini station
The buses from Ciampino to Termini wait outside the airport. There were 2 buses and more coming. We ended up using Rome Airport Bus. It cost us 4,90 Euro one way.
The trip took us around 30-40 minutes. We arrived at Termini at Via Giovanni Giolitti. From there, we just walked to our Retrome apartment in Rome.
From Rome Termiini station to Ciampino Airport
We had to get the earliest shuttle to Ciampino at around 5 am. We used Sit Bus Shuttle this time which cost us 6 Euros. The bus stops at Via Marsala, it fill up very fast so be sure to be at least half an hour before departure. We were there at 5 for a bus leaving at 5:30.
