From Ciampino Airport to the city centre
Many of the flights that pass through Ciampino Airport arrive early in the morning or late at night, making transfer options to the city centre difficult. There is also public transport to get to Rome from the airport, but choosing the private Ciampino Airport Taxi Service is certainly the best option. In fact, you can go directly to the hotel itself or any other requested address with a drive of almost 30 minutes. Alternatively, the average journey time by bus is 50 minutes to reach the terminal at Termini station and then it is necessary to take another form of transport to reach the hotel. Booking a private taxi in advance for your own transfer is a choice that allows you to be met at the airport by a professional driver and arrive comfortably to your destination.
Ciampino Airport is almost 30 minutes drive from the centre of Rome and it is the second largest airport in the capital. This airport is much smaller than the Fiumicino Airport and is primarily used by low-cost airlines, as well as private airlines and private jets. To reduce noise emissions to a minimum, because of the proximity to the city centre of Ciampino, a maximum of one hundred flights a day pass through the airport. The possibility offered to private jet owners to use this airport, makes it of crucial importance for VIP travellers who benefit from the high level of assistance and lounge.

How to book a public taxi
Public taxis cannot be booked from the airport. In fact, only in the city can they be called through the telephone, specific applications or by going to the taxi ranks. In order to move around the city while saving time and getting around safely, a taxi is undoubtedly the best option. Especially if you have to move around at night or if you are in areas where public transportation is not available. Furthermore, with regard to airport transfers, as mentioned above, public taxis cannot be booked in advance and, moreover, if you are not familiar with the city, you run the risk of spending much more than expected.
Practical advice: Avoiding exploitative taxis
When you arrive in a new city, the most important thing is to get to the hotel itself comfortably and in the shortest possible time. At the airport you may be approached by people pretending to be taxi drivers, in reality they are people who are illegally working in the profession. Therefore, it is important to use only the public taxis of the Municipality of Rome or professional private taxis. The public taxis of the Municipality of Rome are white, with the word taxi on the roof, the serial number engraved on the left rear door and the initials on the door. To avoid unnecessary waits on your arrival at the airport, our advice is to choose a private taxi service at a fixed price and with collection directly inside the airport.
The benefits of choosing a private taxi
Public taxis do not allow you to pre-book the service and therefore you often have to wait for an available car at the taxi rank outside the entrance. Instead, the private Ciampino Airport Taxi service which is booked in advance (at least 24 hours before the transfer to ensure availability), welcomes you directly inside the airport. A driver will wait for passengers with a sign specifying the name of the customer entered in the reservation. Because of these above mentioned benefits, a private taxi is the most suitable way to get to the centre of Rome stress-free and avoiding unnecessary waits when arriving. In general, when you travel and especially when you travel early in the morning or at night, often you arrive at the airport tired, so having someone waiting for you at the airport can be a great advantage to start your stay in the best way. The exclusive service offered by our private taxi is of the highest level and is carried out with new, clean and well cared for cars to offer a professional and precise service.
