Taking a taxi in Rome is the safest option especially if you are moving around at night or if you do not know the areas of the city well.

Airports in Rome
The Vatican City has two airports, the Leonardo Da Vinci Airport that we know as Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino Airport, which happens to be the farthest from the capital. Both airports are operated either by public transport such as taxis or by private taxis.

Fiumicino Airport is 50 minutes by car from the centre of Rome, while Ciampino is almost 30 minutes from the city centre.
- Termini Station: about 40 minutes (30 km)
- Colosseum: about 35 minutes (28 km)
- Ciampino Airport: about 30 minutes (32 km)
Private taxi prices:
Here are some examples of private taxi prices at a fixed price from the airport to the centre of Rome.

The price of public taxis from the airports.
In recent years the Municipality of Rome has introduced fixed rates for taxis from the airport to protect visitors to the Eternal City, even in public taxis. In fact, the price of the public taxi from Fiumicino Airport to the city centre, inside the Aurelian Walls, is 48 euros. The Aurelian Walls are the ancient Roman wall that limits the historical centre, but calculate well in advance to be sure that your destination is just inside the wall, otherwise the blocked fare rule will not be valid anymore!
How to book a public taxi
Our advice is to book a public taxi for transfers within the city by calling the Rome municipality taxi service. The service is also available through the application for mobile phone or tablet. When calling or booking a taxi it is essential to indicate a full address. Very generic requests without indicating a precise address and without indicating a telephone number will not be accepted.
If you have not booked our Rome Taxi service in advance and are looking for a driver directly at the airport, we recommend that you pay attention to any exorbitant taxis. In fact, the official taxis of the Municipality of Rome are white, they have the taxi sign on the roof, the initials on the door, the serial number engraved on the left rear door and the taxi meter. These characteristics distinguish the official taxis. For years, the Municipality and the taxi associations have been fighting tenaciously against illegal trade in the sector. It can be tackled by people offering themselves as taxi drivers outside the arrival gate. These predators are not official taxi drivers of the Municipality of Rome, they are mostly swindlers with unlicensed vehicles who practice the profession illegally. The official taxis are located in the appropriate stations outside the airport.
