Cheap Flights to Rome
Ah, bella Roma. What an incredible city. And you'll want to get there as easily as possible. A number of airlines fly direct from the UK and flights to Rome can be relatively cheap if you're lucky and book the right dates.
From the frescoes of the Vatican Museum to the romantic piazzas, Rome truly is an architectural masterpiece and well worth spending some time exploring even if you're only in the capital for a short time on business.
Rome Fiumicino Airport
Rome's main airport, Fiumicino, is situated to the west of Rome, towards the sea and the town of Fiumicino. Trains run every 15 minutes at peak times between Fiumicino and Termini, Rome's main train station. You must buy a specific ticket for the fast train. Buses also run between the airport and the city. Travelcards will cover your journey on the bus or normal train (not the express train).

Rome Ciampino Airport
Although it's closer to the city centre, Rome's Ciampino Airport isn't as easily accessible as Fiumicino. Transport options are either taxi or bus. Regular budget coach services run between Ciampino and the city centre. The airport itself is relatively small with limited shops and food outlets on offer and it's mainly the low-cost carriers that fly here due to the lower operating costs at the airport.

Things To Do In Rome
So much to see and do and so little time. If you've only got a couple of days in Rome before flying home again, make sure your visit some of the favourites.
The Colosseum, hands down one of (if not THE) most iconic buildings in Rome. Completed in AD 80, the Colosseum amphitheatre is almost 2,000 years old, having hosted some 60,000 spectators at events such as gladiator contests and shows dipicting battles at sea.
