Flying to Rome low cost? It’s time to celebrate as the Italian capital has just launched a new public transport route to Rome’s second most important airport: Ciampino.
From today, Monday 18th september, the new ATAC bus line, number 720 will connect Rome’s city center with the capital’s secondary airport: Ciampino. You can take the bus at the Laurentina Metro station, terminus of the B metro line and it is going to pass every 20 minutes. Tourists can be very happy as they are going to be able to reach the airport serving as hub for Europe’s most important low -cost airline, Ryanair for the price of a regular bus ticket 1,50 EUR. The ticket has a validity of 100 minutes therefore after getting to Laurentina, travellers can proceed by metro with the same ticket, hence this combination will allow them to get into the city center easily on a low budget.
There are vending machines where you can buy your ticket, but they can also be purchased at the Chef Express bar.
This new connection is a huge opportunity for Ciampino and for visitors (and locals) departing and arriving here as the airport is now one of the busiest and fastest growing airports in Italy.
What are you waiting for? Book a flight, get to Rome and go and check out the city’s most peculiar spots off the beaten track.
