it will me and my husbands first visit to italy ( we dnt speak or know italian) and im not sure how difficult it will be to take the metro(esp with luggage) and or cabs(i hear its already pricey for a cab). we are "begginer travelers" so i figured it would be less stressful. Can anyone give me some feedback about what Fiumicino airport is like and if getting into rome is a pain or not too hard? we are going to an apartment (vacation rental) not a hotel so we dont have the option of the hotel providing a shuttle service. thats why i thought of a personal driver (approx 50euro)

    If you take a cab, do not just hand them the fair, count the money out as you give it to them. Some will take a 20 and then switch it for a 5 expecting you are not sure of the currency. over 4 years ago

    The train is easy and runs often. I think it costs 14 euros and takes about 30 minutes or so. over 4 years ago

    There is a set fee for a taxi from FCO to anywhere inside the city walls. It is 40euro total for up to 4 passengers including luggage and there is a big sign saying so at the taxi rank. The ranks are outside terminals 1, 2, 3 and 5. We went for this option the second time we visited Rome because by the we'd have paid two train fares, so 28euro and then a taxi from the station to the hotel, we figured it was more or less the same price and easier just to take one type of transport. over 4 years ago

    If you do go by taxi, ask rate first then count out money as you give it to him, everyone and their dog short changed me or said I never paid enough! over 4 years ago
