Before the Fiumicino International Airport was built, the Rome–Ciampino International Airport G. B. Pastine (CIA), most commonly called Ciampino, was the capital city’s main airport. Today, this smaller airport handles domestic and European flights for more than 5 million passengers a year and is the hub for the Ryanair budget airline.

The Basics

An airport transfer to or from downtown Rome is the best way to avoid the capital city’s daunting traffic. Opt for a private or shared service that includes pickup and drop-off at hotels in Rome or at the cruise port in nearby Civitavecchia upon arrival or departure.

You also can book a transfer service to destinations in Umbria, Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, Naples, and Sorrento. If opting for a longer transfer, combine the service with a driving tour to visit attractions along the route. Popular transfers with stops include visits to San Gimignano and Siena for transfers between Ciampino and Florence, or a visit to Pompeii or Sorrento for transfers between Ciampino and the Amalfi Coast.
