    • Transport Ciampino to Termini

      Rome Yesterday

      I am very concerned that I have not allowed enough time to get to Termini from the airport. I arrive Ciampino on a Tuesday at 16.50. Do you think I will have time to catch the Terravision transfer leaving at 17.15 ? Also, this bus is scheduled to arrive Termini at 18.05...do you think there is enough time to find the correct platform for the Naples train
      leaving at 18.23 ? Obviosly, everything has got to be on time for me to have any chance, and I am considering getting a taxi from the airport to Ciampini rail station, where the travel time to Termini is only 16 minutes.
      Any ideas welcome, the alternative seems to be to cancel my Rome - Naples train ticket and get a later train.

    • Over 65 entrance fee reductions.

      I am doing a combined trip to Naples and Rome, and have found that EU citizens over 65 get free entrance to Pompei and Herculaneum on production of suitable ID. I believe that this concession applies to all State-owned museums and sites. Can anyone tell me where I can obtain a list of museums etc in Rome that are State owned....for example the Forum and the Colloseum. Thanks

      Is there a faster/easier way from Civitavecchia to Ostia Antica than thru Termini

      by itchie75 Online Now Jul 12, 2008 at 1:47 PM

      Do we have to go from the train station at Civitavecchia to Termini and then catch a train back to Ostia Antica or is there a stop sooner (on the way to Roma) that we can get off at and then catch a train back to Ostia Antica? Like the Piramide stop? Or?

      Also I saw that you can take a boat along the Tiber river from Rome to Ostia Antica. Has anyone experienced that good or bad, cost, and the location to catch the boat relative to Termini or other stop?

      I know I can spend mucho EURO for a taxi or shuttle but trying to keep it resonable.

    • From Rome to Ostia and back

      by rosepetal720 Online Now Apr 18, 2008 at 1:09 PM

      All of these forums talk about how to get from the airport to Ostia; does anyone know the best way to get from Rome to Ostia? I was thinking of taking the cruise ship, but it only lets you stay in Ostia 2 hours. Is that really going to be enough time? I'm trying to figure out if I can take a bus there, what buses go there, what times, or maybe if I should take a cab... I just don't know! Any advice would by much appreciated.

      Cotral bus stop near Ostia Antica

      by mccalpin Online Now Aug 16, 2007 at 12:02 PM

      Guys, in doing some research, I have found a Cotral bus schedule that appears to run from Fiumicino airport to Ostia, via Ostia Antica, but I want to make sure I understand what I'm seeing online.

      First, go to cotralspa.it/PDF_Orari/AFC1.... . Note that buses leave from the terminal at Fiumicino for national flights, does something about "Roma Ostia Cineland v.Dei Romagnoli", then proceeds to Ostia's train station.

      My questions are:
      1. Where exactly is this Cineland stop? The address for Cineland is Via dei Romagnoli, 515, which appears to be close to the entrance of the Scavi (at Viale dei Romagnoli, 717?), but how close? I ask because the the bus evidentally comes down from the airport on the Via dell'Aeroporto di Fiumicino, stops at the intersection with the Via della Scafa, then continues until it hits the Via del Mare. If the bus continues to the train station in Ostia, it would take a right, away from Ostia Antica. Does it drop Ostia Antica passengers there (about a kilometer aways from the site), or does it take a left, go up the Via del Mare/Viale dei Romagnoli closer to the scavi, drop people off, then turn around and go to Ostia Lido?

      2. The "Roma Ostia Cineland v.Dei Romagnoli" stop is marked on the timetable with "(*)" in each case. The footnote says that "nota: (*) = Orario non garantito". What does that mean exactly? I understand the literal translation of "timetable not guaranteed", but I am thinking it also means something else. For example, does it mean that it doesn't make this stop unless you request it (although another phrase is usally used for that)? Or does it literally mean only what it says - that the bus gets there when it gets there, but it will get there?

      Is this obscure enough for you??? ;-) Thanks!

    • Fiumicino to Ostia Antica?

      by dcpowell8234 Online Now Nov 7, 2006 at 9:47 AM

      We will be staying in a small resort in Fiumicino for one day post cruise. Our one day is the day before Easter Sunday and we are thinking we would like to stay away from the crowds in Rome on that day (We will have had 3 days in Rome pre-cruise). Ostia Antica sounds like an interesting place to visit during that one day - but how best to get from our lodging to Ostia Antica? Rent a car? Bus? Train? Can you think of a better way to spend our day? Thanks!

    • Possible to visit Ostica Antica while on a layover at Rome airport?

      by bostonbali Online Now Jul 16, 2006 at 6:23 PM

      Hi,
      it seems that Ostica Antica is only 9KM away from FCO, Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino airport. We'll have a 5 hour layover, and were thinking of taking a cab a visiting Ostia Antica.
      Do you think this plan is doable? Is it easy to find a cab outside the ruins once we're done and need to hurry back to the airport?
      We could only allocate about 3 hours at Ostica Antica, but seems like it's still worth it.
      Thanks for any feedback!
