Months ago I decided to give my dad a weekend in Rome, of course, being his guide. It was the first time my parents had left the country by air, so I wanted it to be something special.
Rome can be reached by air with several low-cost companies. Between them
Clickair and Vueling. With time and several offers you can find a ticket for 60 euros round trip. Both arrive at Fiumicino airport, which is the city's main airport. Another low-cost company that flies to Rome is Ryanair, although it leaves Girona and arrives at Ciampino airport.
To go from the airport of Rome to the center you can go by train or taxi. By train there is the Leonardo Express, which is a direct train to Termini station. It takes about 30 minutes and the price is 11 euros each way. There is also a train that is not direct and makes several stops, the FM1, although this does not go to Termini.
