Rome Ciampino Airport Guide
- Full name: Giovan Battista Pastine Airport
- Location: The airport is situated nine miles (15km) southeast of Rome.
- Time: GMT +1 (GMT +2 between the last Sunday in March and the Saturday before the last Sunday in September).
+39 06 7934 8521 or +39 06 7949 4234.
- Transfer to the City:
Airport taxis are available and as has been mentioned, taxi fares from Ciampino Airport into the centre of Rome (defined as the area within the Aurelian walls) can be prohibitively expensive. To combat this problem, the airport has set up an official taxi stand, located opposite the arrivals hall. Here, taxis operate on a fixed rate of about €30 per cab, good for a maximum of four passengers and their baggage. The trip should take 25 minutes - but in traffic, it'll be closer to an hour. Buses are another option, and there are many service providers. Travellers are advised to choose to go the public bus route.
- Car rental:
Car rentals are provided by Avis, Budget, Europcar, National, Sixt and Hertz. The rental offices are well-signed and are located near the airport's entrance. You will require an International Driving Permit (IDP) in order to rent a vehicle, and all cars will feature automatic transmissions.
A bank (Banco di Roma) is located in the departures area, and numerous ATMs and bureaux de change are scattered throughout the terminal building. A lost and found office is also available, as is a VIP lounge with a snackbar and private boarding/disembarkation gates. Other facilities include nursery and medical facilities; a passenger assistance and customer service desk; tour operators and travel agencies; shops and cafes; and full access and comprehensive facilities for disabled passengers (the airport is renowned for its convenience for disabled passengers).
Both short- and long-term parking is available at Ciampino Airport. The first 15 minutes are free, thereafter various charges are levied.
