how to reach Rome from ciampino Airports by taxi

By Taxi

I think this is the best way to avoid changing many types of transport before getting to your accommodation in a city where you have never been and also probably don't speak the language to ask for indications.

Too many times I arrived at a new destination quite tired. After waking up in the middle of the night to go to the airport because my flight were leaving very early (it is usually much cheaper).


So sharing a taxi with my travel mates saved me all the stress to catch multiple kinds of transport to reach our accommodation.


It obviously depends on how many travel mates I have and the price of the private transport. Something by splitting the cost between 4 people the final price is not so high.
