What are the main Rome airports, and how do I get from them to central Rome?
Although Rome has two airports, the main one is Rome Fiumicino, sometimes known as the Leonardo da Vinci airport. The other, Rome Ciampino, is mostly for regional flights; while Fiumicino handles most of the international traffic.
Fiumicino / FCO : SThis is the primary international airport in Rome, which is probably where you’ll be flying into from Australia. From the airport, you can easily hop on the Leonardo Express train to travel directly into the city center. The train takes about 30 minutes to go from the airport to Termini Station and it costs about €14. Just buy a ticket upon landing at any Trenitalia kiosk. You can also take a taxi—there’s a flat rate of €48 (about 75AUD).

Rome is a great place to study arts, history, literature, languages, the classics, philosophy and more. If you’re already at uni in Australia, check with your home uni to see if there are already partner programs and universities in Rome. This will make your experience a lot easier! If not, you can easily search for study abroad programs in Rome and find loads of options.
Rome lifestyle and culture
Roman lifestyle and culture encapsulates much of what many students and travellers love about the Italian lifestyle: a laid-back and community-orientated way of life that’s full of coffee, good food and centuries of history and art. You’ll quickly get used to slow mornings in coffee shops, fresh pasta from mom-and-pop restaurants, walking everywhere through narrow cobblestone streets and losing yourself in ancient history and modern culture and fashion.
Exploring Rome on a student budget
While Rome isn’t the cheapest city in Europe, it can easily be explored on a student budget. Some sights have a price tag attached (the Colosseum, for example) but there’s also lots of places that are free to visit or have student discounts. Our favorite can’t-miss free spots include the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish steps and the Villa Borghese gardens. There’s also lots of cheap and student accommodations in Rome, including hostels which can save you a lot of money and help you meet fellow travellers as well. Don’t be afraid to stay outside of the city center a bit—it’s considerably cheaper and the extensive subway system is pretty cheap.
