Rome Ciampino Airport (CIA)
A single terminal facility, Rome Ciampino Airport (CIA) is relatively small in comparison to Rome's Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, also known as Fiumicino. However, despite its size it is still a busy facility, handling flights operated by a large number of airlines to an expanding number of international cities, as well as destinations in Italy.
Ciampino Airport is situated approximately 15 km / 9 miles south-east from the centre of Rome, close to Frattocchie, Marino, Santa Maria delle Mole and the Greater Ring Road motorway. Serving some five million-plus passengers on a yearly basis, Rome's Ciampino is actually amongst Italy's busiest and most important airport, and has recently been expanded to cope with increased traffic created by its budget, 'no-frills' airlines.
Buses and trains offer connections with central Rome, linking the Ciampino Railway Station and Termini Railway Station (Stazione Termini), the Vatican area, the religious district of Capitolina, and the Viminale area, where a number of grand palaces reside. A number of shuttles are provided by prominent Rome hotels and offer fast transfers to accommodation establishments, while taxis, rental cars and limousines are also available in good numbers. Close to Rome Ciampino Airport, towns and cities of interest include Cerveteri, Frascati, Grottaferrata, Lake Bracciano and Ostia Antica.
