Rome has two airports. The main international airport is Leonardo Da Vinci, located near the Fiumicino area. The airport can be reached by bus and train. The second airport is located in Ciampino, on the city’s outskirts and is mostly used by the budget airline RyanAir. Ciampino can only be reached by bus. Both airports have fixed taxi rates from the centre of Rome.
