Getting to Roma city centre

Fiumicino Roma Airport (FCO) Leonardo da Vinci airport is main airport of Rome where arrive the most part of direct international flights. From the airport to the centre of the city you can get a Train that arrive in Termini central station close to the hotels and ISPRA office. The ticket is variable in according to the type of train you get.

Ciampino Roma Airport (CIA) Giovan Battista Pastine airport is the secondary airport of Rome here arrive mainly the low cost international flights. The connection service with Ciampino urban area is offered by CONTRAL Bus every 30 minutes and than you can take a light metro connection from Ciampino railway station to Termini central railway station with an average time of 15 minutes. The ticket for bus and metro is 1 .


There are many hotels we have selected several that we consider good within walking distance of the office and relatively closet o Rome centre; the average rate is (expect around 100-160 per night).

Hotel Royal Santina, just 50 meters from ISPRA office (phone: +3906448 751; http://www.hotelroyalsantinarome.com).

Hotel Massimo D'Azelio, very high standard at normal price I consider the best choise, I suggest! (phone: +39064870270; http://www.romehoteldazeglio.it);

Hotel Mondial, it’s a Best Western hotel (phone +3906472 861; http://www.mondialhotelrome.com)

Hotel Nord Nuova Roma; it’s the same owner of Massimo D’Azelio and I consider very good comparable to the category, I suggest! (phone: +39064885441; http://www.romehotelnord.it);

Hotel Camelia is located in older build and it’s close to the office (phone: +39064436 1380; http://www.hotelcameliarome.com)
