Easyjet or Ryanair from Ciampino. Car rental recommended! Parking at Cesano train station park and use of the train is the best solution to visit the city especially when going to the Vatican. Alternatively guests can drive down to Rome (20 to 40 minutes drive depending on traffic) and park their car at low cost car park and use public transports to cover short distances. When going out for dinner in Rome the use of the car is highly recommended!
