Italy is one of the most visited countries in the whole world, and every year thousands upon thousands of tourists visit the country. The popularity of Italy means that Italy’s relatively easy to get around. Smaller airports can almost be found in every medium sized city, but there are four main airports in the country, which see constant traffic, including Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci- Fiumicino international airport, Milan’s Malpensa International airport, Linate Domestic Airport in Milan, and Bergamo Airport in Bergamo. All airports in Italy are on the outskirts of the city, and the average distance from the airport is about 30km. Every airport in Italy is well connected and it’s easy to get to central destinations via public transport.
Every airport has a range of options when it comes to getting to and from the airport. All major airports have an Express bus, which allows passengers to either buy a single or a return ticket. Express buses from Italian airports leave from the main terminal and arrive at a central location in the city, typically the main bus or train station. The average cost of a bus fare one-way is about €8 and a return €12.
If you want to catch a train, this is slightly more expensive, and tickets start at €15 one-way.
Another option is taxi, however taxis can be expensive. Italian law states that taxi companies have a fixed price to and from the airport, depending on which airport you’re traveling from, so make sure your taxi driver states this clearly at the beginning so you don’t get caught out. Taxi prices can range anywhere between €60 and €100 per ride.
