General information


A heady mix of haunting ruins, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life; Italy’s hot-blooded capital is one of the world’s most romantic and charismatic cities.

For almost 2,700 years, Rome has been continuously inhabited, and as the headquarters initially  of the Roman Empire and then of the Roman Catholic Church, it has had a huge impact on the world. 

Many European languages are based on Latin, many political and legal systems follow the ancient Roman model; and buildings all round the world utilise styles and techniques which were perfected in ancient Rome.

Airport and transportation to the hotel

Rome has two airports - Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) and Ciampino

Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) airport FCO is Rome’s main airport. Each day the hub connects with 200 destinations with an effectiveness and security that are unrivalled in the world, with over 40 million passengers per year. It is also well-connected with the centre of Rome during the day by an express train.

The express train between Fiumicino Airport and Stazione Termini (Rome's main train station) costs EUR 9.50 and the journey takes about 30 minutes. The train departs from and arrives at Termini station at track no 27 and runs from 06.30 till 11.30. 

Ciampino airport: Rome's smaller airport, is mostly used by charter flights and budget airlines. 

To get to the centre of Rome from this airport, take the COTRAL bus, get off at Metro A: Anagnina station, then to Termini Station. The COTRAL bus runs every 30 minutes, until 23.00. The only way to get to Rome after this time is to take a taxi.

Taxis to city centre

The licenced taxi drivers are located at the stand where there is a sign that reads “TAXI” located directly outside of the arrival terminal. Taxis in Rome are white and have an emblem on the side door that reads “Comune di Roma.”

The fixed fare for an official Rome taxi is EUR 48 between Fiumicino airportand central Rome (within the Aurelian walls) for up to four people and their luggage. The trip takes approximately 45 minutes to most parts of this central area. The trip from the airport to the conference hotel Marriot Park should be approximately EUR 35.

Please note that the fixed price from the airport to central Rome applies only to taxis which are licensed by the City of Rome. Other taxis, such as those licensed by the Comune of Fiumicino, can charge by their meter. We recommend that you take an official, licenced Roman taxi. 

The fare from Ciampino airport to the city centre is EUR 30.

In Italy the unit of currency is the Euro (€). ATMs are widespread. Major credit cards are widely accepted but some smaller shops, trattorias and hotels might not take them.


Romans are not big tippers, but the following is a rough guide:

  • Tipping in taxis is optional, but most people round up their fare to the nearest Euro. 
  • In restaurants the service (servizio) is generally included; if not, a Euro or two is fine in pizzerias and trattorias, no more than five to 10% in smart restaurants. 
  • Tipping in bars is not considered necessary, although many people leave small change if drinking at the bar. 
  • At A-list hotels, it is customary, to tip porters approximately EUR 5.
