from fumicino airport to a hotel

Dear all,

I'll be in Rome for only over night, and I'd like to see as much of it as possible. So any advice to reach the hotel as fast as possible (I'll be in Hearth hotel, next to Vatican) with lowest price.

And what can I see there if I reached the airport at 6pm and I'll leave next day on 4 pm.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think you will see much of anything

do you have tickets to the Vatican

it would have been easier to stay near Termini railway station and there is more to see there

Fastest travel and lowest price are never the same. For all the options, see the Top Question "To and from FCO airport" at top right of this page.

The fastest and easiest way would be to take a taxi. This won't be the cheapest. The cheapest will be by bus but that will also take the longest.

As for what to see, you need to get a guide book to determine what is the most important for you to see. We can all make suggestions as to what we find important but if you don't have the same interests then you'll have wasted the little bit of time you have in Rome seeing things you're not interested in. That's why a guide book is so important.

This is only general information for what to see after you decide how to get from the airport to your hotel and back the next day and how much time you will have and after you consider sites to see

While your hotel is very close to the Vatican, most of the other sites are across the river - you can walk but the metro is faster. That evening if the weather is good you could go over there and walk around.

If you want to visit the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel the next morning, you should pre book for an early time and that would be it for that day, assume you need to be back to the airport 2 or 3 hours ahead of your flight time - definitely 3 if international flight, St. Peter's is free, maybe you will encounter no line.

If you want to tour inside the Col., then you can also pre book a time, or get a ticket at the Forum entrance to avoid the ticket lines.

Of course you will not be able to do both the Vatican Museum and the Col. the next morning.
