1. Re: which airport in Rome

There are two airports you'll probably see when looking for flights into Rome. The major airport is Leonardo da Vinci/Fiumicino (FCO). A much smaller airport is Ciampino (CIA). Both are within a short drive to the historic center. FCO also is linked via train (see the Top questions about Rome -- To and from FCO airport). There's also taxis and buses at both. These may help: roninrome.com/transportation/to-from-leonard… and www.ciampino-airport.info/transportation.html

For choosing accommodation, I'd recommend you stay in the historic center as it sounds like this is your first visit to Rome. Look for something near the Pantheon, Spanish Steps/Trevi, Piazza Navona/Campo de' Fiori, Colosseo/Monti, close in parts of Trastevere ... you'll find many threads on the topic of where to stay as well as hotels, etc. The biggest factor in accommodations will be your budget. Here's a good resource if you are on a budget: www.parlafood.com/visit-rome-on-a-budget/

2. Re: which airport in Rome

What do you mean when you say you are travelling to Rome from "Birmingham London"? As these are 2 different UK cities, which one are you actually travelling from?

At all events, if you are flying from London Heathrow or London Gatwick, it will be to Fiumicino, and Monarch also fly from Birmingham to Fiumicino.

Only if you are flying with Ryanair from London Stansted (or East Midlands airport, which is near Derby) would it be to Ciampino.

Whichever airport you fly to, of course they have transport to the city centre.

As quaminari says Birmingjam is not in London, they are about 120 miles apart, it would take nearly 2 1/2 hours to drive between the two. Look at www;skyscanner to find the best prices and decide where you want to fly from, and to which airport. Ciampino is usually used by the low cost carriers such as Ryanair
