There is an Italian Public Transport System
and so that you don’t get a heavy fine,
after one hour the tickets for the buses and the subway

The best transportation when arriving at the Leonardo
da Vinci/Fiumicino Airport will be a train.
The airport is 19 miles from the center of Rome. On
the train there is a non-stop express to Termini Station.
That is the central rail station, and a train to Tiburtina
Station on the east side of Rome. As for taxis, they
say you’ve never seen so many people wanting
to drive you to Rome, but advice is to only use the
yellow or white taxis they are the best ones and really
the only ones that should be. Travel time to get to
the city from the airport will be 40 to 60 minutes.
