From the railway station Tiburtina to the Rome B&B Little Italy Hostel

Between 1am and 6am, however, Rome Termini is closed and all trains come in at Rome’s second railway station, Tiburtina. Tiburtina is also one of Rome’s largest bus stations. The international budget bus company Eurolines arrives at Tiburtina and so do several Italian bus lines from the neighboring provinces.

Cheaper than taking a taxi (and sometimes faster than taking a taxi) is to take the Leonardo Express, a non-stop train from Fiumicino to the railway station Roma Termini. The price is €14 and the ticket can be bought, apart from at the regular ticket windows, also from newspaper stands and tobacco shops in the airport and the railway station. The train comes in at platform 24. Walk along the platform till you come to the main hallway and turn left, towards the Via Giolitti-exit. Follow the directions above (from Roma Termini).

By taxi from Ciampino and Fiumicino to Rome B&B Little Italy
As of October 1st, 2006 the rates from the two airports, Fiumicino and Ciampino, ought to be fixed.
The official rate from Ciampino Airport, where most of the budget airlines including RyanAir have their home base, to anywhere in the center of Rome (and both the B&B Little Italy Rome and the Hostel Chaplin Bed and Breakfast are definitely in the center of Rome) is 30 Euros.
The official rate from Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci Airport) to the center of Rome and the B&B Little Italy Hostel is 40 Euros, but at the moment there is a slight, typical Italian, problem. Taxi drivers based in Rome have to apply the 40€ standard rate, but taxi drivers based in Fiumicino, the small town by the airport itself, are not subject to this, essentially Roman, law and charge as much as 60 Euros. Make sure, therefore, to ask for the price before entering the taxi to the center of Rome.
By taxi from the railway stations of Rome to the B&B Little Italy Hostel
From the railway station of Tiburtina to Hostel Little Italy Bed & Breakfast ought to cost you something between 8 and 12€. Make sure that the driver turns on the taximeter (on rate 1).
To get to the Little Italy B&B from Rome Termini, we do not recommend that you take a taxi, since you probably arrive quicker on foot, and also because you could run the risk of being taken for an unasked for tour of the city before arriving at the bed and breakfast.
