Via Nazionale is the main avenue of
the City Center.
The homes of the noble Romans were situated
here during the Imperial times. The main historical sites of the city
are only few steps away from the hotel Getting to town from the Leonardo
da Vinci airport (Fiumicino) When arriving Rome, at the "Leonardo da
Vinci" airport in Fiumicino, a little town by the seaside, 20 km. (12.5
miles) west of Rome, there are two possibilities of transportation taxi
outside the customs you are in the main arrival lobby. Follow the arrows
and signs to the taxi station, located on the terminal forecourt, which
is outside and at the same floor of the check out area. You have to
queve sometimes, but it is always a fast procedure. The average fare
for a taxi ride to the centre of Rome is about 50 Euro (approx. 45$
US). If you have many suitcases a fee will be charged to you in addition
to the meter fare in the range Make sure that the taxi is an official
one, and beware of nonofficial taxies or drivers that with various excuses
(nicer car, executive service, limousine car) or simply taking advantage
of the fact that you ignore the real transfer cost, are able to dry
out the cash in your wallet and charge you up to 300 Euro or more (approx.
250$ US). These companies basically offer a rental car service with
a driver from the airport to downtown. Anyway, if you for any reason
are not able to find a regular yellow or white taxi, make sure that
you agree the price without any possibility of misunderstanding before
accepting the service (i.g. require a transportation voucher with the
company details and the services included in the fare).
the lobby, which is located on the 1° floor, look for the signs to the
train station. You cannot miss it, elevators and moving walkways will
bring you there. You are not allowed to put trolleys with luggage on
the walkways, but you can roll them along the corridors next to them.
Once you get at the Terminal take the train to Stazione Termini and
it takes only 30 minutes to get into Rome. The ticket cost 9 Euro (approx.
8.00$ US) and can be purchased at automatic vending machines or news
stands and at train ticket counters. From the train station you can
easily reach the Hotel Miami with a 10 minutes walk, or with a taxi
(cost 8/10 Euro approx. 8.00$ US) or with bus n°64.
Getting in town by car
use to say that "All roads lead to Rome" After having left the highway
follows the sign to GRA ( the ring road that circles Rome). The direction
you take on the GRA depends on where you are coming from Coming from
North: get off the GRA at exit Salaria ( towards the center) and follow
signs to city centre. Coming from South: get off the GRA at take exit
Appio S.Giovanni and follow signs to city centre. Coming from West:
get off the GRA at exit Aurelia and follow signs to city centre. Coming
from East: get off the GRA at exit Tiburtina and follow signs to city
centre. A map of the city would then be very useful. You can purchase
one at any newspaper kiosk. Do not panic if you miss the correct exit,
be aware that any other exit toward the center will bring you down town.
