How to Reach
The main airport is Leonardo da Vinci in Fiumicino, about 30 kilometres southwest of the city. The additional airport is Ciampino, where most national, and some international flights arrive. It lies about 15 kilometres southeast of the city. You can simply get a bus from the airport that will drop you to a stop close to your hotel or the central station in less than an hour. The buses are comfortable and cheaper than taxis. There’s also the Leonardo Express train that will take you from the airport into the main city. Stop by at the Information Centre and ask for the stop closest to your destination.
The main road joining Rome to the north and south of Italy is the Autostrada del Sole, which joins with the ring road circling the city. If you plan to drive anywhere in Italy, you will require an international driving licence.
Rome is well connected by rail to all the main cities in Italy and Europe. The main railway station is Roma Termini. If you plan to travel to towns outside of Rome, it would be best to book a seat earlier rather than wait in lines at the station. You will have to go and make a reservation at the station at least a day before you plan to travel.
Economy of Rome
Rome is the main European Union and international financial, cultural, and business centre. Rome's trade is 0.1% of world financial trade. With a 2005 GDP of €94.376 billion (US$121.5 billion), the city produces 6.7% of the national GDP after Milan which provides 10%, and its unemployment rate, dropped from 11.1% to 6.5% between 2001 and 2005, is now one of the lowest rates of all the European Union capital cities. Rome produces +4.4% yearly and continues to produce at a higher rate in comparison to any other city in the rest of the country. This means that were Rome a country, it would be the world's 52nd richest country by GDP, near to the size to that of Egypt. Rome also had a 2003 GDP per capita of €29,153 (US$39,412), which was second in Italy, (after Milan), and is more than 134.1% of the EU average GDP per capita. Also, Rome hosts the head offices of the vast majority of the major Italian companies and organizations, as well as the head office of 3 of the world's 100 largest companies: Enel, Eni, and Telecom Italia.
