Catania Ground Transportation
Two taxi companies serve the airport: Radiotaxi and Night Service, both of which charge per mile. You can contact each company directly to schedule your trip. If you catch a taxi outside the airport, make sure it has a working meter. Public transit in the form of the AMT Alibus is another option for travellers heading downtown.

The bus will take you to the city centre, and one of its stops is right outside the Catania Railway Station.
Enjoy a Meal

Transportation into Rome
The Leonardo Express, a direct train between the airport and Rome's city centre, is a popular and inexpensive way to get into town after your flight lands. Trains leave every thirty minutes, and the journey takes about a half hour. You can also opt to take the slower metropolitan train, which links up with the city's subway system, or catch a ride on one of the regular blue city buses or on the Terravision shuttle bus. Taxis are available outside the passenger terminals at the airport and cost a flat fee of forty euros for a ride to the city centre Rome. Six car rental companies also operate at the airport for passengers who prefer to drive themselves.
Weather in Rome
Summer highs in Rome average around 31°C, and lows average around 17°C. Winter highs usually stay in the low teens, while lows can drop to around 3°C. October and November offer pleasant weather, with average highs in the low 20s, but many businesses close during these months and rainfall is more prevalent than at other times of the year. Spring, which also has daytime highs in the 20s, is an ideal time to visit Rome.
The Pantheon and Coliseum are on the top of most travellers' lists when visiting Rome, but don't neglect to visit other ancient sites, such as the Roman baths and catacombs. Art lovers will want to check out the National Roman Museum, the National Gallery of Modern Art, and the Galleria Borghese. For many, a trip to Rome also wouldn't be complete without a stop at Trevi Fountain. Start your trip off right by booking your flight to Rome with ebookers.
