Getting to Geneva College Rome Campus

Italian trainTo/From Fiumicino, take a taxi, prearranged airport shuttle, or train.

To/From Ciampino, take a taxi, prearranged airport shuttle, or airport bus.

Taxi or Airport Shuttle: 

You can catch a taxi or book a shuttle at the airport. However, it is best to arrange for a shuttle in advance over the Internet rather than subject yourself to having to find a taxi once you land. 

  • Taxi:  From FCO to the Campus expect to pay €40-50
  • Airport Shuttle:
    • Geneva usually uses Rome Airport Shuttle (about €18)
    • Other options include Roma Shuttle and AirPort Shuttle (fees vary) 
    • Once you exit baggage claim, look for a person holding a sign with your name on it. Make sure that you have your shuttle confirmation paperwork handy. Sometimes planes land earlier than the shuttle companies anticipate, so just wait until the driver arrives. If you don't meet up with the driver after 30-45 minutes, find the shuttle’s desk at the airport. 

Once you have your taxi or shuttle:

  • Tell the driver that you want to go to Via Nomentana, 333. The campus is located right across from the small street called Via Carlo Fea. The campus has a big double brown gate.
  • Have the driver pull up to the gate.
  • Step out and ring the buzzer (located on the right of the gate)
  • Ask the person who answers to open both sides of the gate—say “machina” and they will understand that you want the vehicle to bring you in. 
  • The reception desk is through the door on the right.
  • The gate is staffed from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. only. 
  • If you arrive after 8 p.m., please call the campus cell phone at 346-707-3562. 
  • Do not ring the bell before 7 a.m. or after 8 p.m. 

Airport Bus: Terravision Express Shuttle can be booked online and leaves regularly from Ciampino to the Termini and from the Termini to Ciampino. (approximately €7 one way or €12 round trip)

Train

Trains run every 30 minutes to and from FCO (approximately €14). Once you exit Baggage Claim, look for the signs directing you to the airport’s train station. Once at the station, you can purchase a ticket for the train at the Trenitalia desk or at one of the Biglietti Veloce self-service machines with a credit card or cash. Take the train in the direction of Roma Termini (this will take you to Rome’s main bus/train station). Follow the instructions for Public Transportation Connections from Roma Termini to Campus below.

Public Transportation Connections from Roma Termini to Campus

At the Station you will purchase a Metro pass (good for bus or subway) and board a bus or the Metro (subway) for campus. A Metro pass may be purchased at any of the Tabbachi shops (small coffee/snack shops/news stands) located throughout the Termini.  Metro passes are available for single trips, four days, seven days, or a month. 

Bus

  • Once you have purchased your pass, walk out of the Termini station toward the area where you see the buses waiting. (The large Trenitalia [Italian train system] desk faces this particular parking lot.)
  • Look for the 90 Express bus loading area, usually marked by a yellow dot with a 90 in the center.  Once on the bus, validate your pass in one of the yellow machines.  (The machines work just like a subway machine, don’t forget to take the pass out of the machine!) You do not need to show your pass to the driver unless he or she requests to see it. 
  • Once the bus leaves the station, you will need to pay attention to your location, because the bus stops are not marked. You will need to watch for landmarks.
  • Get off at the fourth stop after the bus passes the Porta Pia (this is a huge arched entrance into the city that is no longer used).   The fourth stop is at Via XXI Aprile.  The Embassy of Afghanistan is on the right.
  • Cross the street.
    • Turn left and walk approx 100 yards.
    • The campus has a big double brown/black gate. 
    • You must ring the bell to the right of the gate to gain entrance to the property. 
    • The gate is staffed from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. only. 
    • If you arrive after 8 p.m., please call the campus cell phone at 346.707.3562. 
    • Do not ring the bell before 7 a.m. or after 8 p.m. 

Metro

  • Once you have purchased your pass, follow the signs to the B line (the blue line) in the Termini. 
  • Take the B1 subway toward Conca D’Oro. (Note that two different trains run on the same B line track: the regular B line toward Rebibbia and the B1 toward Conca D’Oro.  Be sure to get on the subway marked B1.)
  • Exit the B1 at the Sant’ Agnese/Annibaliano stop.  Walk toward Via XXI Aprile in the direction of Via Nomentana. 
    • At the intersection of Via XXI Aprile and Via Nomentana, turn right. 
    • The campus has a big double brown/black gate. 
    • You must ring the bell to the right of the gate to gain entrance to the property. 
    • The gate is staffed from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. only. 
    • If you arrive after 8 p.m., please call the campus cell phone at 346.707.3562. 
    • Do not ring the bell before 7 a.m. or after 8 p.m.
