From Fiumicino Airport (Leonardo da Vinci):

You can purchase from either the ticket window, vending machines, or tobacco store near the platform. The Leonardo Express leaves every 30 minutes and the journey is about 30 minutes.
A slightly cheaper (but slower) option is to take local train that has the final destination of either Orte or Fara Sabina. It will stop at a few small local stations heading into Rome, but it does not stop at Termini Train Station. You need to get off at Tiburtina station (about the eighth stop), and then follow the directions ‘from Tiburtina’ and then ‘from Termini’. Trains leave approximately every 15-30 minutes and takes one to one-and-a-half hours.
Important: Don’t forget to validate your ticket with the little orange or yellow boxes before you get on the train!
If you take a taxi, it is highly recommended to take it from official airport taxi stand, not private ones. Depending on the traffic, the journey should take 30-40 mintues and cost 40 to 45.
