Subway/bus/metro tickets can be purchased at any "Tabaccheria" (tobacconist's shop) at the Airport and Termini Station and from the automatic machines at the subway station (which is signposted and directly under Termini Station).

Local train to ORTE/FARA SABINA

There is another train connecting Fiumicino airport to central Rome - when you are at the airport train station look for the train with the destination "Orte" or "Fara Sabina". Every day from 5.57am until 11.27pm. It is slower (and cheaper) because it stops at some smaller local stations along the way and does not stop at Termini. Tickets cost € 8,00. Trains take about 30 minutes to reach Ostiense, from there you can walk underground to Piramide metro station for the Metro Line B (direction to Rebibbia) one stop to Circo Massimo. The entrance to FAO is on the right as you come up the steps from the subway station.
