The second choice, taking a public bus, is a little slower, but it's less expensive and gets you to the nearest metro station from the airport so the connection can in a fact be more convinient. From there, you may easily travel to any other part of town.

The bus stop is right in front of the terminal. ATAC bus number 520 will take You to the Cinecitta subway station on Orange Line and from there You can easily get to the Termini train station, Spagna or other main hubs. Bus number 720 also goes through the airport and will take you to the Blue Line subway station Laurentina. And as Romans say, all ways lead to Rome, even the blue line will take You to the center. You can even get off the subway in the historical top location of Colosseo which could be a great central station for You.

The price is €11 for a one-day ticket, €24 for a three-day ticket, and €36 for a seven-day ticket.
