From Fiumicino Airport (Leonardo da Vinci):
Follow the signs for 'ai treni' to the platform and buy a ticket for the non-stop train to Termini (Leonardo Express).

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.

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!
