Once in Rome, Getting to Vatican City

From ATAC (Rome's public transportation company):

From Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci Airport: The trains of the regional railway Fr1 lead to the Trastevere station where one can take the trains of the Fr3 up to the San Pietro railway station; the Leonardo Express still provides the direct connection to Termini Rail Station, where one can commute to the subway A-line up to the station of “Ottaviano-San Pietro”.

From Ciampino Airport: The connection to the subway A-line at Anagnina is granted by the overland buses of Cotral. The nighttime works on the A-line of the roman subway have been suspended: the trains run regularly until 11:30 p.m., like those of the B-line.

Four extra shuttle buses have been added, leading to the Vatican starting from Termini Rail Station: Runs through Piazzale Ostiense, Piazzale Flaminio and Piazza dei Giureconsulti. They run without interruption 24 hours a day, like the buses of the lines 40 Express, 62 and 64. Other twelve lines, as well as eleven night buses, have increased their frequencies.
