Travelling on the Leonardo express

If you’re coming from Fiumicino Airport, you should sit on the left-hand side of the train to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Vatican City and the capital. If you travel on Saturday, you could even see the papal train running on the Vatican Railroad tracks, the shortest international railway in the world.

The Vatican Railway is in fact just over a kilometre long and connects the station of Roma San Pietro with the Vatican City. Only 200 metres of the railway are in Vatican territory and the railway ends in the splendid Vatican City Station built in the 1930s and used by several Popes for their trips to Italy.

If you have to travel from Roma Termini to the Airport, we suggest you sit on the right side of the train to admire Rome and the Vatican one last time.
