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". It is slower (and cheaper) because it stops at some smaller local stations along the way but does not stop at Termini. Use the Tiburtina station stop to reach the center. Trains leave approximately every 20 minutes (every hour on Sunday) and cost €4,70. They take 46 minutes to reach Tiburtina.
