Rome Fiumicino Airport

The Rome Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport (FCO) handles most of Rome’s international traffic, making it a key hub for the city’s tourist industry. Having been established in 1960s, Rome’s premier airport has gradually seen its transiting passengers rise to around 40 million people per year. It is one of Europe’s most active transit centres, offering flights to destinations all over the world, and a convenient port for travellers wanting to discover the treasures of ancient Rome.

The airport has several information desks you can utilise, as well as a comprehensive list of amenities. You’ll find ATMs, currency exchange, a chapel, a business centre, and free WiFi throughout the terminals. Added to that, the dining options here are very good, with wine bars, snack counters, bistros, fast food restaurants, and quaint cafes. Passengers will also be able to while away the time in designer boutiques, duty-free outlets, pick up treats, souvenirs, or travel goods.

You won’t find direct flights from Australia to Rome, as all journeys will require one or two layovers, but there are plenty of airlines that fly routes between these two countries. These carriers include Qantas, Virgin Australia, Air Canada, American Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Air China, Korean Air, China Eastern, Thai Airways, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Emirates, Air India, Etihad Airways, China Airlines, Asiana Airlines and British Airways. Expect flights to be routed through cities like Dubai (DXB), Singapore (SIN), Bangkok (BKK) or Doha (DOH).

Travel Information

· Many travellers coming into Rome choose to hire a car and explore the city surrounds, this can be done through Skyscanner with our search tool, or when you land at the airport’s Torre Uffici building near the arrivals area. You’ll find that Avis, Auto Europa and Budget all have offices here. The drive is about 25km, and around half an hour in duration. Take the A91, and then take the Roma Centro exit. This will lead you onto the Via della Magliana, which you should follow until you see two lanes turning right onto Lungotevere di Pietta Papa. Cross the Tiber River, and you will be in the centre of town.

· There is an express rail service that runs every half hour directly into Rome’s central station. The fare is set at a reasonable 14EUR ($20), and takes around 30 minutes.

· Buses into Rome are at a much cheaper rate of 5EUR ($7), but can be substantially slower. Often, taking a private airport transfer can be more convenient, especially when you are travelling with small children or in a group.
