photoTips on traveling in Italy:

If you plan to drive in Italy, read our articles on driving in Europe and car rentals: when to rent, when to lease.

If you're touring Italy by train, read our article on European rail passes, which will help you decide whether a pass will save you money and which type of pass you should buy.


Rome Fiumicino Airport
Our illustrated four-page article has up-to-date information on Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci Airport's terminals and check-in procedures, along with useful Web links. Also see our illustrated article about the Leonardo Express and commuter trains between Fiumicino and Rome, and our step-by-step guide to using Trenitalia's ticket machines.

If you're flying Ryanair, easyJet, Wizz Air, or a charter carrier to Rome, read our Ciampino Airport ground transportation article for advice on reaching the city.

Airports of Rome
Aeroporti di Roma's official Web site is geared more to shoppers than to travelers, but it has some practical information about Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) and Ciampino Airports. If you have an early-morning flight from FCO, consider staying at the Hilton Rome Airport, which is connected to the terminals by a covered elevated walkway.
