International flights to Rome will disembark at Rome Airport Fiumicino, the largest airport in Italy. Though its official title is Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport, the airport is commonly referred to by locals as just Fiumicino. Based on its number of passengers, Rome Fiumicino Airport is the sixth busiest airport in Europe and the 25th busiest in the world.
Fiumicino is located 35km southwest of the city’s historic centre. The easiest and fastest way to reach Rome’s centre from the airport is via the Leonardo Express train which travels non-stop for 30 minutes and costs 14 Euros. For a cheaper yet slower option, catch the FR1 line to one of the main stations in Rome for 8 Euros or board one of the city buses departing Terminals 2 and 3.
Before you go: If the phrase ‘parla inglese’ means very little to you, then now is the time to start brushing up on some Italian. While you don’t need to know an Italian opera off by heart, simply saying the words ‘pizza’ and ‘espresso’ in an Italian accent won’t get you very far either. Instead, enrol in an Italian class or bury yourself in a phrase book and get to know your sinistral (left) from your destra (right). It’s also not a bad idea to download a language app on your phone either, for those times when you get caught out and forget how to order another round; Un altro giro, per favour.
Another thing to consider is what you are going to do when it’s time to pay for that round. To avoid being locked out of your account, let your bank know in advance when you will be in Rome. It’s also a good idea to exchange some money into Euros before you go so when you land you can head straight to your accommodation. Once you’re out and about sightseeing, avoid carrying huge amounts of cash with you and instead access your funds as you go with a travel money card.
Lastly but most importantly, don’t leave for Rome without having travel insurance. It may be the last thing on your mind when planning your trip but accidents and emergencies can happen and it’s better to be safe than sorry. Talk to your Student Flights consultant about what coverage is best suited to you.
What to bring: As Hollywood movies would suggest, much like Paris, Rome is quite a stylish city. Those clichéd images of fashionable couples wearing sleek leather shoes and tailored jeans scooting around the streets actually exist. In order to fit in with the crowd, make an effort to dress for both comfort and style. Keep things simple by packing tailored t-shirts, a good pair of jeans, a jacket and a comfortable pair of leather shoes. If you’re travelling in the summer season, don’t forget to bring your bathers as well as a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses.
With a history spanning over two and a half thousand years, Rome is home to numerous places to see. While some sites such as the Colosseum and the Pantheon are obvious, these are just the tip of the gelato. Avoid being overwhelmed with what to see by bringing a guide book with you. Opt for one with maps to avoid getting lost along the way.
Another item you won’t want to leave home without is the appropriate power adaptor. Most outlets in Europe require two circular prongs and have a voltage of 230-240 so pack accordingly so you can charge your phone and electronics during your stay.
During your flight: Flights from Sydney to Rome usually take around 23 hours or more, depending on the airline and stop over. Most airlines will stop over in either the Middle East or Asia.
In order to make the long-haul flight enjoyable, most airlines will provide you with meals, in-flight entertainment and comfort items such as pillows and blankets. If you’re a light sleeper, consider bringing your own neck pillow and noise cancelling head phones to help you get comfortable and enjoy a good night’s sleep.
When you are awake, take some time to walk around the plane to stretch your legs. There are also a range of in-flight stretches you can do while in your seat to improve circulation and avoid any discomfort. Feel good during your flight by drinking plenty of water and avoid dehydrating drinks such as coffee and alcohol.
