Rome Airport, officially referred to as the Leonardo da Vinci International Airport (IATA Code: FCO) is the sixth busiest airport in Europe and the largest one in Italy. Each year, more than 37 million passengers pass through Rome Airport on to domestic and international destinations. Despite being named Rome Airport, the historic city is located 35 kilometers away!
Rome Airport was officially opened in 1961 and has four runways to accommodate heavy passenger traffic. Four terminals are featured at Rome Airport to direct passengers to low cost airlines, international flights and select airline carriers.
Many passenger services are available through the four terminals and may easily be found with ample signs and notifications. Guests have the use of various information kiosks ideally located throughout the terminals to provide directions to car hire desks, security, restaurants, shops – selling international and domestic goods – and lounges.

Rome is one of the most traveled destinations in the world, so it’s important to reserve transportation before arriving in the city. Pre-booking is recommended through the various car hire websites or by completing travel arrangements over the telephone. Rental desks are not open 24-hours a day, so a visit to an off-site car hire office might be necessary to pick up car hires after hours.
