About The Airport

Rome's main airport - also known as Leonardo da Vinci International Airport - is one of the busiest in Europe. Although it has 3 terminals, only Terminals 1 and 3 are currently open. Terminal 2 is closed to enable work on expanding Terminal 1. Airport food isn't always to everyone's taste, but Rome came 10th in the 2018 Skytrax World's Best Airport Dining Experience, voted for by customers from around the world.


Unlimited free Wi-Fi is available at the airport.
