Terminal 3 - I had a 20 hour wait airside in Rome Fiumicino due to weird flight patterns. It was too cold to go outside (I only had my carry on luggage) and I'm too cheap to pay the 60e for the hotel so decided to sleep it off. I asked the AlItalia desk and they advised me to stay around the G gates area of terminal 3 since it's more roomy than the H gates area. Plenty of space, hardly anyone else there. There are a lot of reclining metal seat things that are like mini beds, they have black mattresses on them that can be removed. I took 3 of them and just tried to find a warm place in the terminal - there was none. unfortunately. I ended up in the (very clean) disabled toilet but it was still freezing. Slept maybe 1 hour during the whole period. Wifi is free and really good though, and there are plugs everywhere. I had my comp so just streamed films which isn't actually too bad. I had lounge access but they all close at 11:30. The AlItalia lounge in G gate area is superior - it even has showers that can be unlocked with a coin, and look like they've never been used (but they work great). If you have some warm clothes, bring them and you'll be fine. The security even checked on me in the disabled toilet but left me alone and just asked if I was OK. Very nice people.

Facebook Tips

Eduardo J (29 Jul 2012): I just slept there the a couple of weeks ago, you have to stay in the T2 since all the other terminals close during the night, upstairs there are some benches where you can fit nicely if you're smaller than I am, I opted for my sleeping bag downstairs near the last entrance to the right, no one bothered me and nearby you can find the only power outlets in the airport.
