  • Worst experience ever!



    Pros: Military presence to take care of people outside the airport.

    Cons: Everything, the airport sucks.

    Main and only terminal. I had to take a flight EAM from Ciampino to To Madrid. So I took the last bus from Termini to the ariport. When I arrived there, I found interesting a lot of people sleeping outside the airport at a little piazza, so I went ahead and walked to the main entrance with the surprise that they don’t allow anyone to sleep inside the airport and it was obvious because is a really small terminal which has basic services. They allowed us to get into the terminal around 5 or 6 am, bathrooms were still closed. There’s only one or two places to buy food and to make it even worst, you can charge your phone or electronic device at a common charge station which is to the beginning of the waiting chairs so certainly, you have to keep watching your phone or else, it may get lost.

    Still the same



    Pros: It is save, two army men is near the sleeping passengers

    Cons: Even if it is summer, we are quite cold after a night outside. There are no toilets after closing the airport.

    The airport is closed from 12 to 4 in the night. You can sleep near the airport outside, but only in the hot summer. It is safe.

    Not a good option



    Pros: Quite comfortable chairs

    Cons: The airport closes from 00:30 till around 3:30

    The fact that the airport closes is quite a problem if you want to sleep there (or not even sleep, but just stay and wait for your flight). What other users wrote is true, but I feel obliged to point one thing – an incredible rudeness of the airport personel. If can fully understand that the closure of the airport was not their idea, but the way they act towards people is very unpleasent. I still can’t shake out of my head the image of a security staff member literally kicking a young women sleeping on the floor. He could just touch her forearm to wake her up, but he just kicked her. Later on I’ve heard that she was pregnant, but I don’t know if that’s true. Anyway – you should not act like this towards anyone, especially a woman. Quite shameful it was. Bad ending of a rather nice experience in the wonderful city of Rome…

    Sleeping at night outside is impossible during winter



    Pros: Wifi , easy to navigate

    Cons: Airport closes at night - sleeping at night is impossible during winter

    So, I will repeat what most people already have mentioned, that the airport closes between 00:30 and 04:00 am. I guess, passengers should ask before and be informed about that, but nevertheless that remains a very negative aspect of this airport, that’s why my rating is so low. I tried to sleep outside , but that was i impossible, even with 4 layers of clothes and a coat. Wifi is powerful, so I give one star for that. Toilets were also clean. Overall, if you are young (I would say between 18-30) and do not mind not to sleep between 00:30-04:00, it is possible to stay at the airport (to be exact outside the airport). If you have children or are older (60+) I would not recommend it.

    Mobile Charge



    Pros: Many plugs and also optional USB

    Cons: Only one spot

    Inside the main terminal and in front of the Change or Bureau of Exchange I found a Recharging station with many plugs and also USP input, the electricity worked pretty well and charged my phone from 35% to 65% within 20 minutes.
