    Bad experience



    The airport was closed between 12:00-4:00 in the morning. So you get to stay in the street with a lot of people and two army men. If you have a 6:30 flight, the only other option is to get a cab- which is at least 30 euros

    Ciampino update – avoid at all costs



    (Guest Review by Marco) I had slept at CIA before, but last night it was the first time in which I saw the airport lockdown actually implemented. Around 30/40 passengers have been ushered outside in near freezing temperatures between 00.30 (closure of arrivals terminal) and 03.50 (actual opening of departure terminal). Might be feasible in summertime and/or if you have a sleeping bag, but too harsh for me. Next time I'll take a bed in a dorm at Termini.

    Escape this airport



    Departures – The worst experience I had in my life. I suppose that me and all the people who were there this horrible night were not the first and won't be the last, who were thrown out from the airport after midnight. This is the reason I am writing this review, hopping that others won't experience the same inhuman attitude. Me and my boyfriend went to the airport at 24:00,since we had an early morning flight. When we entered we were told that the airport is closing and that we have to go outside and wait till 4:00. We and many other people who had come early were literally thrown out of the airport, while the staff remained inside and all the lights were on. Now imagine people checked out from their hotels earlier in order not to be late, because transportation to the airport is just awfully organised and when came were told that should wait 4 hours outside in winter at night. At least they could announce that the airport is closed during that hours, because this is not something usual that people should know. (Ex. in Switzerland the airport is being closed, but they don't throw out people like rubbish late at night on cold winter days.) And what they showed to us as an announcement was a small piece of paper on the window. Seriously you believe that when a tourist arrives in the airport and passes the doors, after he goes back to find that small sheet of paper on the window?! Are you serious?! Let's be honest you put it not to make people aware, but to say: " Oh, look here is a tiny sheet of paper that says that we are closed". I would like to see the Manager/ Director whoever of that hotel and ask if he himself has seen that paper. This is a inhuman behaviour, letting people, most importantly children outside, when there is no place to go nearby, there are no taxis and no buses and it is so cold that the best option is just to get a cold. Disappointed so much, they ruined all the good impression one gets at the beginning. So immoral!

    If you arrive in this airport, don't rush



    Due to poor review on this site regarding sleeping in Ciampino, I decided to leave in the afternoon. However, I suspected nothing about arrival until I arrived in Ciampino with tight schedule for some business in Rome. You see, there are at least 2 bus company that serve transfer to Termini (Sit-bus, Terravista, and I don't know the other), but there was no sign of where to wait for which company. Upon asking for ticket on the office inside the terminal, the response was very rude and I decided to just wait on the line. Apparently, the bus line is first come first served basis. It means passengers who bought tickets online doesn't have any guarantee of getting a seat on the bus. Due to the ridiculous line, you need to wait only on 1 line until the bus come because if you move to the line where the bus have arrived you will be stuck in the airport. They suppose to have a better management on this, because there is no shelter whatsoever on the bus stand. I had to stand there for 2 hours, missing my appointments, and drenched in sweat on a neverending line f new arrival
