Slept here last week undisturbed in Terminal 3 , third floor, bring a mattress or similar and you have a good sleep on the ground. -Fremantlefred

In July 2016, a traveller with 14 hour layover was told to leave the airport. Security said "You are not allowed to stay inside the airport if your flight does not leave on the same day."

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down of what travellers have reported to us during their time at Rome Fiumicino Airport.

What to Expect

  • This is an older airport that had renovations in the 2000s. There are four terminals: T1, T2, T3, and T4. The eating and shopping options vary depending which terminal you’re in.
  • Airport staff are generally tolerant of overnight travellers trying to sleep.
  • There are 24-hour eateries available, both Landside and Airside. See Food & Drinks in the airport guide below.
  • Plan your layovers carefully here! In July 2016, a traveller with a 14 hour layover was told to leave the airport, since they were European citizens who could leave the airport without problems.
  • Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • Airside: Lounge style chairs have been spotted airside near gate H3. Based on travellers’ reports, there are some decent seating options near the B and D gates.
  • Landside: there aren’t too many seating options and armrests are a problem and the floor may be your only option. Most of the floor is tiled, so if you want to stretch out bring something for warmth or comfort.
  • Restaurants close at night, and some have benches and comfortable chairs near them you can grab overnight.
  • The airport can be cold and bright, so bring layers and a sleep mask/eyeshades
  • For uninterrupted sleep, several hotels are located at or near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • Economy class travelers can buy a pass to relax in several airport lounges; showers are available in some. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.
