Airports in Rome
Leonardo da Vinci/Fiumicino International Airport - Rome’s main airport is modern, large, rather efficient, and well connected to the centre of the city by public transportation. However, late-night arrivals may limit you to an irregular bus into town unless you can afford a taxi.
Ciampino International Airport - Located to the southeast of the capital, this is the city’s low-cost airline airport, serving Easyjet, Ryanair and Wizzair flights, among others. This small airport is closer to the city centre than Fiumicino but has no direct train connection.
Many modes of transportation are available in and around Rome. For more information please visit: www.turismoroma.it
The Organizing Secretariat cannot accept responsibility for accidents or damage to participants or accompanying persons before, during or after the Congress. Participants are urged to make their own arrangements with respect to travel and health insurance.
