The name means little river. The town of "Fiumicino" should not be confused with its namesake, Fiumicino, a small river near Rimini.

Europe : Italy : Central Italy : Lazio : Fiumicino

Fiumicino is a city in Lazio. This city is on the coast near to Rome, and close to the airport that bears its name.


Fiumicino was originally a fishing village and is till an important fishing center. It is situated on the west coast of Italy, in the province of Rome. Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is close by and is more normally referred to as Fiumicino Airport these days, with the international code FCO. The town is home to approximately 60,000 inhabitants.

This region enjoys a Mediterranean climate similar to that of Rome, with occasional sea breezes to keep it cooler in summer. Spring and autumn are the best time to visit as the weather is most pleasant at this time. In the peak of summers, the temperature tends to regularly go over 35°C. Winters are mild.

Lately, it has also become a popular retreat for people from Rome. It is also a popular place for visitors to stay while visiting Rome. If you are flying out from Fiumicino airport it could be a pleasant place to stay your last night, avoiding the hassle of Rome's traffic on the way to catch your flight.

==Get in==

By plane

Downtown Fiumicino is located only a short drive away from the airport. However, taxis will probably refuse to take you there. They will probably have been queueing for two hours expecting at least a €40 fare to the center of Rome and will not want a €10 fare to Fiumicino.

By Boat

Battelli di Roma: A great way to go from Rome to Ostia and at a very reasonable rate. The boat picks up/drops off in Ostia Antica, Fiumicino's neighboring town.

By Train

The Roma-Lido station is also located in Ostia Antica and provides easy access in to Fiumicino from Rome.


Rome: The city of Rome is only a short train ride away from the Ostia Antica stop. Ostia Antica is only about a fifteen minute car ride from Fiumicino.

Ostia Antica: The ancient Roman city of Ostia was in antiquity situated at the mouth of the river Tiber, some 30 kilometres to the west of Rome. The shoreline moved seawards, due to silting, from the Middle Ages until the 19th century. Therefore Ostia is today still lying next to the Tiber, but at a distance of some three kilometers from the beach. Ostia is Latin for "mouth", the mouth of the Tiber. The river was used as harbour, but in the Imperial period two harbour basins were added to the north, near Leonardo da Vinci airport. The harbour district was called Portus, Latin for "harbour". Ostia is home to a collection of ruins waiting to be visited.


Fiumicino is on the Western coast of Italy, so it has beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean Sea. Ostia, Fiumicino's neighboring town, also has wonderful beaches. For those who wish to experience the historical wonder of Rome, Fiumicino is conveniently located about 30 minutes outside of Rome via train.
