  • 1.5 hours lay over. Coming from Canada
    Oct 5, 2015
    Hi there, I am arriving at FCO from Canada at 1pm on terminal 3 and have a flight to Madrid at 2.30pm from terminal 1. Does it leave me enough time to catch the next flight with the passport control, security etc. Both flights are on same reservation with Alitalia Societa . Thanks


    That should be enough time.




  • US Airways to Vueling connection
    Sep 30, 2015
    Land at 9:45 am from Charlotte NC and next flight to Catania on Vueling leaves at 11.35. I think both flights use Terminal 3. Do I have to leave gate area and go through customs and re-enter to catch the next flight? Will I have time to make the connection if so?


    You will go through Schengen passport control when walking from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thanks for your prompt reply.


  • Terminal 1 to terminal 3 Transfer
    Sep 24, 2015
    Arrival from Catania on Alitalia into Terminal 1. Need to get to terminal 3 for Alitalia connection to New York. (short time) I understand that there is a shuttle for this somewhere in terminal one. Where is this shuttle located?


    You can just walk from Terminal 1 to 3.

    I am looking into taking a flight from FCO to Venice at the end of October. I land in FCO at 12:50 and the flight to Venice is 2:30 -ish, is that do-able to would it be too crazy to make the second flight. We are flying from Boston, USA


    That should be possible if both flights are on the same reservation.

    I am flying from NY to Tel Aviv. Arrive to terminal 3 and depart from terminal 1 with 50 minutes connecting time. Is it enough time? Thanks, Ehud


    It should be enough time if both tickets are on the same reservation and your flight from New York is on-time.


  • Availible shuttle
    Sep 21, 2015
    A shuttle runs from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5. Does one run from Terminal 1 to 5 and how often? If not does one have to walk to Terminal 3?


    You have to walk to Terminal 3. Terminals 1, 2, and 3 are all very close on the roadway side.

  • enough time to transfer terminals, security, baggage
    Sep 16, 2015
    I am flying from Toronto to Rome landing in terminal 3 at 10:45 am and connecting to a flight to Catania from terminal 1 at 1:00. Is there enough time to do this? Will I have to go get my bag and go through security again or will my bag be checked through? How much time does it take to transfer terminals? What is the best way to do this? Thank you for your help. LDG


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You won't have to do anything with your bag. Just go to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen passport control in rome.


  • Connection from Spain and an in-Italy connection
    Sep 17, 2015
    Hi, my husband and I are flying on separate dates but each have 1.5 hours between flights at the airport, presumable from separate terminals. Scenario 1 - my husband will be flying from Barcelona to Rome, then connecting on to Toronto, Canada with 1.5 hours in between. Scenario 2 - I will be flying from Venice to Rome then connecting on to Toronto, Canada with 1.5 hours in between. As one is from Spain and the other is within Italy, will the time we have be enough? I don't think we will need to re-check baggage, but I'm concerned about security and/or passport checks along with switching terminals. Thank you!


    The only check you will have to go through is Schengen Exit passport control which is a cursory process. You should have enough time if your inbound flights are on-time.


    Thank you!

    Hi there, I am considering booking a flight originating from Venice to FCO, then on to Toronto (Pearson), all on Alitalia. One option gives me a 1 and a half hour layover and I was wondering if that was enough time to get between terminals, considering I probably don't have to get luggage. Please advise. Thanks!


    Yes. That is probably enough time.

  • Connecting flights different reservations
    Sep 14, 2015
    I'm flying from toronto, Canada to Rome through air transit. I land at 11:40AM and have another flight to Budapest at 12:40 PM with Vueling so a one hour lay over. Both these flights are in terminal 3. I have no baggage and just have a carry on. These are 2 separate reservations. I will already have a boarding pass printed for my flight to Budapest as I will check online prior to my flight. Does any one have any tips the fast way to navigate around terminal 3 to get to my second gate? Will I have to go through customs after landing and then go back through security to get to my gate for my Budapest flight? Any help is appreciated! This is on a Friday morning/afternoon. Thanks!


    You will have to go through Schengen passport control but you should not have to go through security. This will be a very difficult transfer.


  • information and directions

    I arrive in Rome from the US in terminal 3. How do I get to terminal 1 to got to Ancona?


    Just follow the signs to Terminal 1. You will go through Schengen passport control on your way.


    That's what logic would narrate, but last May the signs lead to nowhere. Thank you for your reply.

    pi arrive to terminal 5 and i have connection to terminal 1 how i do it


    There's a shuttle bus. if you don't have at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours, I think this will be very difficult.
