  • Can i make it for 1h 45min transfering from Terminal 3 to Terminal1
    Mar 22, 2016
    I am coming from non schengen country. Let me know the steps that i should follow. thank you


    Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags? What airlines are you flying?


    In one reservation and my bags are checked in. Is Alitalia for both. thank you.


    Then you will just go through Schengen passport control, security, and to your departure gate.


    Can you tell me where should i take the bus from T3 to T1? Are often those buses and should i pay for it? Thank you


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 3
    Mar 18, 2016
    I will arrive into FCO, Terminal 1 and have to change to a flight in Terminal 3. Do I have to collect my bags in Terminal 1 and re-check them in Terminal 3? Thank you


    If both tickets are on the same reservation then you should not have to.


  • When does T5 FCO open?
    Feb 25, 2016
    We have a 9:40 AM direct flight to the US on AA with no checked bags. I know we go thru T5. When does it open? Hard to be there 3 hrs. ahead of time if it only opens at 7:00 and security doesn't open until 7:30 AM. Does anyone have experience with this situation? Thanks.


    If you're on the first flight I wouldn't be too worried about it being crowded. Get there around 7.

  • Meeting tip
    Feb 14, 2016
    I arrive in Rome at terminal 1, 20 minutes before my friends arrive at terminal 3. Any suggestions as to how and where we should meet to travel into the city together?


    Meet at the train station, it's sort of in the middle.


  • coming from Moscow to Cairo through alitalia do I need a transit visa?
    Feb 14, 2016
    coming from Moscow to Cairo through alitalia do I need a transit visa?


    and I have to change between t3 and t1


    What country are you a citizen of?


    Egyptian and I'm living in Russia


    This should be a sterile international to international connection which means you don't need a full Schengen transit visa and Egyptians are exempt from needing a Schengen Airport Transit visa, so you shouldn't need one.


    thank you so much


    I will be flying from Nairobi (Kenya) to London (UK) and i land at terminal 3 but i depart to London from terminal 1. I am a Kenyan citizen. Would i require a schengen visa to move from terminal 3 to terminal 1?


    Kenyans do not require an airport transit visa when making a "sterile" connection.


  • Security+Passport Control Wait Time at Fiumicino Terminal 3 At 6 A.M.
    Dec 20, 2015
    I get to Fiumicino Terminal 3 at 5:48 A.M. for a 7:10 A.M. flight. I have already checked in and have my boarding pass, but need to check-in my bags. How long is security and passport control at this hour? Have I allotted enough time for myself to get to boarding on time? I heard American citizens have a separate queue at security and passport control? Is this true? I am travelling to the U.S. via Istanbul on Turkish Airlines.


    I arrive at the airport by the FL1 Train.


  • Requirement of Visa and how how to spent time
    Nov 28, 2015
    Hello. I have alitalio flight to Atlanta on 3 rd january from Mumbai with 6 hrs of connecting time at Abu Dhabi and Rome.. Do need Visa at two places and how to spent 6 hrs..pl help.. Regards..


    If both tickets are on the same reservation then you won't need a Visa - you will be able to do a sterile transfer in Rome. Also you will not need a Schengen airport transit visa if you have a valid visa to visit/enter the US. You will just have to find something to do for 6 hours as you will not be allowed to leave the sterile area of the airport.
