Hi ~ my son is traveling from Canada to Florence via Rome. He is flying two Air Canada flights, arriving in Rome for a 3 hour layover and then taking Alitalia from Rome to Florence. My questions are: does he arrive, go through immigration, pick up checked luggage and then go to get boarding pass for Alitalia? Or, do they get luggage prior to going through immigration/customs? Or, will luggage be checked through to Florence? Should he look for luggage in Rome just in case? If so, where does he find out where his luggage is in Rome? He is 21. First trip overseas alone.
Am flying from JFK TO ROME and have an hour and half before my next flight (different airline-Vueling) to Split, Croatia-will I have to go thru immigration and or customs and will I have enough time?

So I land at FCO at 2:30 pm with Turkish Airlines, and my next flight is 4:30 pm to Bari with Alitalia.
Will I need to collect my bags and check in again for my Bari flight? or will I be in transit and my bags go straight to Bari. I will have to change terminals to catch the Alitalia flight.
Please let me know how long this may take and if 2 hours are enough.

Alitalia from Tunis arrives in Rome at 1:20 p.m. and I have to connect on another Alitalia flight to Athens that departs at 2:50 p.m. These are two separate one-way tickets and Alitalia will not combine both reservations saying I have to pick up my luggage and re-check for my Athens flight. Is there enough time to clear immigration, customs and re-check to Athens.

I understand the Tunis flight will arrive in Terminal 3. Which terminal does the Athens flight depart from?

Thank you for any help.

Arriving from a cruise at 9:30. One couple going on TAP to Milan at 11:45, the other couple going on Ryan Air to Barcelona at 3:00. How long will it take us to get through customs and what is the procedure? Thanks
Arriving Alitalia from Canada, connecting to Pisa (same ticket) in 1.5 hours. Will we make it?
Yes, that should be enough time.
American Airlines moved my departure up to 11:10 AM in Rome. I'm flying from Athens Greece. Connecting in Rome. My flight from Athens arrives at 10:05. My departure on American Airlines to Philadelphia is at 11:10. Can I make that connection?
I forgot to say I was flying in from Athens on Aegean airlines. I have the tickets American Airlines. No checked bags. Both going in and out of terminal three. Just different airlines. Trying to figure out if I must go through passport control question
You will go through Schengen Exit Passport control. You have just enough time if the flight from Athens is on-time.
I am a US Citizen flying Alitalia TLV>FCO 1030AM-1:25PM and connecting FCO>VCE same day 2:30-3:35PM.
The reservations are on the same ticket.

Will I clear customs & immigration in Rome or in Venice?
Also, will I have enough time to go between flights, and if so, will I arrive and depart from the same terminal in FCO?
I am booked on a through-tickets, so my bags should be sent directly to VCE.
You will go through passport control in Rome. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
thank you.
is AZ 4715 considered a domestic flight then, with no customs activity in VCE after deplaning?
I am flying American Air into FCO on Thursday, Oct. 5 arriving at 7:35 AM. I want to fly from FCO to Naples on Alitalia Flight 1263 leaving at 9:45 AM. Will I have time to get from American Air to Alitalia?
With checked bags I don't think that's really enough time.
Thanks! I thought as much but need clarification.
