Cheap flights to Rome
When in Rome, make like the Romans – and that means flicking a few coins in the Trevi Fountain and making a wish, chowing down on a succulent locally made pizza and hanging out in the Panthenon – and there is nothing too arduous about any of that. Travelling to Rome is a feast for the senses with the ancient city offering up a vast array of experiences that spans its historical past to present day in a thriving metropolis. Your travel album of Rome will most likely include pictures of the Colesseum, both inside and out, millions of selfies in the pretty Vatican city, Instagram-ing the carbohydrate-rich food you’ve found through the streets of Trastevere, and some necessary Facebook posts about people watching you’ve done in any of the hundreds of churches you’ve visited or while finding some treasures at the Campo dei Fiori Markets. Universal Traveller can find you the cheapest airfares it’s possible to snag and if you’re under 26, a student or teacher, we can get you scaling the Spanish Steps faster with our Student Flights.
Flying from Australia to Rome will have you arriving at Leonardo Da Vinci – Fiumicino International Airport (FCO). Jointly named after the great Italian polymath and the region it is located in, the airport is 35 kilometres southwest of Rome’s city centre. In 1961 it took over as Rome’s major and Italy’s largest airport. Ground transportation into the city centre consists of train, bus and taxis. The Leonardo Express train is the most popular and convenient leaving twice hourly on a 30-minute non-stop journey. The airport is also serviced by 5 bus companies with routes to all major destinations in greater Rome.
Flight paths to Rome from Australia will require a stopover in either Asia or the Middle East. From Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne, choose from Asian hotspots like Hong Kong, Shanghai or Bangkok. Alternative flight paths can give you an opportunity to explore the dazzling cities of Doha or Dubai in the Middle East. The average total flight time for these routes is approximately 21 hours. Perth to Rome with a connecting flight through Doha has a flight time of a whisker over 17 hours.
