Where to stay near Fiumicino Airport

by Amy Knauff

We normally advise against staying near the airport: there are only big chain hotels; there’s not a lot to do or see, as the airport is kind of in the middle of nowhere; and it can be expensive considering that, if you don’t have a car, you really have no choice but to eat all your meals in the (inevitably overpriced) hotel restaurant.

Recently, though, we’ve come across a B & B that may have made us change our minds. While Fiumicino still isn’t exactly a hotspot of exciting things to do, it could be the perfect spot for an easy, relaxing night before you have to take a morning flight.

Bed & Breakfast L’Isola is actually located 2 kilometers away from Fiumicino/Leonardo da Vinci airport, but they offer a shuttle service to/from the airport. It’s also close to the dock for the fast boats to Sardegna, close to the Nuova Fiera di Roma (a huge convention center that hosts a number of major events throughout the year), and some historic Roman sites like Ostia Antica, Porto di Claudio, and the Isola Sacra Necropolis.

Located in a small private “villetta” with garden, the B & B has its own independent entrance and offers clean, spacious rooms with private bathroom, air-conditioning, TV, and free Internet. For those who are driving, internal parking is available.

Walk down the street from the B & B 100 meters and you’ll be at the edge of the sea, so you can enjoy a fresh sea breeze and walk along the sand on your last night in Rome, a good way to relax and unwind from the craziness of Rome before you have to take a long plane ride home.
