What is Fiumicino Like?
Fiumicino was once a fishing village and still sees some fishing activity. Home to about 7,000 people, the balmy Mediterranean climate, cool summers with plenty of sea breeze, and pleasant spring and autumn makes it a very popular weekend retreat if you want to avoid the heat and chaos of the city. Staying at Fiumicino is recommended on the last night for Rome travelers flying out. The biggest attraction in the area is Ostia Antica, a fifteen minute ride away, which is an ancient Roman city that once stood on the Tiber's banks. The shoreline has since silted and moved three kilometers towards the sea and left the town high and dry, but the well-preserved ruins are a must-visit. There are also some nice Fiumicino beaches like the Mediterraneo, with clean sand and lovely blue sea. A long promenade and cafes make the shores very pleasant.
How to Get Along with Locals in Fiumicino
It may seem difficult to get to downtown Fiumicino from the international airport as queued taxis refuse to make the short journey. But don't give up if the first taxi refuses you - you can always get a rental car very easily. You'll find that a stay in Fiumicino is a wonderful way to have a relaxed vacation, especially refreshing after Rome's chaotic streets. Sit by the harbor under palm trees and watch the boats pass with some Grappa (a fragrant Italian brandy), and you'll fit right in with the pace of the town. The Porto di Traiano, where the Tiber flows into the sea, is wonderful for a morning walk. It's not so touristy, but a nice place for fresh seafood! Let Hotels.com find you the best Fiumicino hotels to enjoy the town and get away from Rome for a while.
