Spotting At Rome Fiumicino

Tue Mar 19, 2013 3:13 pm


I am going to Rome in May.

I am hoping to do some spotting whilst there.

Please can anyone suggest suitable locations, (landside or airside).

Also, can anyone confirm the situation about taking pictures from the fence in Italy.

Many thanks.

You won't be bothered taking photos from the perimeter. There's a petrol station which has a (free) roof terrace, but it's probably a bit too distant for May; there are however other good spots running the length of 34L/16R (which is used by int'l and non-EU traffic). Trouble is you're going to need a car to explore the perimeter.

I'm afraid I can't tell you anything about the terminals because I flew into/out of Ciampino. If you need any further help just ask.
