Flight deals to Rome

Find cheap flight deals and fare sales to Rome from across Australia.

Rome is one of Europe’s most visited capital cities and also among the cheapest overall, with arguably the most to see. As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you’d struggle to see it all in a week – the city is like a giant outdoor museum. From the Colosseum to the Spanish Steps, the Eternal City has a treasure chest of sights on display. But the real beauty of Rome can be found in wandering around with a gelato in hand, grabbing a coffee in a side cafe, and filling up on authentic Italian pizza.

As a major European destination, there are frequent flight deals to Rome from Australia on one-stop routes. Rome is busy year-round, although the pace slows down in winter. Being more or less in the middle of the peninsula, the capital is also ideal for exploring Italy whether you’re heading south or north.

Rome insider flight tips

  • Australians will mostly find the lowest fares on flight deals to Rome with China Southern, China Eastern and Air China. These involve stopping once or twice in China and take an average of 30 hours from east coast Australia (and more like 40 hours from Perth), but the advantage for some travellers is that both main legs are about equal. Qatar, Etihad and Emirates have generally shorter total journey times and stop only once in the Middle East. It will take around 15 hours to get to the Middle East, and then only around 6 hours to Rome.
  • If you plan on travelling around in Europe then you might get a better flight deal being flexible about where you fly in and out of. In fact you might find lower flight fares to Paris or Amsterdam – some Asian carriers will fly to Rome via one of these anyway – so it is worth comparing.
  • Bear in mind if booking internal European flights that most international flights will land at Rome Fiumicino Airport (FCO), but most European low-cost flights will land at Rome Ciampino Airport (CIA).
  • Fiumicino, or Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport, gets very busy in the summer months of June to August. Allow for delays and security lines when planning your onward travel. There are multiple transport options to get from the airport so it’s not necessary to book in advance.

How to get from the airport

Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport (FCO) is Rome’s main international airport, located 25 kilometres from the city, and has three terminals. The fastest and best value transport method is the Leonardo Express train. Running between 6am and 11pm, it takes 30 minutes to Roma Termini, the city’s central transport hub, and leaves Fiumicino every 30 minutes. Alternatively, the metropolitan train connects the airport to stations like Ostiense and Trastevere and the Metro, but does not stop at Roma Termini. If you purchase a public transport pass, the metropolitan train will be covered, as will the Metro and bus services. The SIT bus goes to the Vatican area and finishes at Roma Termini, and other bus services are also available, all ending at Termini. You can buy tickets online, at a ticket machine or from a counter in the airport. Travelling by bus or taxi can take up to an hour, depending on traffic. All leave from outside arrivals.

There are plenty of metered taxis at the airport and it’s a fixed fare to the city centre and to Rome Ciampino Airport (CIA). This could work out cheapest if travelling in a group as the fixed fare is valid for up to four passengers including luggage. If you’re thinking of renting a car or scooter to get around, follow ‘Rent a Car’ signs to find the major car rental desks.
