First international Trip on a Plane - Leonardo da Vinci Airport!

1

Yes, to get to Rome I had to cross Simon Bolívar airport and then I arrived to Barajas, but only when I was coming back home I got the chance to snap around Fiumicino (FCO) on redscale film!

Leonardo da Vinci airport, also known as Fiumicino after its location, is the largest in Italy and the one I was in for my tookoff from il Belpaese.
It’s named after one of the greatest geniuses of human history: Leonardo da Vinci, who designed the first prototype of an helicopter and also a flying machine with wings.

Fiumicino is about 20 to 25 minutes from Rome by car or 30 to 45 minutes by train from Termini. The second option is a likely one if you have plenty of time (or if you’ve arranged your train connection), Leonardo Express departs from Fiumicino twice every hour, but if you’re not (or if there’s a strike) you can also take a taxi or a private bus, these leave every 30min from the airport and arrive to Termini train station in Rome.

That day there was a transport strike and as we weren’t so sure how long it was going to take us to arrive to the airport so we decided to take a cab to the airport. We arrived very early in the morning. My flight was leaving at 10 o’clock and after passing through all migration controls I had to wait still two hours so… I decided to walk around Terminale 3, here there are some redscale pictures (also of the takeoff!)

So many nice memories from my trip to Italy… so beautiful to leave the country with that spectacular sight from Tirrean sea.

Arrivederci Italia!
