5 Hour Layover- Anything Close by to See???

We have a 5 hour layover at the Fiumicino airport and were wondering if there's anything close by to see. Anything to do at the airport? LOL Rome would be quite a stretch.

Are your bags check thru? You'll have your boarding pass? I would figure 2 hours going back thru security, sometimes those lines just move soooo slow.

www.ostia-antica.org is very interesting and not to far from FCO. Here's a link: tripadvisor.com/…39975357 I've never noticed a taxi stand at Ostia Antica, but by using the search bar above the posts, I did see someone post their existance. Try FCO to Ostia Antica in the search bar.

If you prefer a private driver, contact www.romecabs.com

We've just returned from a flight returning from Fiumicino. Getting through security and passport control was lengthy and quite disorganised. As European Union citizens we used a separate passport line and the line for passport control was only 15 minutes or so, however the line for all other international passports, the line was probably 4 or 5 times longer. Security was "disoranised" and also took much longer than other airports. Be wary of times to return for your onward flight.

Did this October 4 2012. It was 75 degrees warm and sunny.We had 6 hours to kill leaving 2 hours to check in etc.

Left Luggage is called DEPOSIT in italian.

Took a taxi, by Airport train station entrance, 15E, to Fiumicino's seaside area. Very quiet but nice enough. A bit like Cuba, no cars and very quiet..

Stopped at FLORIDA RISTORANTE L.Mare Della Salute tel:06 65.02.96.47 and had great lunch by the sea for c50E total. Then had a nap on beach loungers and called for a taxi back to airport..(20E this time).

Taxi driver said most people go to Freegeme beach more upmarket and 35E from Airport.. Recommended Singite restaurant there.

Also said one stop on train (5 mins) was Parco Leonardo shopping. Taxi there would be 20E he said.
