Located close to the coastline, and considered the busier of the two airports in Rome, Rome Fiumicino also known as Leonardo Di Vinci International Airport is a great starting point for a city break and a further exploration into the volcanic landscape of the north.

Things to See and Do in Rome
The Modern Centre of Rome is where you will find the Trevi Fountain and the Quirinal. If you are dying to try some real Italian gelato, saunter around the small streets and find an artisan gelateria. The best advice is to try natural looking ones. Any hint of colouring is usually a bad sign!
Stroll to the North Centre and find the Spanish Steps. If you crave a relaxing afternoon, why not amble around Villa Borghese? If you’ve brought the children along, a trip to Rome Zoo should keep the little ones happy.
The imposing monument of Il Vittoriano is a fantastic sight both during the day and at night. If you get a chance, explore the inside and take the glass lift to the top for a stunning view of the city.
For some truly traditional Italian food, wander through the Trastevere. Found on the opposite side of the River Tiber, it contains a plethora of trattorias in which you can enjoy a delightful meal.
Day Trips From Rome
With many volcanic lakes within a reasonable driving distance, why not travel to each of them? Lake Bracciano is perfect for a swim, whilst the landscape surrounding Lake Vico is rather picturesque. Lake Bolsena is the largest and the town of Bolsena is filled with historic sites.
Journey to the opposite side of the coast and soak up the sunshine on the golden sands. Pescara is close by and great for relaxing or wandering around a local market. The mountain range La Bella Addormentata is only a short distance away and well worth a visit too.
With Naples just a short drive away, why not collect a rental car and make your way there? Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii are fairly close too so a combination of historical monuments and the beauty of the Amalfi Coast should be a winning one.
Due to the amount of wine produced in Italy, no trip would be complete without a tour of a vineyard. There are many to choose from in Tuscany, or sample the local Lazio wine, Frascati.
