Hiring a car from Rome Ciampino airport
Rome Ciampino airport Q&A
Where are the car hire desks?
Car hire stations can be found just outside the airport by the Via Mario Mameli road at car park 8; a shuttle service runs to this car park regularly. At the end of your holiday, your hire car should be returned here.
What should I buy at duty free?
Apart from pizzas and art and architecture and, well, too many things to list, the Italians also do really good chocolate. Pick up a stash of Amedei to take home and when you get it there, find somewhere to hide it.
Are there any cashpoints?
The arrivals areas and General Aviation Terminal all have cash machines available in them.
Where's the best place to eat?
There are a few kiosks serving snacks and drinks at the airport, but save time queuing and either eat in the city or bring some food with you; there’s no such thing as a bad takeaway in Rome.
The secret tip
When translated, Tiramisu, the famous, delicious Italian cake, means "pick me up". Order a slice with your coffee and there will be no afternoon pennichella (snooze) for you. This means that while the roads are clear, you can take the hire car for a spin and beat the traffic. Located on the southeast of Rome, 9 miles from the centre, Ciampino is the smaller of the cities two airports.
