What to do in Rome After Arriving on an Early Morning Flight
It is very common when arriving into the Rome Airport on an international flight to land early in the morning…sometimes very early like 6am. Perhaps during low tourist season your hotel will let you come and check in early and give you your room right away, but don’t count on it.
More likely than not, your room will still have the previous night’s occupants and you will have to amuse yourselves for hours until after lunch when your room is finally available. One option that many hotels offer is an extra fee for early arrival. However this can cost a lot, sometimes the same as the nightly rate for just a few hours, so it might not be worth it.
For international travelers suffering from some jetlag, wandering around an unknown city by themselves while tired is obviously not ideal. But we have the answer! We can arrange for a friendly driver to meet you and your family, group of friends, or business group directly at the airport with a luxury car or one or more luxury minivans.
At the airport, you will have a hassle-free arrival and then be entertained during a morning and early afternoon of sightseeing until it is time for check in, usually around 2 or 3pm.
