Plan Your Melbourne Holiday

There is certainly plenty to see and do when you travel to Melbourne, as well as the chance to sit back and relax. Just outside the city is the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, an afternoon attraction where you can see penguins walk down to the beach and even walk amongst them. Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully. Reserve your tickets to Melbourne with the weather in mind, as swimming in the sea is best in the summer. Finding cheap hotels in Melbourne will not be a problem, due to the many types of accommodation on offer in the city and suburbs. Flight deals to Melbourne are available throughout the year, so be sure to check our Deals section before confirming your holiday.

Major Airports in Rome

Flights from Rome depart from the Leonardo da Vinci International Airport (FCO), otherwise known as Fiumicino Airport. Located 21.7 miles southwest of central Rome, Fiumicino has 4 terminals: T1, T2, T3 and T5. Each terminal has a large array of shops and dining options, including Burberry, Swarovski, Ferrari Spazio Bollicine and Frescobaldi. For those transfer passengers who wish to drop off their luggage while waiting for their connection, the airport offers the ADR luggage deposit service, located in the Arrivals Area of Terminal 3.

Airport Transportation in Rome

There are several transportation options between Rome and the airport. The non-stop bus to Fiumicino Airport from the centrally located Termini Station takes around 55 minutes. Another solution is to catch an express train to Fiumicino Airport, which will get you to the airport in 31 minutes and is preferable to the regular train, which takes 1 hour and 10 minutes.
