Arriving in Rome

Book your flights to Rome with Etihad Airways and prepare to experience a world where antiquity and modernity gracefully walk hand in hand.

Plan Your Rome Holiday

We cannot begin to name all the reasons to travel to Rome, but let us give you a few. Sit by the waters of the Trevi Fountain and watch the lifeblood of the city – its people – hurry about the town. Stroll through the luxurious Villa Borghese, Rome’s second largest public park, which contains attractions and museums. Search for one-of-a-kind treasures in the shops along Via del Boschetto. Feed your senses in one of Rome’s many restaurants and sample the traditional, deservingly world-renowned cuisine.

The peak season in Rome runs from June to August. We recommend you purchase your tickets to Rome well in advance if travelling during the summer months. To find cheap hotels in Rome and avoid the heat and crowds, consider visiting in October or November or anytime from February until April. Winter might be chilly, but Rome offers so many indoor attractions that your trip will not lack for satisfying entertainment. Make sure to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Rome throughout the year.

Major Airports in Sri Lanka

Reserve your flights from Sri Lanka and fly from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The airport is in the city of Hambantota and is 35km from the city of Colombo. Both Terminals 1 and 2 serve international passengers, while the third terminal operates exclusively for domestic services. As the main airport in Sri Lanka, Bandaranaike Airport has excellent road and rail links. Ratmalana International Airport (RML) also offers international flights from Colombo itself.

Airport Transportation in Sri Lanka

Trains to Bandaranaike Airport can be accessed using the Airport Express Rail, which runs directly from the centre of Colombo. You can catch a shuttle bus to Bandaranaike Airport from some hotels so be sure to enquire when you book. The extensive public bus system in Colombo does run to the airports, but you may prefer to hire a taxi to Bandaranaike Airport, which will take only 13 minutes from Colombo city centre via the new, high-speed Katunayake Expressway.
