Fiumicino is located just a few kilometers from Rome, and is home to the local international airport. Now if you’ve been staying in Rome you might not want, or need to move yourself closer to the airport. Getting to the airport from Rome is actually pretty easy, just take the train. But if you’ve been travelling around the region with a car, the last thing you should do the night before your departure is navigate into Rome.

Fiumicino has historically been the stop of last resort, home to many hotels, all of them over-priced and underwhelming. It’s a tough thing to deal with, spending your last night in Italy in a crappy hotel, but there is now a solution: Hotel Seccy. Want even better news? There are also several new restaurants in Fiumicino, one of them is actually worth a detour to visit!

What to expect: Prosecco

Prosecco is a unique grape, as it is almost always used to produce the sparking wine of the same name, in Italy's Veneto region. The wines tend to feature a light orchard fruit tone, recalling white peaches and pears, with bright acidity and light body. Many versions of Prosecco have a touch a sweetness that adds fullness to the feel of the wine, though there is a movement towards producing dryer wines, particularly under the Cartizze denomination.
