|Alitalia's Offers More Flights From Boston or Miami to Rome||| Print ||

Alitalia just recently announced some new routes that will offer greater flexibility for travelers going between:
Boston Logan Airport (BOS) and Rome Fiumicino (FCO)
Miami International (MIA) and Rome Fiumicino (FCO)
The Boston to Rome outbound flight will leave at 10:45 PM and arrive in Rome around 12:50 PM in the afternoon.
These are basically "red eye" flights but arrives in Rome with enough time for you to settle in to your hotel or catch another flight to another Italian city.
The nice thing is that it gives you more time during your travel day in the United States to take care of those last-minute details. It'll probably be easier to fall asleep after a couple of hours on the flight and hopefully you'll wake up and be landing in Rome.
The return flights also leave a little later from Rome than normal. The Rome to Boston flight will leave at 3:20 PM while the Miami one leaves at 10:30 AM.
If you are catching a flight from another Italian city taking you to Rome, this will give you more time so you don't need to catch an early-morning flight.
Many times I'll take the flight from Palermo to Rome to catch a 9 AM flight back to the United States. That would mean getting up early in Palermo to get to the airport (Punta Raisi) in time for the flight to Rome. This way, I won't have to get up as early.
And if you are going to Boston from Rome, you have the luxury of your flight leaving in the afternoon. You'll just have to check out of your hotel by noon and then head to Fiumicino.
Below is the schedule of the new flights:
