A secret gem just 10 minutes from the Airport
Posted Oct 2, 2016
I was looking at the Guide Michelin for a seafood restaurant in Rome and happened upon Pasccusi di Porticciolo (a wonderful dining experience, by the way) in Fiumicino. That started a search for a Fiumicino hotel that was not the typical nondescript, vending machine airport hotel. Domus Lina, a simple, but perfect boutique hotel, is a real gem. The bedroom was spacious, light and airy and very comfortable with a terrace overlooking the river. The bathroom was one of the best we have experienced in Italy. We vowed that whenever we are flying into/out of Rome, we will make a point of staying one or two nights at Domus Lina and returning to Pasccusi, which is a short two block walk across a pedestrian bridge over the river to a gastronomic adventure.
Best of all, the trip to the airport is stress free!
