Customs and Travel Time

Jump to last reply

Hello, I've read through many forums just trying to get an idea before asking but I still seem to be a little confused. I am taking my first trip to Europe in a couple of months.

I am flying from DC ==> Brussels ==> Italy
I would imagine I would go through customs in Italy, correct? I think I don't go through it until I have the luggage and that is being checked through to Italy? Do I have to go through any kind of immigration in Brussels?

On the way back I go from Italy ==> Frankfurt ==> DC. Would I have to go through anything in Frankfurt?

Lastly the way the flights were set up, I only have an hour and a half layover in Brussels. Is this enough time? I called the airline and they said if we set up flights like that, it's enough time. I've never been to Europe and never been through Brussels airport so I am a little unsure.

Thank you in advance!
