Flying United into Rome from US ~ which terminal?

I have done a bunch of Google searches and looked at airport maps, and I am still not certain at which terminal we will arrive flying United from the US to Rome FCO.

Help?

We go in and out of Rome a couple of times a year. Quite frankly I have no idea which terminal it comes into. We just come in, go through customs and leave. Slow Travels website says all North American flights come into Terminal 3. Why don't you call the airline?

Hi Wren - The best source for this is the FCO airport website -

Hope this helps ...

You will arrive at Terminal 3. United departures-Terminal 5.

You may also arrive on the tarmac and be bused to your terminal. FCO is not a great place to depend on making a really tight connection.

Even if you arrive on the tarmac you will be bused to terminal 3 for customs.

Thanks all.

I did call United and was put on hold, got impatient so I figured I would ask here! I had looked at the Airport website but I couldn't find the answer.

I'm not worried about making connections, just trying to get an idea of where things are, as I was told we can pick up our Roma Passes at the PIT (Punto Informativo Turistico) that is located between Terminal 3 and Terminal 2, and then meet the driver outside custom clearance who will take us to our Apartment.

Can't believe 4 weeks from now we will be in Rome!

Are you sure that the flight attendant will let you?

I understand about holding on. My time is more valuable. I just looked on the the Roma Pass website and they said you can purchase the pass at:
"International Arrival area (Terminal 3). 9.00am - 6.30pm"
What time is your flight landing? We usually arrive at 7 am and out before 7:30 am.

The other question is....will the driver wait for you to get the pass if there's a line. They are usually in and out as fast as they can. There are plenty of other places to purchase the pass.

We arrive at FCO at 8:30, and the driver will pick us up at 10, so we should have enough time to clear customs, get luggage, and pick up the passes.

We're supposed to meet the driver outside customs clearance, so hopefully that isn't too much backtracking?

Nope, you're good. It isn't a big area. You will probably have to find the driver or his helper inside near the door you came out from. They hold a card up with your name on it.
