Naples to Munich/Frankfurt, to DC, when do you go through customs?

Jump to last reply

We're trying to plan travel in Sept. 2012 for a trip to Praiano, Italy. Right now I'm just trying to get a grasp of the best flights to be looking at in terms of sufficient time for our needs and going through customs.

The two flights in question are:

Naples->Munich (2hr 25min layover)->DC(1hr 37 min layover)->Burlington, VT
Naples->Frankfurt(1hr 15min layover)->DC(2hr 17min layover)->Burlington, VT

The second flight is a bit more expensive but a shorter flight and leaves in the early afternoon. The first flight is a bit cheaper (only a $25 difference) and leaves just before noon (both flights mean we can just come in from Praiano instead of having to stay near the airport the night before, which is a good thing).

The question is, where will we be going through customs on this? Do we go through customs in Munich/Frankfurt after flying in from Naples and then again once we land in DC? Or would we only be going through customs in DC? If we have to go through customs in Frankfurt, would a 1 hour and 15 min layover be enough time to make our connection or would it be pretty tight, and if we have any delays, we'd be in trouble?

We traveled from Geneva, through Belgium, then back to the states last year, and neither of us can remember at all if we had to go through customs in Belgium after flying in from Geneva (that was a VERY LONG day and we were tired even before we got to Belgium because we'd gotten up VERY EARLY to drive an hour and a half to catch our early morning flight).
