Semester Architecture in Rome Arrival

Students are expected to arrive on Thursday, January 8, 2015 into the Rome Fiumicino (FCO) airport before 3pm. Airport pickup is included in the CISabroad program fee, but we cannot guarantee airport pickup for anyone that arrives outside of the designated arrival times. To help us make sure we meet you at the airport, please fill out this form with flight information if you have not done so already.

Upon arrival you will need to pass through immigration, pick up your luggage, and pass through customs. Once you are out of the customs area look for Pantheon Institute (PI) Shuttle Service approved drivers. They will be waiting in Terminal 3 near the post marked “meeting points” and holding signs that say Pantheon Institute.

Please note that shuttle will leave at 12pm noon and between 3 and 4pm, so you might have to wait for a little while if you arrive early or between these times.

Your bags may decide to take a later flight (don’t panic). If the airline loses your luggage you must file a report with the airline while you are still in the baggage area. It is much more difficult to file this report once you’ve left the baggage claim area.

If your flight is delayed, please make sure to call the CISabroad Emergency phone (413-210-7091) so that we can inform our onsite team of your delay. We will do everything we can to pick you up from the airport, even if your flight is delayed, but if we cannot meet you there, we will provide you with detailed information on how to take transportation to your housing.

A Pre-Arrival sheet will be e-mailed to you, 1-2 weeks before you arrive onsite. This will contain more detailed information on your arrival as well as specific phone numbers and contact information if there are any issues with your flight or airport pickup.
