Fiumicino is known as the largest airport in Italy which was opened in 1961. It was named after Leonardo da Vinci — the famous artist, scientist and inventor of the Renaissance. Fiumicino Airport was built after Ciampino Airport became too small for Rome — the capital of Italy needed to serve as many passengers as possible due to the popularization of tourism. And here is the one famous fact: in 2011 37 million of passengers were served by Fiumicino. It is very impressive, is not it?
