Cigarettes have fixed price all over Italy and at the airport the price is the same because you are arriving so no duty free for you.

Seems that they have particular tobacco shops over there (unlike the UK where most shops sell them). And yeah, they seem to be a set price, much cheaper than UK. Like €5 for a 20 pack.

Yes, a tabacchi. There's one at FCO on your way to the taxis/trains. There's plenty across the city.
