My husband and I recently spent two nights at Al Porticciolo when we arrived in Italy and another night before our flight out the next day. We chose it because it is near FCO and we thought it would be convenient. To our surprise and delight we found it is not only convenient to the airport but a beautiful, wecoming, and peaceful place to stay. It is simply but beautifully decorated and a quiet oasis in the busy little town. I believe it is family owned and operated and the staff is very welcoming and helpful. We were given directions in taking the bus and train and also assistance in making reservatons for cabs to the airport/train station. The rooms are not only beautiful but extremely clean. While not all the staff was not fluent in English we all managed to communicate quite well.
We spent two days and nights. One day we took the train into Rome to sightsee. If I had it to do over I would have stayed in Fuimicino and explored some the sights nearby rather than go into the city. Fuimicino is a "working town" and it was fun to walk along the canal where the fishing boats are docked and nets spread out. There a few little shops and places where VERY fresh fish are sold. There is gelato (hooray) and several restaurants.
Al Porticciolo is also the home of an amazing restaurant, Pascucci. We treated ourselves to dinner our first night and it was memorable. It is an award winning restaurant and the food is not only exquisite but beautifully presented. We met the chef, Gianfranco, one evening as we were returning for the evening. When I complemented him on the food he told me that cooking it was an expression of love for his beautiful wife, Venessa.
I would love to go there again.
