Arriving in Kuala Lumpur

This cosmopolitan city is making a name for itself as a location for both travellers who like a little luxury, and more adventurous explorers looking for an interesting destination.
Modern fuses effortlessly with ancient in Kuala Lumpur; you can see the city’s skyline, dominated by the Petronas Towers, surrounded by tranquil statues of Buddha.
At the top of the list of places to see for most visitors to Kuala Lumpur is the astonishing Petronas Towers. These twin skyscrapers are still among the tallest buildings in the world, and offer those who have a head for heights an incredible view of Kuala Lumpur, from both the 86th floor and the sky bridge on the 41st floor.
It is also possible to discover a few more natural attractions too. Aquaria KLCC features a large aquarium and underwater walkway, where visitors can quite literally immerse themselves in an underwater world.
The KL Bird Park is home to more than 200 species of birds from around Asia. Near Merdeka Square is Masjid Jamek, a charming Moorish-style mosque, while the Lake Gardens offer a respite from the frenetic pace of city life.

Flying from Rome
Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport is the larger of two key airports serving Rome and the surrounding region.
Its location close to the Italian capital makes this an important international air hub, yet it manages to maintain a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that focuses on creating a pleasant environment for inbound and outbound travellers.
Passengers flying from Fiumicino with Qatar Airways will find the airport to be well organised, efficient and spacious, with excellent facilities, particularly its very good coffee vendors and luxury leather good outlets.
Transportation and parking
The Leonardo Express train service runs every 30 minutes to and from Rome's Termini railway station, and takes approximately 35 minutes, making it the quickest and most direct route from the centre of Rome to the airport.
FL1 local trains also run to the airport regularly. If you are planning to travel by taxi then do allow extra time for your journey, due to Rome’s legendary traffic congestion, and only take a white, licensed and metred taxi and not the unofficial taxis that throng the major tourist spots and hotels.
Arriving at Fiumicino
Passengers flying from Fiumicino with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 3. Be aware that due to a serious fire in May 2015, some parts of the terminal are currently being repaired.
However, all check-in desks are currently operational. Allow approximately two hours from the scheduled departure time of your flight to check in and clear security.
Facilities and amenities
There are several lounges for the use of passengers, including VIP lounges for First Class and Business Class travellers. Business users also have access to meeting rooms, office space and business services in Terminal 1.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport, and there is full accessibility for disabled passengers, including a specially adapted lounge that can accommodate wheelchair users.
A good choice of retail outlets provide a selection of high quality goods (look out in particular for some excellent leather goods and accessories), and a food hall provides everything from light snacks and refreshments to exceptionally good Italian and international cuisine.
