Barcelona El-Prat Airport has two terminals. Terminal 2 is split into three subsections. Alitalia and Vueling both depart from terminal 1 while Ryanair flights leave from terminal 2B. While terminal 1 is very modern (and the fifth largest terminal in the world), terminal 2B is the oldest existing part of Barcelona Airport.

Practical Information

You don't need a passport to fly from Barcelona to Rome as both cities are within the Schengen area. We recommend keeping your passport on you, anyway, as you may be asked to show some photographic identification before boarding. Try to arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes before scheduled departure.

What to expect in Rome

Rome is in the same time-zone as Barcelona. Both Italy and Spain use the Euro (€) so there's no need to visit the currency exchange. Rome's climate is slightly warmer than Barcelona's in the summer, and slightly cooler during the winter. June to August are the hottest months, when temperatures can soar up to and beyond 30°C. If you're planning on doing a lot of sightseeing, this is a bad time to visit. If you're just planning to hop between the 12 best restaurants in Rome it might be okay, however. Generally speaking, Rome is more expensive than Barcelona. Expect to pay about €10* more for dinner for two, and €1.50* more for a draught beer.
