Oil traffic accounts for over 50% of port activities.
Passengers traffic is also intense and concentrated in the connection services with the Pontine islands. The transfer is facilitated by the proximity between the seaport and the airport.
Precisely in Fiumicino, in fact, there is also the Capital International Airport. The structure is dedicated to one of the greatest Italian geniuses ever: Leonardo da Vinci.
