I'm travelling to Rome (via Abu Dhabi) in May, arriving @ 6:30 on a Thursday morning. Anyone have any idea on how busy it is at that time and how much time is needed to clear immigration/customs and get to Rome Termini? Thanks.

Although there was no express lane for J and F customers, my last immigration entry in Rome was pretty fast. Took me less than 20 mins from landing to my chauffeur drive.

There’s a high speed train from the airport direct to Termini, I suggest using it.

Rome has dedicated immigration lanes for AU/CA/KO/NZ/JP/US citizens.

In retrospect I'm not sure whether it was on inward or outward path through immigration when I was at FCO a few months back, but the signage for the dedicated lane didn't mention Australian citizens. While we hesitated, an official approached us, looked at the Aust passports and said 'US - Australia, same same'. So watch out for the US lane if you can't see AU/CA/KO/NZ/JP. It was very quick on the Thursday early morning that we arrived.The Leonardo Express to Termini station takes 32 minutes.
Thanks everyone. Appreciate the feedback!

Inbound immigration is fairly quick; outbound immigration is horrendous. When I did this last year, it took close to an hour outbound.
