Very good airport, the terminals are closed enough, good signs and information, the staff speaks english the most, helpful people. You can guide yourself easy inside. I've missed more seats in the waiting area. Arrive with enough time if leaving Europe from Fiumicino because emigration lines are a bit crowded (30 minutes waiting time minimum).
