Skydiving in Rome

Want to experience the Italian countryside in a unique way? Skydiving tours in Rome are the ultimate thrill for daredevils looking to ramp up the pace of their sightseeing.

Jumping out of a plane at 12,000 feet isn’t for the faint-hearted, but the 360-degree views make it all worthwhile.

If you’re up for a challenge, skydiving in Rome can easily be added to your vacation itinerary.

What are the best skydiving tours in Rome?

Skydiving tours in Rome all follow a similar format, with the main variation being the location. You’ll be doing a tandem jump with an experienced instructor, and you may be sharing the plane with other adventurous travelers.

This is what you can expect during your jump experience.

Rome skydiving trip starting in Nettuno

First up, you’ll need to make your own way to the airfield in Nettuno, which is 40 miles from the center of Rome. Next, you’ll be given a 20-minute safety briefing before being kitted up for the jump.

Then it’s time to board the small aircraft and enjoy a scenic flight, as the plane climbs to 12,000 feet. Sit back and soak up the views over Rome and the nearby coast – this will help steady your nerves!

As the doors are flung open, you will move to the opening, secured firmly to your expert jump partner. Before you know it, you’ll be freefalling at speeds of up to 125 miles an hour. This lasts around a minute, which is plenty of time for the adrenaline to kick in.

Your instructor will then unfurl the parachute and you’ll enjoy a five-minute descent to the drop zone. If you’re feeling brave, you can even take the controls yourself for a bit of extra kudos.

Back down on earth, you can relive the thrill with photos and video footage, depending on the package you have selected. Then you’ll head back to Rome where you can celebrate your achievement in style.

Monte Compatri skydiving trip from Rome

This Rome skydiving experience is the same as the one above but takes place much closer to the city. Just 12 miles southeast of Rome, the historic village of Monte Compatri watches over the Aniene Valley in the Castelli Romani region. It makes a beautiful launching site for your skydive.

Once you’ve taken to the skies by plane, you’ll enjoy views of the volcanic Alban Hills and the edge of Rome before your jump.

After your experience, you will head back into the city by public transport.
