Zürich, Switzerland to Rome, Italy
Today I flew a real route from Zürich, Switzerland, to Rome, Italy. Zurich and Italy are 537 miles (864 km) away from each other. Rome was featured today by IFATC. This flight that takes just over an hour heads south over The Alps, over Milan, and then rides along the western Italian coast into the Rome airspace. The descent into Rome was a little turbulent but was not very severe. I highly recommend this route for anyone that likes doing short haul scenic flights!
