2023 UIM XCAT World Championship Italian Grand Prix Fiumicino:
April 28th – May 1st
Fiumicino is a town and municipality in the Metropolitan City of Rome, Lazio, central Italy. It is known for being the site of Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport, the busiest airport in Italy and the eleventh-busiest in Europe.
Fiumicino means “little river”….and along the main street Via della Torre Clementina runs a small river, an offshoot from the main Tiber River nearby (the Tiber River also runs in Rome as well).
Fiumicino has a large fishing center on the sea coast, so you’ll be sure to see many fishing boats docked along the river, and much of the fresh fish caught daily by the fishermen immediately make their way to the local restaurants.
The coastal town doubles as a beach resort during the summer months.
The race location is: Darsena Area - Fiumicino, Italy.
