Bergen Airport

I arrived into Bergen on Loganair’s inaugural flight from Edinburgh; a short but sweet journey that took just over an hour to complete. As we arrived into Norway by air, we were immediately greeted by those picturesque Norwegian vistas: a coastline scattered with islands and snaking fjords, and hillsides peppered with brightly coloured houses.

We arrived in the evening so the traffic was light and from Ciampinio Airport to our hotel in central Rome it was only about a 35 minutes drive.
