1. Re: go out of the airport?

Where is your origin and final destination on these trips? Europe, North America, Africa? That will help determine when you need to be back at the airport. i.e. - for countries within the EU, 2 hours should be fine, for countries in North America, you should be at the airport 3 hours before your flight.

Also, incoming passport control at FCO can have long lines - there were a few posts last month that stated the wait time was over an hour.

So even though 8 hours seems like a lot, depending on your origin and destination, the excess time can be consumed quickly.
