Volcano Vent Suddenly Opens Up In Rome SHARE: Tweet If you’re planning on traveling to Rome anytime soon, make sure there’s not a volcano erupting. A geyser-like vent opened up near Rome’s International Fiumicino Airport, shooting up globs of earth. Check it out below: Geologists are still investigating the phenomenon. According to the Telegraph, the nearest volcano is a dozen miles away. The nearest possibly active volcanic system is the Monti Albani, which lies 12 miles south-east of Rome, although its last known activity took place around 20,000 years ago. Either way, um, yikes.
