Not sure whether to head for the mountains or dive into a beautiful sea with stunning beaches? Choose an Alitalia flight and fly to the heart of Venezuela, to discover a rainforest inhabited by Indios, admire breathtaking waterfalls and experience endless adventures in a savanna that offers every kind of wonder.
Use the booking form to book one or more air tickets on an Alitalia flight: you'll need to enter your departure and arrival airports, the dates you wish to travel, the number of passengers and the cabin class you prefer.
The landscapes that abound in this fascinating country discovered by Christopher Columbus and named (literally "little Venice") by Amerigo Vespucci and Alonso de Ojeda, represent the genuine and authentic tourist treasures that are worth the journey in themselves: the Andes with the 4,981 m Pico Bolivar situated in the Cordillera de Mérida, the Caribbean Sea, Margarita Island and the heavenly Los Roques islands, whose main island Gran Roque offers a welcoming place to stay in the typical posadas, Lake Maracaibo and the Rio Orinoco, two of the country's most important water reserves, the splendid Gran Savana, characterized by some peculiarly shaped mountains known as Tepui, which hide in one of their valleys the highest waterfall in the world, the Angel Falls (named after the explorer who discovered them, Jimmy Angel), which can be reached by a river excursion or by plane from the center of the Canaima National Park, the largest national park in Venezuela and the sixth largest in the world, the modern capital of Caracas and the cities of Maracaibo, Valencia, Maracay, Barquisimeto, Ciudad Guyana, Cumana, Puerto La Cruz, Ciudad Bolivar, Mérida and Coro, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Don't miss: two events in Mérida with the suggestive Epiphany ceremony on January 6, and the parade with floats and music in the Carnival period; the Los Tambores de Barlovento event in March, celebrating the rainy season; and in December, between Christmas and New Year, celebrate San Bonito, the patron saint of the populations who live around Lake Maracaibo.
