Two of the best-known of the seven United Arab Emirates, Dubai and Abu Dhabi constantly stagger visitors with their architectural achievements courtesy of a vast investment in development. Travel deals to the United Arab Emirates with Alitalia's stylish fleet will earn you MilleMiglia benefit points and open your eyes to a wonderland.
In just a couple of decades, Dubai has transformed from a sleepy village famed for pearl diving into an outrageous, flashy, ostentatious but above all fun city. You can shop in designer boutiques, negotiate in souks, indulge in water sports or just laze on the pristine beaches, Dubai has it all – plus the world's tallest building in the Burj Khalifa. In Abu Dhabi, journey to the top of the Observation Deck at 300, where you can look out over the astonishing sights the city have to offer. A glittering jewel on the edge of Gulf, Abu Dhabi is the home of the luxurious Emirates Palace, Ferrari World and the handcrafted beauty of the Corniche.
Since the United Arab Emirates are blessed with sunshine all year round, travelers may prefer to book their flights to travel during the cooler winter months, or in May or September when the weather is at its best. Modest clothing is optional, but appreciated when shopping or sightseeing.
