History, art, incredible landscapes and delicious food make Italy one of the most loved destinations for tourists. "The most beautiful country in the world", as it is often called, offers visitors countless things to do and see. Take a flight to Italy and admire the historical beauties of Rome, the Renaissance art of Florence, Venice's romantic and evocative lagoon, the picturesque streets of Naples, go shopping in the best boutiques in Milan, eat the finest pizza in the world, taste the most prestigious wines and visit medieval towns, majestic churches and historical palaces. All of this is Italy: “That’s Amore!”.
The city of the Dolce Vita has an unmistakable charm. Among ancient monuments, palaces, churches, works of art and piazzas, there is an endless list of things to see in the Eternal City. While the most famous tourist attraction is undoubtedly the Colosseum, there are also the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, Piazza di Spagna, Piazza del Popolo and the Trastevere, to name but a few. A trip to Rome makes for an unforgettable vacation.
Blessed with a timeless elegance, the lagoon city has no need of an introduction, given that it is one of the most popular destinations in the world. A favorite location for a romantic vacation, Venice is a city to be discovered block by block, strolling along its streets and admiring the reflection of its sumptuous buildings on the water. Among the things not to be missed: St. Mark's Square and St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the Grand Canal, Rialto Bridge, Giudecca, Dorsoduro, Cannaregio, Campo Santo Stefano and the three islands, Burano, Murano and Torcello. A trip to Venice is a living daydream.
The perfect example of a city of art, Florence was the cradle of the Renaissance. The Piazza del Duomo is an open-air museum that contains masterpieces such as the Florence Cathedral, Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower and The Baptistery of St. John. The Tuscan city also features one of the most famous bridges in the world, the Ponte Vecchio, and one of the most visited museums, the Uffizi Gallery, which contains works by Leonardo, Caravaggio, Giotto, Raffaello, Tiziano, Botticelli, Cimabue, Mantegna and Parmigianino, among others. Whether you are an art enthusiast or otherwise, a trip to Florence is a must.
Above all, the Parthenopean city is famous for its culinary specialty, exported throughout the world: pizza. Here you can taste the original dish and reward your palate with other exceptional recipes from the traditional local cuisine, though Napoli offers much else besides. It is a city to be experienced and taken in as you stroll along the streets of the old town, admiring true works of art such as the Veiled Christ, the Cloister of Santa Chiara and the San Domenico Maggiore. With a short excursion you can also visit the nearby majestic Amalfi Coast and the ruins of Pompei. A trip to Naples means diving into the culture and folklore of a unique city.
The capital of fashion is a modern city, dynamic, full of events and art and design exhibitions. With a trip to Milan you can visit the splendid Milan Cathedral, the Sforzesco Castle, the Teatro alla Scala and the Brera artistic quarter, book a visit to view The Last Supper, go shopping on Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga and enjoy an evening aperitif at the Navigli. For fans of fashion and design, or simply a great nightlife, Milan is the perfect destination.
Fall and spring are perhaps the best times to book a flight to Italy for, as the weather is not too hot – especially in the center and the south – and not too cold in the north. For lovers of fashion, Milan Fashion Week takes place in September/October and February/March, while Milan Furniture Fair, which features the best of global design, is held in April. Summer in Italy is best if you want to enjoy the sea, while in winter you can enjoy the Christmas season if you fancy seeing cities like Rome and Naples full of festive decorations. It's always a good time for a trip to Italy!
