Macedonia is one of Europe's hidden jewels. Independent since 1991, this small country has rapidly established an envious reputation for stunning beauty and superb opportunities for unspoiled tourism. Fly to Macedonia in Italian style with Alitalia and see for yourself the myriad attractions of this wonderful land, from the ancient history of Skopje and the World Heritage Site of Ohrid to the natural grandeur of the Mavrovo National Park.
Flying to Macedonia will give you the chance to get to know Skopje. A wonderful and colorful city, its Old Town is home to a large bazaar and also provides many examples of the exotic architectural influences from the country’s Ottoman past. Stroll across the ancient (originally 6th-century) stone bridge in the center to discover the modern city with its vast number of modern monuments created as part of an exuberant statement of the country's modern development. You can also visit the Memorial House of Mother Teresa, who was born in the city. If you want a little countryside, take a trip to Mount Vodno with its sweeping views over Skopje, by cable car or bus.
Travel to Macedonia with Alitalia from mid-June to the end of July and Skopje will be alive with innumerable folk festivals and concerts (many of which are free).
