Cheap flights from Italy

Italy resides in Southern Europe, bordering Switzerland, France, Slovenia and Austria. Officially known as the Italian Republic, this beautiful land consists mainly of mountainous or hilly regions (though it also includes some islands like Sardinia and Sicily). No stranger to the rest of the world, Italy is the birthplace of countless famous artists such as Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Tintoretto and Caravaggio and its capital city, Rome, used to be the ancient and mighty Roman Empire that ruled the world back in the Classical antiquity era.

Don’t leave Italy without having visited Rome, the Eternal City with 3,000 years of history to its name. Founded in 753BC, Rome has been the capital of Italy since the 1800s and boasts ancient architecture and artefacts left behind from its glory days as the Roman Empire. Witness the vastness of the Colosseum - where gladiators used to battle to the death - then head over to the immensely beautiful Trevi Fountain, one of the most photographed sites in Rome with its statue of Neptune and his chariot. Legend has it that, if you toss a coin in the Trevi, you will one day return to the eternal city.  

Next, head to the city of Florence (Firenze in Italian). Known as a hotbed of history and culture, it was one of the most important cities of the past, involved in the beginning and nurturing of the cultural explosion known as the Renaissance back in the 14th to 17th century. The city produced some of the greatest art and architecture of its time, which has lasted even up to present day. Housing some of the most amazing churches, museums and palaces in the world (which in turn hold a treasure trove of art in the form of frescoes, paintings and more), the history buff and art lover would be loath to ever leave this paradise.

Give yourself a well-deserved break from all that history by visiting the gorgeous Sardinia,  known for its generous endowment of natural beauty. Have a look at one of the natural wonders of the Mediterranean basin, the Cave of Neptune. This stunning grotto is one of the most-visited tourist attractions in Italy and can only be accessed via a boat or –for those on foot –after ascending the ‘Billy Goat Stairs’'660 steps cut into a cliff side. After all, the best things can’t be seen for free. Once you’re there, it’d all be worth it– how many other places boast a huge, magical shimmering lake within a cave? And that isn’t even the main feature– a quick descent brings you to the magnificent columns of massive stalagmites and a sandy beach, all within the same cave.

If you’d prefer leaving Italy, you can grab a flight to Paris, the city of love and one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. France’s capital city needs no introduction; it's the set-piece of almost every romantic movie, poem and love story. Scale the Eiffel Tower, admire the Mona Lisa whilst exploring the Louvre Museum and don't miss the Arc de Triomphe!

For a vacation a little further away, how about Vietnam’s famed Saigon? Now called Ho Chi Minh City, this city was once called the ‘Diamond of the Far East’with its interesting mix of traditional Chinese-style pagodas and Western architecture like wide tree-lined boulevards and French villas. Now the most populated city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh boasts a skyline of modern skyscrapers but also has its history carefully preserved in historic buildings such as the Reunification Palace, a great iconic landmark and reminder of the bitter wars between the French and American colonial powers that once took place on Vietnamese soil.
