Flights to Italy

Start your time in Italy by doing as the Romans do and visit the grand Pantheon in the eternal city of Rome. The monument is a sight out of the history books and one of the best preserved ancient Roman buildings. Next up on the list is the Roman Forum, a plaza of ruins that demonstrates how the Romans lived. Take the sky elevator to get a sweeping view of the beautiful Forum. Complete your tour of ancient Rome with a guided tour of the largest remaining Roman amphitheatre, the Colosseum, and appreciate the amazing wealth of history behind this renowned monument.

Stroll down the Trastevere neighbourhood in Rome to get away from the crowds. Offering tranquillity in the midst of traditional cobbled streets and old shop fronts, this is the place to go for an easy stroll. Those with a taste for the quirky can head to the Cappuchin Crypt or the Pasta Museum. Visit the outdoor food markets for a taste of everything Italian to round up your trip.

It is easy to get around Rome via the bus, subway or tram. However, it is best to beware of touts and pickpockets in the crowded t areas. To manoeuvre through the quaint streets and piazzas of Rome, you might want to get a bicycle, which is what many locals do. Do not count on flagging a taxi down because it is difficult to do so. Instead, get your hotel to book one for you in advance.

Venice, the city of romance, is also a favourite amongst travellers. Visit the St Mark’s Basilica, one of the most famous churches in Venice. Mosaics colour the walls’ interior from ground to ceiling, giving it a refined and polished look. Take a Grand Canal Tour to view the sights of Venice all at a go from the water, or learn more about the city’s traditional art of glass blowing by attending a demonstration at a factory. Up next, tour the Doge’s Palace and appreciate the beautiful interior. More importantly, you’ll get to walk on the famous Bridge of Sighs.

To get a taste of how the locals live, visit the markets where Venitians get their daily food supply, which will prove to be an experience of cultural exchange and fun. Of course, if your budget allows it, you can take a Gondola ride down the rivers of Venice.

Getting to Venice is easy either from Rome or from any part of the world by plane via the Marco Polo International Airport. Once there, transport is usually via the quick but pricey vaporetto or water taxi. You can also choose to explore the city on foot, as it is relatively small.

Visit Italy’s economic centre and fashion capital, Milan, where the headquarters of numerous international fashion brands are situated. The likes of Prada and Armani call Milan home. Besides the bustling fashion scene, be sure to visit the Teatro Alla Scala, a renowned opera house that is symbolic of the opera scene there. Go to the Duomo Cathedral for its Gothic architecture, or visit the impressive Castello Sforzesco for something from the Renaissance age. Be sure to catch Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous painting of The Last Supper in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie as well.

Getting to Milan is quickest via the Milan Malpensa Airport. Once there, be sure to grab a copy of the Milan Transportation Map, which shows the various subway lines to different destinations. The subway is the most commonly used transport facility in Milan, and takes you to places efficiently. However, if you are exploring the city centre, it would be good to go on foot as attractions are near each other.
