Getting to the best places in Italy!
Are you going to fly direct to Italy? Or with a single stop? In both cases, traveling to Italy from most places in the world is easy. Most visitors fly into Rome Fiumicino (FCO) international airport but you can also easily fly into Milan Malpensa (MXP), Venice Marco Polo (VCE) or Pisa into Galileo Galilei (PSA) from all around the world.
Flight to Italy – Best deals
Between local agencies and travel sites, we mostly suggest finding your ticket on Skyscanner, CheapoAir, or Google flights to source the best flight deals for Italy. To get the best deals you can set up alerts on Skyscanner for the period you plan to travel and wait for the best price. It is usually cheaper to fly into Milan rather than Rome but that is only if you are going to visit northern Italy.
Where to go?
Probably, this is the hardest decision you need to make – where to go! Italy is such an amazing place and it is quite difficult to say what places to visit if you are short on time. This is a very difficult task for many of us and it is always a challenge.
We are listing below the most popular places to visit in Italy that you may want to visit.
- Cities – Florence, Rome, Venice, Milan, Naples.
- Tuscany – a large region well-known for hilltop towns, wineries and beautiful countryside.
- Cinque Terre – 5 villages that land along the sides of cliffs on the Italian Riviera.
- Amalfi Coast – a picturesque coastal region near Naples – Sorrento, Positano, Capri.
- Northern Italian lakes – scenic lakes close to alpine mountain ranges.
What we suggest:
For a 3-5 day trip choose one destination – a city or region.
If you have a week to 10 days then 1-3 places in either the north OR south of Italy.
If you have 2 weeks, you could visit 3-4 places and see both the south and north.

MONEY AND BUDGET
The local currency in Italy is the € Euro. You don’t have to carry too much cash when you are in Italy. Credit and debit cards VISA and Mastercard are widely accepted while American Express is not as popular.
Be aware of foreign currency charges and ATM withdrawal fees applied to your account when you are abroad. You may want to review the cards you are taking with you prior to your trip. To feel comfortable, take two – one as a back up for emergencies.
Apart from major transport, accommodation and activity costs (eg custom tours and experiences) expect to spend around €30 – 50 per person per day on food and snacks. We allocate another €50 per adult for tours, tickets, day travel, and other items. This is a generous budget and it is possible to travel much more cheaply in Italy.
