Airports in Italy

Italy is a beautiful and romantic country with exquisite food and scenery to be enjoyed by you and your partner. You will be kept busy during your stay in this historically rich country. Italy is famous worldwide for its opera houses and is very much a part of their culture. There are also many different monuments and museums to visit if you want to soak up a bit of the history and traditions of Italy. Where ever you visit there are many hotels and cheap lodgings available and of course the cuisine is something we have all experienced in one way or another, but the authentic Italian cuisine cannot be replaced by our home made versions. Depending on the time of year you visit it would be good to research what events and festivals are on the go.

Something else you will be keen to look into is the airports in Italy that you will be using and will no doubt be a popular form of transport during your stay. The Bologna Airport provides both domestic and international flights and is only 6 kms northeast of Bologna. The Amerigo Vespucci Airport is quite a small airport near the city of Florence with only one runway. If you are visiting the capital you will probably use Rome Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) Airport, Italy’s biggest airport, 30kms from Rome.

In Milan there are three airports to choose from, the one being the Malpensa International Airport, which is near Milan in the Varese province. In the Capodichino district you will find the Naples International Airport, which serves Naples and the surrounding areas. Trieste Airport or Ronchi dei Legionari Airport is found near Trieste, the largest city and capital of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. This little airport won’t provide many amenities but the queues are short. The Palermo Airport is 35km from Palermo city providing many facilities to the passenger.
