How to travel to Italy

Italy is very well connected with Europe and the rest of the world by many airlines. In addition, the railway and road / motorway networks are well developed.


Almost all major Italian cities have their own airport. The main ones are Milan Malpensa, Rome Fiumicino and Venice. Other important airports are those in Naples, Bergamo Orio al Serio, Verona, Catania, Bologna and Palermo. Plenty of flag carriers around the world have direct flights to Italy. In addition, there are many flights offered by low cost companies (Ryanair, Easyjet) that connect even the smaller cities with the rest of Europe, Morocco and the Middle East (Israel and Jordan).

If you come from countries such as Switzerland, France, Austria, or Germany, you can travel by long-distance trains. Once you arrive in Italy, you can use the extensive and modern rail network that connects all the major cities so you can easily access every corner of the country. Depending on your journey, you can travel by high-speed trains that connect small towns and larger cities, and as well as slower regional trains.
