Travelling to Italy

One of the great things about travelling to Italy is the sheer number of flights from across the UK making it cheap and easy to get to. Ryanair has paved the way in ultra low cost flying, as well as opening up lesser known cities and regions of Italy like Perugia in Umbria or Bari in Puglia. Despite the love-hate relationship with many customers, this can make a city break in Italy very affordable.

Booking Protection

Especially in light of Coronavirus, we always recommend booking your flight and hotel together as a financially protected package through the ABTA and ATOL schemes. This is possible with top travel agents and tour operators like Jet2holidays, Expedia, and Citalia.

The classic city break destination, Rome's popular tourist traps are definitely worth visiting at least once, although there are so many incredible places away from the main sights to discover.

Venice is a wonderful city, although a little costlier. Spending time on the water is a great way to see the city, but taking to the narrow alleys and bridges by foot is the most incredible way to get lost and find quaint little eateries.

8. Bologna

Bologna is another one of those Italian treats just waiting to be discovered. From the Piazza Grande to the impressive Duomo, Bologna is an excellent way to spend a weekend break.
