Getting Around Italy

Travel to Italy

There are infinite itineraries and tours that allow visitors to explore Italy, a unique country known worldwide for the variety of its landscapes where you can admire the sea, mountains, hills and valleys. There are also various ways to move around the country in close contact with the warmth, friendliness and hospitality of locals.

Whether by car, train, camper, coach, boat, scooter or bike, visitors can explore the main cities, travelling in between them, or leave the typical touristic routes and visit the off the beaten track towns and villages to find the true heart of the Italian lifestyle. All the main cities are connected with frequent daily flights. The rail network is spread over more than 10,000 miles, offering uniform coverage throughout Italy. The dense network of motorways, dual carriageways and trunk roads, enable visitors to reach any location in the country by car or motorbike.

How to get there

The rules for travelling or working in European countries changed on 1 January 2021:

Italy offers excellent air links with the rest of the world, but also train, ferry, or motorway connections with other European or Mediterranean countries. A wide range of flights are available from both traditional and low-cost airlines, covering a vast array of destinations. 


The main airports for intercontinental and international arrivals are the Leonardo da Vinci airport in Rome Fiumicino, Malpensa in Milan and Marco Polo in Venice, but there are many other international airports located across the country. There are also plenty of domestic connections with frequent services from Rome-Fiumicino and Milan-Malpensa to all the other airports in Italy, making it simple and convenient to reach the islands of Sicily, Sardinia or the smaller ones from the mainland. 

There are almost 40 small and medium-sized airports, covering every region except for the regions of Molise and Basilicata. All the airports are serviced by a network of taxis, buses and trains, which allow commuters to reach any final destination with ease.
