Flight to Italy
Italy is and will always be a dream destination for lots of tourists who want to discover Europe and its splendour. Planning a trip to Italy means organizing a holiday that will be as rich as it is entertaining.
The famous “boot” is for the most part surrounded by the sea, except for the North which shares borders with France, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia. Italy is a country filled with relief, as three quarters of it are in fact hills or mountains.
The climate is extremely pleasant, and the country boasts long, hot and sunny days. You can visit Italy all year round, but spring and autumn are the best seasons for avoiding the crows, tourists and heat waves. You could also plan your trip to Italy during the winter! The prices are clearly more attractive, the crows have disappeared and the climate is perfectly pleasant in most regions. Why not try yourself at some winter sports: skiing in the Italian Alps and down the Mont Blanc is a memorable experience for any enthusiast!
To prepare your trip to Italy perfectly, remember that there is a 6-hour time difference with New York, that knowing a few words of Italian could come in handy (although tourist destinations will be used to English-speakers), and that you will need to have some Euros on you.
