Destinations in Italy served by Finnair
- No visit to Italy is complete without seeing Rome. There’s the Vatican, the Colosseum and Old Rome, which is the UNESCO-listed Renaissance centre of the city.
- Modern Milan is Italy’s sleek and sophisticated northern capital. If you’re a lover of classy shopping then treat yourself to a visit.
- Venice is unique in the world. This semi-submerged architectural wonder should be on everyone’s list of places to see, preferably by gondola!
- You can’t talk about Pisa without mentioning the famous leaning tower. Bear in mind though that the whole town is filled with such towers, but they don’t lean as much.
- A visit to Rimini is a great idea if you love history and you love the beach; it has plenty of both. It is Italy’s premier beach town and has been since it was founded by the Romans in 286BC.
- Naples is a glorious city that commands an amazing location looking out over the spectacular bay of Naples at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. It’s a large modern city with a stunning historic heart.
- Verona is, of course, the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but it is also of great historical interest and the centre of the town is now a World Heritage Site.
- Catania is a bustling Sicilian city that sits at the foot of mighty Mount Etna.
Typical food and drink in Italy
Everyone knows the classic Italian dishes since Italian food is one of the world’s most popular cuisines. But getting a takeaway pizza delivered to your home is a million miles away from trying the real thing in Italy itself. Italians are obsessed with their food and so they should be – it’s fantastic. Try everything!
