Italy plane tickets & flights
When we hear about this country we think of so many things that one cannot describe Italy in one simple phrase...
If you decide to visit this country, then you will have to spend at least 2-3 weeks to see the top attractions that its most important regions have to offer... Otherwise if you are an adventurer and can afford a longer trip, then we recommend you to stay for a month and look around well.
The north is more prosperous than the south and has the best road, rail and airline connections. It is also considered to be safer and is more often visited by travelers. However, Italy is worth seeing thoroughly everywhere. If you can travel in a small group of friends, then it would be a great idea to see mainland Italy and also see Sardinia and Sicily its biggest islands. Of course, not every traveler has the time and money for all...
