Italy Holiday

Admire the greatest works of Michelangelo and da Vinci, see the center of Catholicism and pose with the Leaning Tower of Pisa on this Mediterranean peninsula.

Italy began as a collection of city-states. Today each of its many cities still feels like its own little world with its own set of world-famous treasures: beautiful cathedrals and important da Vinci paintings. Move from city to city, investigating relics from the Roman Empire, some of the world’s largest and most spectacular churches and some of the best-known pieces of Renaissance art.

Start in Rome, the center of the world for both Catholics and classicists. See legendary Roman architecture and artifacts, including the 50,000-seat Colosseum, Rome’s ancient administrative center at the Roman Forum and the Pantheon. Then, step into Vatican City at Rome’s core, where the Pope’s residence is located. Walk along Saint Peter’s Square to reach Saint Peter’s Basilica, the largest basilica in the world and Catholicism’s holiest site. See Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel in one of the Vatican museums.

Head north to the region of Tuscany, with the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Florence. Tour the city’s main art museums to see crowning achievements in Italian art, including Michelangelo’s David at the Galleria dell'Accademia delle Belle Arti and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus at the Uffizi Gallery. In the nearby city of Pisa, see one of Europe’s biggest attractions, the Campo dei Miracoli complex with its leaning Bell Tower. Finally, enjoy a tour of Tuscany’s wine country, including the famous Chianti region.

Italy’s northernmost region has two more great cities: Venice and Milan. Take a gondola tour along the Canal Grande of Venice. Then, head to Milan to see its Duomo, one of the most ornate Gothic cathedrals in Europe. Nearby, the relatively modest Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie features da Vinci’s Last Supper.

Arrive in Italy by flying into an international airport in Rome, Milan or Venice. Get around the country by car or train. If you need to rest after exploring all of Italy’s major cities, take a boat to the relaxing Mediterranean islands of Sicily or Sardinia.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Italy?

A: If you're basing yourself in the centre of Rome or Milan for a day or two, perhaps not. But if you're going to stay for longer and want to explore the region of Rome or farther afield, go for it. There's nothing like the freedom you get with your own wheels. With our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Italy, finding the right vehicle has never been easier.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Italy?

A: Although Italy has its fair share of airports, international flights typically fly into one of these major terminals:

  • Rome (FCO-Fiumicino - Leonardo da Vinci Intl.): 8,608 international flights per month.
  • Milan (MXP-Malpensa Intl.): 6,325 international flights per month.
  • Venice (VCE-Marco Polo): 2,802 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Italy?

A: Italy has a wealth of options for all sorts of budgets. If you're chasing a break from the everyday, there are plenty of apartments. Hotels, bed & breakfasts and guest houses are also a hit with visitors.

Q: What does an Italy holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Convenient flights, welcoming hotels and a great rental car to hit the streets in — and that's not all there is. Expedia also has a wonderful selection of adventures and experiences. Browse what's on offer and start arranging your ideal holiday in Italy.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Italy?

A: At Expedia, we work hard to find you the best deals. So, when you combine your Flight and Hotel, you can be sure you're going to save a pretty penny. Plan your next getaway with us and touchdown in Italy with a little extra money in your pocket.

Q: What are the best things to do in Italy?

A: Rome has plenty of attractions to visit. St. Peter's Basilica, Roman Forum and Pantheon are three must-sees.

If you find yourself in Milan, get your skates on and head to Cathedral of Milan, Piazza del Duomo and Teatro alla Scala. These renowned icons have been visited by many travellers from all four corners of the globe.

Finally, if you're staying solely in Naples, you'll want to pack in as much exploring as you possibly can. Here, the residents will steer you to Herculaneum, Castel dell'Ovo and Naples National Archaeological Museum.
