A beautiful country with an enduring appeal, Italy is located on the Italian peninsula in Southern Europe. France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia surround Italy's northern edge of the Alpine mountains.
Be it Rome, boasting of its grand monument, the coliseum, or the renaissance palaces and medieval churches; the romantic city of Venice with its canals, gondola rides, museums and churches; Florence boasting of its museums and Renaissance architectural and art centers; the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa; Milan's famous Duomo and fashion hub; Naples historic treasures; Sicily's home of art and architecture; Turin for its museums and historic cafe; Genoa, the principal seaport; or the Vatican city with its St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel, Italy is home to many sites well worth a visit. The best time to visit Italy is from April to September.
It is cheaper to fly to Venice than Rome or Milan. You can then take flights from Venice to other cities in Italy. Discounted fares can be obtained from Quantas and Thai Airways. Also, flights from Perth to Italy are cheaper.
