France's neighbouring country, Italy is a dream of beautiful landscapes, beaches, famous museums and delicious gastronomy. Depending on your time of travel you can get there by car or train, but flights to Italy remain the fastest and most convenient choice. What's more, you can find cheap flights to Italy, through a low-cost carrier, for next to nothing. There are a number of daily direct flights available to airports in Italy which provide easy access to the major cities, such as Rome, Milan, Pisa and Naples. Direct flights will take between 2 to 3 hours, depending on the destination. Take note that prices vary considerably depending on the time of year; summer and Christmas are the highest priced periods for travel.
Whether you're looking for Italy flights in order to discover the country's rich cultural history, shop in its stylish boutiques or sample the best pizza, Easy Voyage can help you to find the best flight deals. The competition between the array of budget airlines serving Italy help to keep flight tickets at a relatively cheap price all year round and depending on the time of year direct flights to Italy from London can be found for under £100. This spectacular destination is home to a wide variety of attractions which makes it easy to tailor Italy holidays to your own unique tastes. The most popular sites which spring to mind are, of course, the precarious Leaning Tower of Pisa, Rome's magnificent Colosseum, Florence's awe-inspiring artwork and the beautiful canals in Venice. Nevertheless, why not find direct flights to Italy and discover some of the country's lesser known gems such as the mountains in the Aoste Valley, the lakes in Lombardy or the cobbled streets in Asolo. You could even search for cheap flights to one of the Italian islands lying off the tip of the country's boot for the best beaches and hottest weather in Italy. Without a doubt the best time to find flights to Italy is in the spring, from April to June. Of course, that is unless you want to go skiing in the northern mountains, in which case winter is the time for you! The spring sees the temperatures all over the country starting to rise but doesn't coincide with the high tourist season so you can make the most of swimming in the clear waters or exploring the cultural attractions without having to watch out for the hoards of travellers. In addition, not only are Italy flights significantly cheaper in the spring than in the summer, but accommodation is also less expensive and you don't have to worry about resorts closing for their own holidays.
