Since there are many flights from different cities, and the distance to different Italian cities is different, we arranged the data in a large table, which you see below.
Let's make a small note for the fans of independent travel. Direct flights to Italy are quite expensive, and often the prices for tickets are simply staggering. A round-trip ticket can cost 550 to 700 US dollars, although it's slightly longer than 3 hours to fly to Rome. For this price you can buy tickets to China or Thailand.
If you want to save, and you can seriously save money, we recommend buying low cost airlines with transfers in other European cities. Directly to Italy fly Aeroflot, Alitalia and Transaero and it's not the cheapest airlines. The only "budget" airline in this direction is Blu-express.
In order not to be unfounded, we will clearly illustrate the difference. On two pictures from the screen below, shows the cost of a direct flight from Moscow to Rome and the cost of a flight with a transfer.
The figures speak for themselves, fly to Rome by Air Serbia flights with a transfer in Belgrade is two times cheaper than flying a direct flight from Alitalia. Finally, the journey will take longer. To choose you, our goal is to inform you about the possibilities.
The most popular destinations.
The beach resort of Rimini on the Adriatic Sea coast enjoys the greatest popularity among Russians. The price for hotels here is one of the most accessible.
The airport of Rimini Miramare is designated as "RMI". It bears the name of the famous Italian filmmaker Frederic Fellini. Also nearby is the miniature state of San Marino, and this air port is also called Rimini San Marino.
The peculiarity of this airport is that according to statistics, Russian passengers occupy a large share of traffic. Russians here are the majority.
The airport itself is very small, it serves only 600,000 passengers a year. For comparison, Domodedovo airport serves 28 million passengers per year. Regular flights to the airport of Rimini almost do not land, and in winter it is almost empty. In summer, the main work of the air port is the reception of charter flights with tourists, mainly from Russia.
Rome's central international airport is much larger in size. Through its terminals pass up to 40 000 000 passengers annually. It is designated as "FCO", as its second name is Fiumicino Airport. The main name is given in honor of the famous artist of the "Renaissance" Leonardo da Vinci.
This is the base airport of Alitalia, the national carrier of Italy. Alitalia almost exclusively uses the first airport terminal (T1). There are four terminals in total, these are T1, T2, T3 and T5. Do not confuse, terminal T4 does not exist yet.
From the airport to the city there is an express train called Leonardo Express. Do not look at the appearance, it travels at a speed of no more than 60 kilometers per hour. Ride on it costs 14 euros.
If for you it is expensive, then there are even buses and the train is simpler and cheaper.
The Italians said that they will not be missed by the capacity of this airport and they are going to build another air port nearby. It will be called Fiumicino2 or Fiumicino Nord (northern).
The third major airport in Italy is Milan-Malpensa. The main of the three airports in Milan serves 18.5 million passengers per year. This is comparable to the capacity of Moscow's Domodedovo or Sheremetyevo air ports. Milan airport is designated as "MXP".
From here, too, goes express (Malpensa Express). It does not look as futuristic as the Roman Leonardo, but the speed develops higher. In 29 minutes it will take you to the city.
Milan is one of the industrial capitals of Italy and the center of clothing production and the main residence of many home of haute couture. Milan-Malpensa is the busiest airport in Italy.
Now a new terminal 1-C is being built here, but the deadlines for the completion of the construction are not exactly clear.
It is also the central Italian cargo airport, in just one year it passes up to 500,000 tons of cargo. For the cargo message, a separate terminal called CargoCity is allocated.
