Best things to do and see in Italy

How long does it take to fly to Italy?

You’ll find plenty of flights to Italy out of three of Australia’s main cities with busy international airports, Sydney Melbourne and Brisbane. You can catch planes to Naples from either of these cities. They take about 29h and 40min, flying on a combination of Qantas Airways and British Airways. Other Italy flights depart from Sydney and Melbourne bound for Milan, after a flight that will last between about 24h on Qatar Airways out of Melbourne, and 25h and 30min travelling on Emirates out of Sydney. If you want to fly to Rome, you can book tickets on airlines departing from Melbourne that will take around 24h, and from Sydney that will see you arriving at Rome in around 26h. Choose Qatar Airways for take-off from the former, and Singapore Airlines from the latter. You can also fly on Emirates from Sydney to Rome in about 31h. Some of the longer, cheap flights are also flown by Qantas and Singapore Airlines, with a total travel time of about 33h. These both leave from Sydney. If you’re in Queensland you can also fly to Italy from Brisbane. These flights take anything from about 24h on Singapore Airlines to roughly 29h on Emirates, landing predominantly in Rome and Milan.

Can you get direct flights to Italy from Australia?

Currently, there are no non-stop flights from Australia to Italy, but you’ll be able to minimise your travel time by catching some of the one-stop flights leaving from Australian airports. The quickest of these is the one leaving from Melbourne Tullamarine Airport (MEL) heading to Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP), making a single stop at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN). These take about 23h and 15min. You can also fly between the same airports in about 24h on Qatar Airways. If you prefer to fly from New South Wales, Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport offers flights of about 23h and 20min to Naples International Airport (NAP), stopping over at Dubai International Airport (DXB) on the way. Others take around 23h and 45min to MXP, flying on Singapore Airlines via Singapore Changi. There are also 25h flights from Sydney to MXP on Cathay Pacific, stopping at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) on the way. From Brisbane Airport (BNE) you can also fly to Milan on Singapore Airlines via Changi Airport, which will take just over 24h.

What is the best way to travel around Italy?

Rome, Italy’s capital, is roughly in the centre of the country, so it’s equally easy to reach both Milan and Naples from here. Naturally you can fly between the two. From Rome you can catch your flight at Fiumicino Airport and land at Milan Linate Airport (LIN) in about 1h and 10min. You can also catch a train that will take about 3h and 40min, or enjoy a night train ride of about 10h and 40min. By bus the trip takes about 7h and 30min. You can also fly south to Naples in about 50min, or catch a train that takes roughly 1h and 15min. If you prefer the bus, the journey will take just over 2h and 30min. If you want to visit other major centres in Italy, you can fly to Venice from Rome in about 1h, and from Naples in roughly 1h and 15min. We don’t recommending flying from Milan to Venice, however, as you’ll travel via Rome, which is a pretty long detour south. You may prefer to catch a train, which will get you there in about 2h and 30min.

Does an Australian citizen need a passport or visa to fly to Italy?

As an Australian citizen you will only need a passport to enter Italy; you won’t need a visa if you are planning to stay for under 90 days. You just need to make sure that your passport will be valid for at least three months from your return date. You will have to show your return ticket, however.
