Map of the main international airports for Italy

Italy has a number of international airports. Given the long and narrow geography of the country it's useful to determine which airport is best for reaching the region you want to visit. The two largest airports in Italy are the "Leonardo da Vinci" airport in Rome, commonly know as Fiumicino, and Malpensa, for Milan. Visitors to Sicily should fly to the "Falcone Borsellino" in Palermo, while for Sardinia you should aim for the Cagliari airport.

For Tuscany the main airport is the "Galileo Galilei" in Pisa, but Genoa, Bologna and Roma are all good alternatives. For more information on reaching Tuscany, have a look at our Guide to getting to Tuscany.
