Italy is amongst the top 5 tourist destinations in the world and that is for many reasons. For instance, the attractions it has to offer, its modern infrastructure, the opening of the borders with other EU countries and its commitment to providing quality tourist services has led to the amazing increase of visitors who come to Italy in their millions every year. Italy is accessible by air, land and sea. You can fly to Italy, drive to Italy, walk to Italy, cycle to Italy. You can use an airplane, a sea liner, a cruise ship, a yacht, the train, a car, a caravan or a Vespa scooter.
All this is not an exaggeration. Every year thousands (if not millions) of cyclists from neighboring France enter Italy and join their Italian piers for weekend tours of the country. If you prefer flying, Italian airports are of excellent fame and connect Italy with the rest of the world with safety and precision. There is an extensive network connecting major Italian cities to the varying airports and the service is always excellent. If you are using a sea connection to or from Greece, you will find that three major Italian ports (Ancona, Bari, Brindezi) offer great service and along with the luxurious fast ferry liners will make your journey an experience to remember. You may also meet the port of Venice as part of a Mediterranean cruise.
Trains and train stations in Italy are a dream. After the war in former Yugoslavia, you could only enter Italy through Austria, Switzerland and France, which is already quite substantial in terms of border. Nowadays, all countries that have a border with Italy allow passage into the country via rail. It would be unfair to other countries to say that Italy has the best railways in Europe but Italians love their trains and that says it all. Italians also love their cars and driving into Italy in your car is not at all a bad idea.
We had a great time!
