With holiday villas and apartments all over Italy, holidaymakers booking their accommodation through Bookings For You are likely to be flying into one of a number of airports in Italy, the most common being Pisa, Milan, Verona, Rome, Olbia, Naples and Venice.

To help you plan your journey we have listed below the best modes of transport from your arrival airport in Italy to the closest major city. The respective costs of each are also listed.
