Many reasons lure private jet travellers to Italy, the country with more Unesco World Heritage cultural sites than any other place on Earth. Italy’s finer things include staggering art and architecture at every turn. Frescoes from Giotto adorn chapels in Padua and Assisi, while works from geniuses like Botticelli, Michelangelo and da Vinci can be found in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City or in the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. Museum curators and art collectors fly to Italy by private jet year-round. Travellers also adore the Italian food scene of course, from Piedmont’s truffle and Tuscany’s wine, to one of the world’s most influential chefs, Massimo Bottura, and his three-Michelin-star restaurant based in Modena.
Italian cities and regions
Corporate travellers regularly fly to Milan, where they can combine leisure with business and enjoy prestigious evenings at La Scala, visit Italy’s most important museum solely dedicated to industrial design: the Triennale Design Museum, attend international trade fairs and appreciate exclusive spas, bars and hotels signed by Italian fashion houses. On top of being Italy’s most business-focused city, Milan also hosts the highest number of restaurants recognised with Michelin stars.
Some private jet movements to and from Rome are made for professional purposes, too. For instance, stars from the Italian film and TV industry travel in and out of Cinecittà Studios. May it be for business or leisure, history experts and art enthusiasts fly to Rome to experience a stroll through the ancient capital of the world, and contemplate the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, but also roman fountains by Bernini and paintings by Caravaggio.
Vacationers often choose to fly to Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE) to reach Venice, a romantic lagoon on the Adriatic Sea: 118 small islands connected by bridges and canals. Numerous visitors are impressed by the Grand Canal, the Palazzo Ducale and Basilica di San Marco; fascinated by one of the largest collections of contemporary art in the world exhibited at the Punta della Dogana and fine operas at the Teatro La Fenice.
Sardinia is another prized holiday destination, especially during the summer. Private jet travellers can land in the northeast of the island for example, at Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport (OLB), popular gateway to the Emerald Coast and to the glamorous Porto Cervo.
Beautiful days of vacation can also be spent in historic villas on Lake Como; tasting wine in the Maremma region or skiing in the prestigious resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo.
A myriad of other Italian places can be reached by private jet: for instance, the city centre of Florence is a Unesco World Heritage Site and may be worth a visit. Contact LunaJets for your private jets to Italy, we are on hand 24/7.
