Where to go in Italy
We currently offer flights to Rome, Venice, Verona and Milan, but that doesn't mean you can't explore other areas of the country on a break in Italy with Monarch. We have put together a selection of holiday packages to destinations including Lake Como, Lake Garda, southern Italy and the Neapolitan Riviera, so you won't be restricted about where you go.
Here's just a taste of what you can expect in some of the destinations we travel to.
• Neapolitan Riviera – This covers the Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, as well as the islands of Capri and Ischia. There is lots to see and do here, with picturesque beaches lining the coast, historical sites – like Pompeii – to capture your imagination and beautiful seaside towns to discover. A drive along the famous Amalfi Coast road is a must if you have time.
• Venice – The ultimate romantic Italian holiday destination. If you want to escape with your partner for a loved-up retreat, this city crisscrossed by canals is the place to go. See the sights – like the Rialto Bridge and the Ca' d'Oro – as you cruise down the Grand Canal in a gondola, or admire the artworks on display in the famous Gallerie dell'Accademia.
• Milan – This northern Italian city is renowned for its fashion industry, as well as its amazing architecture. If you want a city break where you can shop until you drop, this is the place to come, while culture vultures will love discovering Milan's medieval abbeys, Renaissance architecture and vibrant museums.

Choose Monarch for your holiday to Italy
We are the UK's leading independent tour operator and all of our holidays are ATOL protected, to give you extra peace of mind when you book with us.
As we offer such a wide variety of holidays to Italy, you're bound to find something that appeals to you, while our site displays handy comparisons of how much it costs to visit different locations throughout the year, allowing you to narrow down your options to meet your budget.
Of course, if you only need flights or accommodation, we can help with that too, as it's possible to book these components of your trip separately, rather than as part of a package.
