4 Tips to Fly from the USA to Italy Conveniently and in Style

Guest article by

Going from Los Angeles to Italy can be stressful if you have never traveled to Europe before.

From preparing your luggage to getting all your documents in order, the process may be far more complicated than flying anywhere in the United States. So, it's important to take certain measures to travel comfortably and without any worries.

1. Look for Great Deals in Advance

Whether you're looking for an easy flight from Los Angeles to Naples, Venice, Florence or any other major Italian city, it's essential to keep track of your budget. Book online, and make sure to use the best online services to do so. It will help a lot since plane tickets from LA to any city in Italy can be in high demand, especially during the holiday season. Looking for flights up to 3 months in advance can make a lot of sense because of that, so make sure to plan your itinerary accordingly.

Once you've arrived in Italy, consider exploring the stunning Amalfi Coast. In particular, don't miss out on experiencing the enchanting beauty of Positano. From its colorful cliffside buildings to its picturesque beaches, there are plenty of things to do in Positano that will make your trip unforgettable.

2. Always Double Check Your Airports

Italian experts often recommend flying domestically rather than using the train or taking a bus. However, that means you could miss your next flight as soon as you arrive in Italy. Always double-check your flights and check to see how far apart your airports are, before booking any of your tickets. Even if you need to pay more for a better flight, it can happen that the distance between local airports is too great for you to catch your next plane.

So, keep that in mind when you plan your itinerary, and allow for a buffer of time to make sure you don't get left behind. It's important to do so, even if it means having to spend the night at a hotel in Naples, before flying to your next destination.

3. Travel Light and Comfortable

It also pays to travel light or have your heavier luggage picked up in advance. You'll be able to travel much more comfortably to Italy that way, and to avoid delays when checking in your luggage. In fact, you might want to consider checking in online. Moreover, it will help to take off any belts, rings, bracelets, and other jewelry, as you'll have an easier time going through security.

4. Have Your Documents Ready and Leave Nothing Out

People who took a flight from Los Angeles to Venice, Rome or Naples in the past year or so can tell you that it pays to have your passport, ID card, health certificate and every other official document at the ready when you travel to Italy. Italy was one of the hardest-hit European countries at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. As a result, the restrictions and measures employed for tourists arriving at their airports were taken up a few levels.

Before your flight, make sure you have everything with you and that none of your documents are expired. Failing to do so can lead to a great deal of stress and anxiety.

Note that the requirements for traveling to Italy (or any other European country, for that matter) are constantly changing. So always stay informed about new changes regarding any of the tests, forms, and measures you have to be up to date with, prior to finalizing your travel plans.

Other than that, the tips mentioned here should help you get through most hurdles just fine. Overall, traveling to Italy should be more straightforward and enjoyable than you can even imagine!
