Southern Italy Travel Tips

International Airline services fly to Rome, Naples and Palermo in southern Italy. Transportation links within the region are generally slower than in the north, particularly inland and on the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Coastal road and rail links are good, however, especially those linking to Rome and Naples, the region’s main transportation hubs. Two trans-Apennine highways offer the quickest cross-country routes for traveling.

If you are traveling to Sicily orSardinia, you can use ferries that operate to Sicily from Naples to Villa San Giovanni. Further travel connections include boats from Malta and Tunisia. Ferries run to Sardinia from several mainland ports, notably from Genoa.

While traveling to Rome by road you can use highway links that approach Rome from Naples, Pescara, and Florence. All the roads feed into the city’s ring road, the Grande Raccordo Anulare.
