Aer Lingus fly to 12 Italian destinations from Dublin and Jet2 fly from Belfast to Verona. Flavio told Declan Mescall (Features Editor Travelbiz) Italy has 55 UNESCO world Heritage Sites and is the most popular destination for Irish weddings and honeymoons. Other key reasons for travel to Italy are art & culture, luxury, opera, food, nature and sport.
