With Alitalia to Venice17.12.2014
On 15 December 2014, Alitalia flight AZ439 departed Berlin Tegel right on time at 17:10 and headed for Venice, Italy. As part of a codeshare arrangement with airberlin, the Italian airline will from now on be providing daily connections between the Berlin capital region and airports at Venice, Milan Linate and Rome. An Embraer 175 aircraft with 88 seats is being operated on all routes. Travellers can choose between two classes. The classic on-board service including a snack and drink is provided for passengers in the “Classica” economy class. The “Ottima” business class features additional space and on-board comfort; the fare furthermore includes two items of baggage as well as access to the SkyTeam lounges. The flights give business travellers and holidaymakers access to convenient onward connections to southern Italian destinations like Palermo.
The current flight schedule provides daily flights to the three destinations with the following times:
The lagoon city on the Adriatic is a popular destination for around 20 million tourists a year. With its narrow streets and countless bridges over the many canals, this car-free city is ideal for leisurely walks. While enjoying a cappuccino on St Mark's Square, visitors can watch the hustle and bustle of the city backdropped by two of its famous landmarks, St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. Venice has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.
With a population of 1.3 million, Milan is the second biggest city in Italy after Rome and is famous as the fashion capital. Milan’s large collection of fine arts also means this north Italian city lives up to its reputation as a cultural metropolis. The Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, for instance, contains “The Last Supper” by Leonardo Da Vinci.
According to mythology, the Eternal City was founded in 753 B.C. on seven hills. Rome had flourished as the capital of the Roman Empire, and in 1871 it became the capital of Italy. With its many historical buildings it is not just a destination for tourists; a large number of pilgrims also swarm to the holy city to see the Pope in the Vatican. The Vatican City is an enclave in Rome and is an independent state – the smallest generally recognised state in the world.
