The country in the south of Europe is shaped like a boot, has a very long coastline and beautiful mountains in the northern part. Besides the mainland, the islands of Sicily and Sardinia are worth a visit. People in Sardinia are speaking with a very particular dialect. Most of the Italian airports are more or less situated near the coast. This is caused by the special shape of the country. Due to the large number of airports in Italy, even the corners of the country are easily accessible by plane. Rome has two airports. The busiest airport is called Rome Fiumicino Airport, the smaller airport is named Rome Ciampino Airport. Rome Ciampino Airport is located the closest to the centre of Rome.
