Monarch’s new flights to Italy are a ‘runway’ success!
Monarch’s new routes to Italy have been commemorated with an extraordinary project. To celebrate the launching of new flights to Milan, Rome, Verona and Venice, Monarch unveiled some spectacular 3D artwork on its Gatwick runway.
The artwork, a big hit amongst passengers and onlookers, features a display of Roman gladiators, opera singers and Venice’s famed gondolas. Monarch’s new routes to Italy’s finest cities are the next step in the company’s plan to become Britain’s premier affordable airline service. So what can these new destinations offer travellers in search of the perfect city break?
One of the cities now served by Monarch is Rome
Boasting more than 2,500 years of history and a wealth of historic monuments and cultural landmarks, Rome offers much to see and do for travellers. One of the city’s top attractions is the iconic Coliseum, a symbol of the strength and tyranny of Ancient Rome. Nearby attractions include the Markets of Trajan, the Roman Forum and the spectacular Forum of Augustus. Another unmissable sight is the Vatican City, the epicentre of the Roman Catholic faith and home to landmarks like St. Peter’s Basilica, St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican Museum.
Milan is another fabulous Italian city now served by Monarch
The city’s top landmark is the magnificent Dumo di Milano, a world-famous Gothic cathedral. Milan is also home to a wealth of museums and cultural institutions like Sforzesco Castle, the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum and the Pinacoteca di Brera, one of the world’s most prestigious art galleries. No forgetting Milan’s shopping scene, which is almost unrivalled in the world.
Verona is a beautiful and historic city located in Northeast Italy
It offers a wide array of great attractions and landmarks such as the Arena, a symbol of Ancient Rome, as well as the Roman Amphitheatre, the Verona Cathedral, Porta Borsari and the elegant Lamberti Tower. The city is also noted for being the setting of William Shakespeare’s celebrated ‘Romeo and Juliet’, and you can visit the balcony from the famous play.
Finally, the world-famous city of Venice
This is another top destination now reachable on a Monarch flight. Known for its iconic canals, this romantic city is home to sites like the Grand Canal, the Bell Tower of St. Mark, the Rialto Bridge and the breathtaking Basilica di San Marco.
