There are many reasons to visit Italy – from the magnificence of Rome to the beauty of Tuscany. However, one of the newest reasons to visit one of Europe’s oldest countries involves throwing yourself out of a plane and hurtling towards the ground. That’s because Italy skydive adventures are getting more and more popular.
There are lots of dropzones to choose from in Italy. From a dropzone just south of Rome near Anzio to several large northern sites near Reggio Emilia, Cremona and Casale Monferrato. With good transport links, dropzones are accessible and each comes with its own distinct advantages.
As you might expect, skydiving over the beautiful Italian countryside is an unforgettable experience. A special mention must go to the dropzone near Pesaro on Italy’s Adriatic coast, which predictably comes with some very spectacular views. Plus it’s very close to the incredible seaside resort of Rimini where you can enjoy a spot of elegant relaxation.
Italy skydive schools offers top quality instruction at very reasonable prices, meaning it’s cheaper to jump there than it is in the UK. You also have the added advantage of being able to combine it with a holiday. However, serious jumpers will also appreciate the lower costs on longer skydiving trips – making the journey completely worthwhile. You can expect to pay between €1,200 and €1,500 for a complete course compared to around £1,500 plus fees in the UK.
Many people choose to combine an Italy skydive adventure with holidays in Rome, the capital. One of the most historic and romantic cities in the world, Rome is definitely worth a visit either before or after your adrenaline-fuelled adventure. It makes a nice contrast between the two and shows off two very different and distinct sides to Italy.
