Although there are no direct flights from Italy, you could easily arrive in Tanzania thanks to its three international airports served by many and also European airlines. Furthermore, there is an important number of minor airports and airstrips for national and private flights. The choice of the airport or the arrival and departure airports depends essentially on the circuit and the kind of vacation you have chosen.
