Italy Short-term Visitor Visa C – For Tourism and Sight-seeing:
Italy attracts approximately 50 million tourists from all over the world each year. Some of them enter the country with just a passport and/or ID, while others needed to apply for an Italy Tourist Visa beforehand. A Tourist Visa for Italy is simply a Schengen Visa with the purpose of tourism. That’s because Italy is part of the Schengen Agreement which consists of 26 Eurpoean countries that have established visa-free travel among them. So, if you want to travel to Italy for tourism purposes, you may have to apply for a Schengen visa. Your Schengen tourist visa for Italy will allow you free travel to the other Schengen countries as well within the time that the visa is valid.

Most of the Pakistani exports to Italy consist of textiles and clothing and leather apparel.
