Viaggio Italiano is Andrea Bocelli's third studio album and first classical album.

The album features some of the most popular opera arias and Neapolitan songs of all time, such as Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio and la Donna è Mobile. Although released only in Italy in 1996, it sold close to 300,000 copies.[2] Bocelli later received the ECHO Klassik "Best seller of the year" award for the album, after its international release, in 1997.[3]
