Things to know before traveling to Italy

Think of what you wish from your vacation and we will customize it for you as only a local and expert travel agent can do…

What is the best time to visit Italy?

All times of the year are good to travel to Italy. Spring and autumn are the best period to visit the Art Cities, Rome, Milan, Florence, Pisa, Ravenna, Verona, Venice…, or the seaside resorts of southern Italy, the island of Capri, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, Apulia, Sicily..., especially if you do not like hot temperature.

To find good value you could visit the Italian Cities in certain months of the year (July, August, November, January, February...), it is true that for example in August some activities in the cities are closed, but you will avoid the long lines in museums and places of interest, enjoy outdoor cultural activities, scheduled during the summer in many Italian cities, and enjoy good sales in the Italian fashion shops.

I do not speak Italian, is it a problem?

Italy is a tourist country, and I am sure that if you ask for information you will find people helping you. Locals will also use sign language to make you understand. The younger generation usually speak English. Anyhow, learning a few words in Italian is useful and fun!

Is traveling in Italy expensive?

Compared to some European countries such as Spain or Portugal, traveling to Italy is more expensive, but it is worth it. The best thing on a budget is to travel at certain times of the year considered low season.

What is the currency in Italy? Can I use dollars or pounds?

The currency in Italy is the Euro. The best thing, if you have dollars or pounds or other coins, is to exchange your dollars for Euro at Italian banks or exchange offices, where often they do not charge additional fees. Credit and debit card payment is accepted everywhere

Is it safe to travel to Italy?

Italy is not dangerous, but you must pay attention to pickpockets, particularly pay attention to places of tourist interest and public transportation (metro, buses...). Do not leave your suitcases and bags unattended.
