Pick a destination
Know before you go to Italy
There are so many highlights in this beautiful country, from the canals of Venice to the Tuscan wine lands to the ancient Colosseum of Rome to the rivers running through Florence… and much more.
Rome is one of the most iconic and most traveled cities in Europe where you could spend days getting lost in this destination. Besides Rome, there is Milan, the fashion center of the world, where you can find every piece of clothing that you ever desired.
Best time to visit Italy?
If you are from Europe it is pretty cheap to go to Italy anytime, but the cheapest time of year to visit Italy is in the winter. From December to March, the cold weather keeps most travelers at the coast, and you can explore the country’s incredible museums and galleries to as much your heart wants.
However, there really is no place like Italy in the summer. Even if it’s crowded, it’s amazing!
What to expect in Italy
Language in Italy
As you may have guessed the main language spoken in Italy is Italian, and you will rarely hear English or any other language from locals.
Currency in Italy
As Italy is in the European Union the main currency is Euro, and you can easily change it if going from a country that does not have Euros as its main currency.
Credit Cards and ATMs
There are ATMs almost everywhere and you can easily change money even in small towns in Italy. You can easily pay with cards in most restaurants and shops that you visit.
Is Italy safe?
While Italy is generally a safe destination for travelers, the one thing you need to watch out for is pickpocketers. Always keep your eyes on your belongings and invest in an anti-theft backpack to ensure you don’t lose any of your valuables. I personally have Loctote bag which has been amazing for me.
Getting around Italy
I loved traveling through Italy by train or bus — you can sit back and relax as you cross the beautiful countryside, plus they are very efficient and offer many high-speed routes.
