Reasons to visit


Rome

Walk through the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, where Romulus, Julius Caesar and Nero once ruled… There is no other city like Rome. History, architecture, museums, great food, shopping, historical monuments, and great gelato :)

Vatican

Whether you are a faithful of the Catholic Church or not, it doesn’t matter. You, simply, should not miss Vatican City, the smallest state in the world.

Venice

Extremely colorful, full of life, amazing museums, great food, amazing shopping – one of the most fun places you’ll ever visit. But hurry, it’s slowly disappearing into the Adriatic :)

Florence

Birthplace of the Renaissance, full of wonderful art, architecture, and the finest museums in the world – Uffizi and the Galleria dell’ Accademia. Florence is one of the most stunning cities in the world.

Sicily

A world of its own. A melting pot of cultures. Mount Etna dominates the landscape and makes for an great day trip from either Taormina or Catania.

Cuisine

Italians know how to cook up some of the best meals in the world, using only natural ingredients, for vegetarians and meat lovers alike.

Need to know


Push - Pull

You push to enter a place, and pull to get out. Exactly the opposite as in America :)

Credit Cards

You can’t pay anything costing less than 10 Euros with a credit card, and even then you’re going to be frowned upon. Always bring cash!

Banks

Banks are only open in the morning and for one hour in the afternoon. You better do your banking in the morning.

Electricity

220V, 50hZ, european, you may need a plug-adapter.

Sizes

Sizes in Italy are unlike enywhere else, basically always smaller. So, make sure you really try before you buy :)

Tipping

Not necessary in Italy, but you can leave 10%, no one will complain either :)
