Italy Travel Tips: What To Expect When Visiting Italy
Italy is one of the most beautiful and cultural countries I have ever visited. From the massive touristy city of Rome to the quaint picturesque city of Florence (where I lived for a summer) to fashion in Milan to hiking in Lake Como to the leaning tower of Pisa, to the canals of Venice, to the wine lands of Tuscany to the islands and shores of Capri and the Amalfi Coast to the Italian Alps skiing in the winter, there is literally something for everyone when visiting Italy. There are so many different types of trips you could plan to visit Italy you need far more than just one.
Italy is on the Euro so it makes it easy! $1 USD is equal to about .80 Euros (at this moment).
Italian! But in the tourist cities everyone speaks English!
Other Italy Travel Tips
- For all of my travel/packing essentials I bring on any trip compiled together, head to my influencer page on Amazon here for a complete list or my descriptive carry-on packing guide here!
- Read this descriptive Italy packing list before your next trip.
- Travel Insurance: When visiting Italy, I highly recommend getting travel insurance. You never know what may happen to your flights, a death/personal emergency in your family, or an accident happening while traveling (think: getting mugged, falling while hiking and spraining your ankle, literally any accident than can happen ANYWHERE!). World Nomads makes it super easy and I never leave for a trip without getting their insurance. Most importantly it’s extremely affordable: get your World Nomads travel insurance before your trip here!
