Popular places

If you are travelling to Italy it is good to start with the two most popular places first – Rome and Venice. While Rome is impressive with its rich cultural past and history, Venice is known more as the water city with plenty of Gondolas that take you across the waters. There are plenty of attractions to see when travelling to Italy especially Rome. Right from the Church of Saint Agnese, to the Vatican, to Trevi Fountain, to the Coliseum, to Piazza Navona – you’ll find all these and much more to see. When in Rome you will find that almost every monument has a rich history behind it – which certainly adds to the mystery and charm of the place. If you have been fascinated by the Da Vinci Code written by Dan Brown, you might find the specialized DaVinci Code tours fascinating. Venice on the other hand is actually built over a lagoon – which accounts for its large waterfront. You’ll find plenty of cafes, restaurants and many friendly people along the way.

Long vacation

Italy is so culturally diverse that you need plenty of time at hand when travelling to Italy. Every region in the country has its own unique climate and culture which makes for a very interesting itinerary. There are plenty of ways by which you can start travelling to Italy – either by road, sea or even by air. You will find plenty of high quality transport facilities to get to this beautiful country. You need to ensure that you have seasonal clothing while travelling to Italy. It’s because there are many churches which have a very strict dress code so you need to ensure you do not violate any of those. Try and carry with you a money belt which is concealed from view. It’s because while travelling to Italy you might find plenty of pickpockets along the way. Also try to use the public telephone facilities because the hotels in the country will charge you a very high rate to make international calls.

Get a travel guide

While travelling to Italy you need to have a handy travel guide at your disposal. This will help you get a better idea about the place, the tourist attractions to see etc. There are predominantly two kinds of travel guides – one which lists out the tourist spots in the country and the other which provide in-depth information about a particular region. While you will surely find plenty of travel guides provided by hotel owners, travel agents etc. it is always better to refer to the official web site of the Italian tourism board. This will provide you with authentic information you can trust. After all, you don’t want to lose your way while travelling to Italy. Also many travel guides promoted by hotels will tend to be partial to their own chain of hotels. So be cautious of these guides while travelling to Italy.
