Essential Information of Italy

Here is some basic travel information on Italy that every traveler should take a note of before planning a visit to this beautiful European country.

Culture of Italy

A saying goes, the language of Italy makes every speaker a poet. The cradle of Western Civilization, Italy is a cultural powerhouse. Monuments and ruins still testify to the glory of classical Greco-Roman, the Renaissance, and the Baroque eras. All 20 administrative regions in Italy such as Tuscany, Lombardy, Umbria, and Sicily have their own distinct cultures. Italy’s fashion industry – centered on the city of Milan – is famous for well-known designers like Armani, Gucci, Prada, and Versace.

The music genre of Opera, which emerged from Florence, is the soul of Italy. Music of popular opera music composers like Verdi, Rossini, and Puccini is played even today in some of the most prestigious opera houses around Europe. The Italian cinema is internationally known for major movie stars and film directors. Football and Grand Prix racing are popular sports in Italy.

Food of Italy

Food is music inside the body for Italians. An Italian meal without wine is like a day without sunshine. Spaghetti with tomato sauce, pasta, and pizza are as ubiquitous as vineyards in Tuscany. Italy is famous all across the world for its gastronomic delights. Regions in northern Italy are renowned for alpine cheese, risotto, polenta. Tuscany in Central Italy is popular for bean dishes, wine, and olive oil. Emilia-Romagna region is known for ragu. Hearty and vegetable-based food of southern Italy and seafood of Sicily or Sardinia also attracts foodies from all over Europe. Teetotalers can refill their cup of latte and cappuccino anytime they wish in Italy’s atmospheric cafés.  

Festivals of Italy

Italians need no excuse to start a revelry or celebrate events. Ranging from food and music to sports and traditions, festivals in Italy reflect the spirit of this lovely nation. The Battle of the Oranges in February is held in the northern Italian city of Ivrea. The Festa Della Sensa in Venice is held in the month of May to promote culture and crafts. Carnevale in Venice, Procession of Mysteries in Sicily, Scoppio del Carro in Florence, Taormina Opera Festival in Sicily, and Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia are other popular festivals in Italy.

Tips about Italy

Always wear clothes that wear knees and shoulders while visiting religious sites in Italy.

Avail Citycard for free entry to museums, restaurants, and public transport.

Don’t forget to validate your train tickets before boarding a train and avoid fine.

Most restaurants and establishments remain closed for a few hours in the afternoon.

It is better to hire a scooter/vespa than a taxi in Rome or Florence.

Learn a few essential phrases to get around comfortably in Italy.

    • Trip to Italy

      This was the first time I booked a trip through travel triangle (Travel mastezs) to Italy. Since this was a new travel company for me, I was a bit skeptical initially. Must say, Arpita and Amit Chandra from travel masterz made the entire process effortless for me. Starting with explaining what is best option for us in terms of best locations to cover, minimum duration required, hotel recommendations, sight seeing places, visa assistance (in terms of helping me put together all the necessary documents), keeping me up-to-date until the end of my travel. Checking constantly on whats app if everyone was going well. Arpita also helped with pre-poning a day tour as I wanted to accommodate another personal tour on the initial planned date which was not part of the itinerary which i could not have been able to visit, if not for Arpita changing the schedule in the last moment as per my request. Overall great experience in Italy. Many thanks to Arpita and team from travel triangle who are extremely professional and are well aware of the places without making false promises and being honest upfront in terms of what to expect.

      Really satisfied with the trip! All the hotels provided had pretty good location. Shubham Gupta from HUB Holidays was very active throughout all stages of the trip, right from planning the itinerary to the very end. We planned our entire itinerary during late hours and Guptaji was happily available to receive calls during those odd hours also. They entertained even the last minute changes. VISA assistance is also amazingly handled and we had no problem whatsoever. The sightseeing options provided were also good. Over all it is an excellent trip to Paris, Swiss and Italy. Only the Gondola ride at Venice was cancelled due to rain.

    • Trip to Europe

      Me and my wife planned 11 days trip to France and Italy during mid Feb'19. To say that our trip planner Siddhant and his team put together the experience of a lifetime for us, still somehow seems an understatement! When we started planning this trip, we spoke to about two to three different travel planners and while almost all of them were thorough and impressive in their own ways, Siddhant was the one who provided itinerary suggestions which were real time and exactly what we were looking for. Siddhant himself is quite familiar with various destinations across Europe and hence his expertise helped us in planning a wonderful trip. We started our trip from Paris. We stayed in Paris for three days and covered many known places like Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame etc. We also did cruise ride and even visited Indian street in Paris, named Gare du Nord, which had every Indian thing available. From Paris we travelled to Venice and stayed there for two days. Our stay was booked on the canal, which gave an edge to the whole trip. We visited beautiful islands in Venice like Murano, Burano and Torcello. We also enjoyed the scenic beauty of Venice by foot. Did Gandora ride, which was one of the lifetime experience. In Venice we did some shopping too and relished mouth watering handmade chocolates too. From there we travelled to Florence and stayed there for two days. Florence is a perfect place to be discovered on foot, it has very fine and breathtaking architecture. We also did a one day Tuscany tour where we covered Vienna, Siena, vine tasting etc. We were lucky enough to locate and dine in Indian Restaurants in Florence. From Florence we visited our last stop Rome. We stayed in Rome for 3 days and were able to see some lovely places like Colosseum, Vatican City, Fountain Triveni etc. Siddhant helped us in planning everything, right from perfect commute to choosing proper stay location so that we could easily travel to/from station by foot. He also helped us in figuring out stay duration at each place and also helped us in deciding right flight/train timings so we don’t end up wasting a day in just commuting. It’s so important to plan things right when you are travelling by yourself (no group). It turned out to be the most amazing and memorable trip of our lives. And we intend to book our future trips with Siddhant and his team. Thank you Team Duniya Safari :)

    • Trip to Europe

      "Travel with no regrets" is what i would like to say before planning on to any trip. So i had booked a 9 Nights and 10 Days customised package to Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice) and Austria (Vienna). Well where do i start from right from airport pick, the hotel bookings, Places recommended, City tours, train travel to different cities and drop-off at the airport everything was so smooth with Street Romeo Travel planner ; they also are always there to help you if you have any queries during the trip too without any issues. Also the really good part was the pickup and drop off at the airport cause we were provided with chauffeur driven Mercedes E class cars which is usually not common and majority of the travel agents don't provide & this had not cost us extra at all everything was well within the budget estimate provided to us. I came across Street Romeo Travel planner through Travel Triangle, and they were the one who had given me the best budget for the trip so with no questions asked we went ahead with them. Great Job Team Street Romeo Travel Planner. Keep it up!! Cheers.

      Our Italy trip of 10 days i.e 3-nights rome, 3-nights florence , 2-nights in venice, 2 nights in milan was good. The hotel location of Milan could have been better, although it was close to the main Milan train station the area wasn't good and safe as per the receptionist of the hotel, even we could feel the same when we used to go out. One day hop-on hop-off service should have been provided in Milan in the package. There's nothing much to explore in Milan, I would suggest instead of Milan a country side destination should have been added like the amalfi coast. If we get an early train like 9:00 Am from rome to florence than 2 nights are enough in florence as venice is so pretty we felt instead of 3 night in florence we should have got 3-nights in venice. The sim card which was provided had alot of internet connection issues. The experience was good overall and we enjoyed our trip.

      I Need Trip helped me plan the trip from end to end. On the day we were supposed to leave for Italy, Air India's system made an error and cancelled our tickets. The team at I Need Trip stepped up to the occasion and booked us on the next flight out! This is an extremely hard working and dedicated team. I know I can rest safe on my vacation when I Need Trip is behind the wheel. Shashank and Nidhi were available at all time for any assistance. Kudos to you guys and thank you for a very memorable trip!

      Holiday aces organized my tour perfectly. I have traveled with so many other travel agencies in the past and this time I choose holiday aces along with Travel Triangle. Both the teams work very efficiently. Aaryan from Holiday aces is a super guy his domain knowledge is second to none. I would like to highlight once we were stuck with some issue in the middle of the night and we called Aaryan he along with his team came to the rescue when they helped us at 2 AM India time which you don't expect however they delivered. Lastly, I would highly recommend Travel Triangle and HoliDay Aces to my friends and family as it is not the price you should have in mind while traveling it is when someone is looking after you and your travel like a FAMILY MEMBER. Please give some chocolates from my end to Aaryan.

      I went on a 9 days Italy trip with my wife and 1 yr old daughter. Trip was planned by Shashank from I need trip. From the very first call, the itinerary seemed interesting and value for money. He took care of each and every small need of ours and modified the package as and when needed. We spent 4 nights Milan ( including day tour to lake Como and Lugano and one day tour of Venice ) personally felt that one day tour of Venice from Milan is better than staying in Venice. the tours arranged were excellent. 2 days Florence and 2 days Rome. The location of hotels were extremely convenient.. in the heart of the city, close to metro stations and numerous food options around. We didn’t face any challenges. Following are the points for improvement: There were tours of lake como and Lugano which allowed baby strollers that would have made it easier for us in the day long excursion. So for families with infants try to book those tours. The last tour.. vetican and colosseum one day.. was kind of hectic as we had to move from vetican to colosseum on our own. There were tours which covered the transfer as well. Overall it was a fabulous experience.. full marks for hotels , trains and flights. Specially hotel Axial in Florence.. it’s is located right in the center of the city where all important tourist places are 2-3 mins walk Thanks to your team for making it a memorable trip for us! .

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The Eurail and bus services are the best bet for traveling to different cities within the country.

    Since Italy is a part of the European Union, the Schengen Visa will cover your visit to Italy.

    Spend at least 10 days in Italy if you want to explore it properly and fully.

    Apart from the usual Italian cuisine of pizzas and pastas, Gelato, a form of frozen dessert, is a must have when here.

    Italy is relatively safer, although caution should be exercised in the old city areas of Rome and Florence against pickpockets and purse snatchers.
