Our Italy Travel Guide

Who doesn't love Italy? The home of pizza, pasta, gelato, sunny weather and happy people. There are so many things to do in Italy - if you love history, a stroll in Rome visiting Colosseum or a day trip to ruins of Pompeii will make your heart beat faster. If you enjoy laying in the sun (on a boat, maybe?) with an Aperol in your hands, Amalfi coast will be the perfect place for you. One thing we know for sure - once you've visited Italy once, you will always want to come back.

Main Facts About Italy

In Italy, like in most European countries, the euro is used. You can also use the popular credit cards like Visa, Maestro, Amex and Master Card.
Italians speak Italian. In popular tourist destinations English is used as well, but the most of the locals either don't understand it or their ability to speak English is very limited.
Summer months are really hot in Italy. Starting from May, the temperature usually reaches 25-29 degrees, while in winter it is around 10-12 degrees celsius. It is very unlikely for it to rain in summer, but colder months see rain quite often.
Power Plugs
In Italy the power plugs and sockets are of type C, F and L (like most of Europe), therefore you won't be able to connect appliances bought in the UK or USA there. We suggest buying a travel adaptor and use our appliances anywhere in Italy
There currently are 60.3 million people living in Italy. It also is a super popular tourist destination for anyone in the world, therefore expect most places to be pretty crowded!
Fun Fact
Tourists throw €1,000,000 into the Trevi Fountain each year. All the money is donated to charity, though, so next time you are in Rome, make sure you make a wish and throw some coins into the fountain.
