Italy's Biggest Attractions and Most Visited Cities “In Italy, they add work and life on to food and wine”. Handcrafted Customised Tour Arriving in Milan than Come to Florence and the tour ends in Rome or visa versa with daily departure. When planning a trip to Italy looking at a map of Italy's best attractions and cities is a great way to gain perspective on your travel itinerary.
That way, you can make informed decisions about where you want to visit, how long you will need to explore each location, what time of year you want to travel, how you can get around from place to place most effectively, and most importantly what you want out of your trip.
The language spoken in Italy is Italian, but there are some local dialects that can be hard to understand for the casual Italian student. However, English is widely spoken in heavily touristed areas, so you should be able to find your way around without any problems.
Italy has a moderate climate and is nice to travel around. In the south, rain is infrequent in the summer. In alpine regions, quick thunderstorms are frequent, even in summer. At or near sea level the average low temperature seldom dips below freezing.
Summer can be hot in August, so Italians head to the beach and stay there. A better time to explore Italy is in the autumn months, It can be cool at night and there is more rain than during the summer months, but the temperatures and treats are worth the wetness.
In the summer, Italians eat lunch at around 1 in the afternoon and dinner around 8 in the evening. Lunch (pranzo) is often the main meal, and most stores close at 1 for a long period when many shopkeepers and shoppers alike flood to local restaurants. As a result, you should try to get to restaurants before 1 p.m. to avoid the rush.
A small trattoria may not have a wine list, but will always have a house wine (vino della casa). Water is safe to drink, but Italians prefer mineral water (acqua minerale) which is generally cheap
It is customary to leave small change for a tip, or up to five per cent of the total bill if the service is good (some say 10 per cent in a fancy ristorante where the service is impeccable). When ordering a coffee at a bar it is customary to leave a small coin for the person who makes and serves your coffee.
While you're there enjoying the food, don't forget to stay in some of the fantastic accommodations that Italy has to offer; there are usually abundant hotels near train stations really great hidden gems.
The hotels in Italy are rated by a government system that does not take into account the "charm" of a place.
When you're ready to travel, hop on Italy's extensive rail system or take one of the buses, which sometimes duplicate the rail routes. Many small cities in Italy have access to the larger cities close by through a twice-a-day bus trip, and bus stations are often found near the train station.
Trains and buses are subsidized, making Italian transportation slightly cheaper than most of the rest of Europe.
If you have several long legs planned for your Italian itinerary Italy Rail Pass can indeed save you money. Remember you need to take longer trips to make a pass worthwhile trains run frequently and comfortably and fast, and the journeys are very scenic.
Eurostar Italia is the fast train in Italy, which is the best means of public transportation between some of Italy's most visited destinations. Here are some typical travel times in order to give an idea
- Milan to Reggio Di Calabria: 11 hours
- Milan to Venice: 2 hours, 45 minutes
- Rome to Turin: 6 hours, 11 minutes
- Rome to San Remo: 6 hours, 39 minutes

Almost everybody knows the 3 biggest cities in Italy Rome, Venice, and Florence but one of the biggest mistakes travellers make is to try to see these beautiful cities in 10 days. While you can certainly travel to each of them within a week or ten days, experience these diverse and interesting places at your own pace.
Also, be sure to make the most out of your destinations. While you're in Florence, for instance, you'll want to make your way to other destinations in the Tuscany region like one of its many unique vineyards.
Rome is a fascinating city with amazing history, culture and special shopping. In the summer Rome is hot and humid there are pickpockets to watch out for; people can be rude and they can be helpful in the same time. Rome's architecture is a jumble of modern, Baroque, Renaissance, and Roman
