Planning a trip to Italy?
A little while back, we made a fun series of travel videos offering Top Travel Tips for Italy Trips.
Now, we are here to share some new tips for travelling in Italy, gathered from our expert tour guides and other locals.
And the first tip on the list for having a great time on your next travel to Italy is…
By which we mean, allocate a few hours or a full day to just wander around each Italian town and city you visit. Get totally lost and totally enjoy it!
Don’t worry if you have no idea where you are. It is in this way that you can stumble across the most charming streets, discover tiny artisan stores, visit locals markets and other gems off the beaten path.
You can pop into a local coffee shop or stop someone on the street if you need to ask for directions. Do be sure to carry a map with you though. And remember, you can always call a taxi* to take you back to your accommodation at the end of the day.
* Bonus tip: Taxis don’t always stop when being flagged down on the street. You may have to go to an allocated taxi stand or call a taxi. Ask at your accommodation for the local number.
