Book tickets at least 3 months in advance

If you want to snag the best deals on airfare, you need to plan ahead. Tickets for flights during busy travel periods (like summer and Christmas) can sell out quickly, so it’s important to book as early as possible.

Check if your passport is up to date

All travelers need a passport to enter Italy. Make sure yours is up-to-date before you book your trip.

Airbnb is your best friend

Airbnb is a great way to find affordable accommodation in Italy. There are many listings for apartments and homes all over the country

Choose destinations that aren’t as touristy

If you are staying longer than a week, please choose destinations that are not as crowded with tourists. This will give you a more authentic experience of Italy and its culture.

Expect most businesses to be closed after 12-2:00 PM in the afternoon

Most people at work get to go home and eat, so a lot of businesses are closed up until 3 or 4pm (excluding restaurants).
