What To Expect

Italy is one of my all-time favorite places to travel. From homemade pesto on a cliffside village in Cinque Terre, to Napoleon pizza in Naples, to Chianti tasting in Tuscany, Italy truly has it all.

Language: The official language of Italy is Italian. In popular tourist cities, restaurant staff and tour guides will speak English. Outside of high tourist areas though, there is often little to no Italian spoken so be ready with a few useful phrases!

Currency: The Euro is used as currency (€).

Best Time to Visit : There really is no bad time to visit Italy. Spring and fall offer cooler weather with less tourists to maneuver through while summer, especially in places like Amalfi coast, can’t be beat. Winter in Italy is mild and offers beautiful festivals and markets around Christmas and New Years.
