Ways to travel in italy

Map of Italy

One option for getting around by train is the tourist railroads that run on narrow tracks and that, after serving for commercial transport, have been recovered for the tourism of natural areas.

Driving in Italy may seem chaotic, anarchic, …in short, crazy. And… it is, especially in the cities, where the jungles of Rome, Naples and Palermo can seem like Mexico, Bombay or Beijing. But despite all these alarms, the accident rate is not higher than in other European countries. As the saying goes, “Where you go, do as you please”. We simply have to be a little more attentive and understand how gestures, habits, or the indications of the Italians work. An example is the misuse of turn signals, whose use is almost testimonial.

Tips for traveling to italy

You can prepare your trip to Italy by yourself: you just need to follow the steps we indicate in this page, and everything will be easier. Our best advice is to make your reservations in advance.

There are many types of accommodations, you must decide depending on the type of tourism you are going to do: – For short stays in art cities (Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples,…) you should stay in the city in central accommodations. You will not lose time in moving around, since the stay is short.

Coach Tours: For those who prefer all-inclusive, we have a wide range of organized coach tours throughout the Italian peninsula. With daily or scheduled departures. To all destinations. With a variety of days of duration.

Train Tours: If what you want is a more independent tour, we recommend the tours we have by train. You will travel by train, the hotels we offer will be next to the stations, and you will only join the group for the visits or transfers to and from the airport.

Things allowed in italy

What we do have clear is that traveling to Italy on your own is a before and after in the travel experiences of any foreigner who chooses this corner of the world. We do not know a single person who has not loved it. We came back completely in love with its people, its food and its cities. Shall we start?

We recommend the car option, only if you are going to make a route through nearby countries such as Croatia or France. Keep in mind that parking in cities like Milan, Florence or Venice can cost you a lot of money, since the downtown area is restricted to vehicles or is payable.

The big question you will ask yourself when organizing a trip to Italy. As always, it will depend on the days you have available and what you want to see, but we believe that 7/8 days is the minimum you need to enjoy this Mediterranean country.

To travel around Italy we recommend using the train, it is the best option. The stations are located in the center of the cities, besides being a comfortable and inexpensive transport. Calculate that a trip between Milan and Venice has a price of about 20 euros in modern high-speed trains. Check prices and availability on the Trenitalia website.

How to travel through Italy from north to south

This is a post with tips for traveling to Italy. In my trips to Italy (it is a country that I traveled several times) I have been able to visit several areas: from the inevitable Rome or Venice, much of Tuscany, part of the Italian Riviera or more remote places like the Aeolian Islands.

Italy is a relatively easy country to organize in tours because of its elongated shape, so it is a matter of choosing a region (north, center or south) and simply diagramming coastal or circular itineraries through points of interest. But the truth is that wanting to cover the whole country in a single trip can be a little less than exhausting. And this will leave us with the feeling of overlooking everything to follow an accelerated pace. Among my tips for traveling to Italy I confirm this: it is better to concentrate on a region or do not pretend to see everything the first time.

Tip >> Booking at least one month in advance will be a way to ensure better prices and availability and we will only need to have our driving license in order (it is always advisable to have an international license as well). Driving in Italy is great because it allows you the freedom to stop or detour in all the places that appeal to you, and believe me there will be plenty of tempting and unexpected places to stop.
