Traveling in Italy by car
What we do know for sure is that traveling to Italy by car 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.

Stay through CouchsurfingCouchsurfing is a hospitality network in which locals host travelers in their homes because they are interested in meeting them, and this has no cost.The most important thing to keep in mind when doing Couchsurfing, is to understand that the main objective of the network is not to get free accommodation, but to generate a cultural exchange, so if your idea is to use the host’s home only to sleep and leave your luggage while you spend the whole day alone touring, we recommend you to look for another type of accommodation. In tourist cities, it is essential that you contact your potential hosts in advance, as there are many travelers who use this network, remember to send a personalized message telling them why you would like to meet them, and not a copy-paste identical for all.Traveling cheaply in Italy: tips to save on transportation
