Italy — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Tour Highlights

  • Marvel at the Colosseum and Roman Forum in Rome.
  • Head to Siena and watch the annual horse race.
  • Climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
  • Explore Venice on a gondola ride.
  • Dine a margherita pizza in Naples.

Travel Tips

  • For authentic Italian cuisine, look for a restaurant with a full Italian menu instead of those catering only to tourists.
  • Italians take great pride in their food, so do not make any special food requests.
  • Make sure you are full before 7 PM. Italian restaurants rarely open after that.
  • Keep your belongings safe as some Italian cities have a bad reputation for pickpocketing.
  • Cover your shoulders and knees when visiting churches and other holy sites.
  • The best tourist spots are less crowded in the mornings.

Activity-based Italy Tours

  • Italy culture tours: With Italy being so jam-packed with history, it is no wonder that there are so many Italy culture tours to choose from. Learn as you travel, taking in the culture of the towns and cities around you, all the while admiring the historical sites like the Doge’s Palace in Venice, the Forum in Rome, or Pompeii.
  • Italy hiking tours: Want to explore Italy on foot? With the Dolomites, Appian Way, and plenty of gorgeous coastal trails, our Italy hiking tours range in location, duration, and comfort level to give you the flexibility you need. Think of all the pasta you can eat at the end of each day.

  • Italy food tours: One of the main reasons many of us visit Italy is because of the food. On our Italy food tours, you may be sampling limoncello on the Amalfi Coast, tearing into a traditional pizza in Naples, or going on a gastronomic Balsamic journey in Modena. Bring your appetite and perhaps some baggier clothing.

Popular durations for an Italy trip

While you can explore certain cities, such as Milan or Venice, over a long weekend (4 days). To take in most of what the different cities have on offer, we recommend you spend at least 10 days in Italy. You can of course stay longer. With three weeks to spare, you will be able to afford a more leisurely jaunt around the countryside, rather than hopping from city to city.

Italy tours — Top destinations to visit

  • Dive into the culture in Tuscany: Greeted by the Tyrrhenian sea in the west coast, Tuscany is a land of cultural awakening. From superbly crafted fine wine in the vineyards to the incomparable Renaissance art of Florence, a trip to Tuscany will feel like paradise to a culture nut. The region presents one of the most authentic tastes of Italy and is one of the most fascinating and popular tourist destinations in the country.
  • Enjoy the beautiful coasts of Puglia: Highlighted by traditional countryside villages and a beautiful coastline, Puglia, the heel of Italy’s boot, is an amazing tourist destination. Whether you choose to take a dip in the swimming coves or the clear waters of the Adriatic, explore traditional trulli culture in old villages and cottages, or feast with the locals in the many bars in Piazzas, there is something for everyone in Puglia. Head to the olive groves where you can enjoy plenty of sunshine to cap off your vacation in Puglia.
  • Relax on the beach in Sicily: Coastlines and beaches make Sicily a nature lover’s dream. This popular island on the Mediterranean sea is home to some marvelous archeological sites and fine Italian cuisine. But that is not all, the ancient Roman amphitheater and the ruins of the temple of Athena also allow visitors a peek into the country’s history. Add the churches and cathedrals in Palermo, black-sand lava beaches in Aeolian islands and the majestic Mount Etna and you have a perfect Sicilian vacation.
  • Follow the hiking trails in Cinque Terre: A landscape covered in beautiful terraced hillsides, Cinque Terre is a popular walking destination. Here, you can enjoy gorgeous views of the colorful villages built on cliffsides while exploring the interconnected hiking trails in the region. A holiday in Cinque Terre can also give visitors a glimpse of the medieval era, as it is home to ancient seaside villages along the Italian Riviera.
  • Go skiing in the Dolomites: Home to the Italian Alps, the Dolomites is a hiking and skiing haven for adventure seekers. This is where you will get to familiarize yourself with the Ladin culture and discover a blend between Italian and German cultures. Stay in luxury resorts, visit open-air museums, and dine on delicious cuisine every night. These are some of the reasons why the Dolomites are popular not just in Italy but the whole of Europe.
  • Bask in the sun in Amalfi Coast: If you are seeking out sunshine, lemons, and time relaxing on the beach, you are going to want to visit the Amalfi Coast. Famed for its stunning coastlines with accompanying clifftop hiking trails, zingy limoncello, and archeological wonders, such as Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast has something for everyone. From Capri's classy elegance to Naples's winding side streets, to Sorrento's sandy beaches, no two days on the Amalfi Coast are ever the same. Popular with travelers of all ages and from all over the world, there are plenty of reasons why visitors come back here.

Tours in Italy - Questions and Answers

  • Do I need a visa to travel to Italy?

    Citizens of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Japan can visit Italy (along with the free-movement zone of Schengen in the EU) for 90 days as tourists without requiring a visa.

  • Is Italy expensive to visit? How do the ATMs work? What currency do they use?

    While it is true that Italy is not an expensive destination, it is not exactly a budget destination either. Your vacation funds will go much further in Italy than they would in Scandinavia or the UK, with daily budgets of around USD150 per person sufficient for mid-range travelers who do not want to miss out on any of the country’s most important sights. Most banks have ATM machines (called bancomat) with English language options. All you need to do is look for the US or the UK flag. Plus, most machines accept both Visa and Mastercard. Please keep in mind that you will withdraw your cash in euros, with EUR1 slightly more than its USD equivalent.

  • Do they speak English in Italy? Would be better to learn basic communication phrases?

    It was not too long ago that finding anyone who spoke English in Italy was an ordeal. This is not the case anymore. Most people in the cities have some understanding of the language, although numbers decrease as you move further into the countryside. Therefore, it is better to know a few basic phrases in Italian (per favore means please and grazi means thank you) if you are heading for the country. This will not only make your stay in the country easier but also ensure that you show respect to the people and their culture. 

  • What is the best month to visit Italy?

    The best time to visit Italy is between the months of April and June as well as from September to October. The weather on the Italian Peninsula during these months is ideal for going out on sightseeing tours, hiking, and exploring treasures stretching from Palermo to the lagoons of Venice. Traveling to Italy during July and August is avoided by many because of the summer heat and crowds, while the period between November to March sees the fewest visitors in big cities. However, these months coincide with the prime skiing season in the Alps, while southern parts of Italy, such as Sicily, remain relatively warm during this time of year. Find more information here.

  • How many days do you need in Italy?

    The duration of your vacation in Italy depends on the ground you want to cover. It is possible to enjoy a city break in Rome that lasts just three days, while one week in Italy will give you the chance to tick the country’s top sights off your bucket list, be it the countryside around Tuscany, the highlights of Florence and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. However, we recommend Italy trips of no less than ten days. This will allow you to take in the country’s iconic landmarks as well as explore off-the-beaten-track destinations, such as the medieval hamlet of Barbarano Romano,  the Dolomites, and Mantua in the Lombardy region.  In two weeks, you can add Sicily to your itinerary. Read our travel article on how many days to spend in Italy.
