Tips for Italy Travel

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

Located in Southern Europe, Italy is a peninsula extending into the
central Mediterranean Sea, northeast of Tunisia. When traveling to
Italy it is important to remember that you are not at home, so
always be respectful and conservative.

WEATHER AND CLOTHING

In general the weather is very hot and steaming in the dead of the
summer. We recommend that you wear light clothing. Be sure to
have sunglasses, hat and sunblock, as they are essential.
Afternoon thunderstorms (brief) are common in Rome and inland
cities, so you may want to consider bringing an umbrella. It is
essential to follow dress standards (no bare shoulders or knees)
and is strictly enforced in many churches, especially in Rome at St.
Peter's and the Vatican Museums and at the Basilica di San Marco
in Venice.

SAFETY

Remember to protect yourself against purse-snatchers and
pickpockets. It is recommended that you wear a money belt or a
pouch on a string around your neck, both concealed. When you
have to carry a purse make sure that is around your neck and
tucked between your body and arm. A word of caution: "gypsy"
children are widespread in Rome, are skilled pickpockets that are
quick, and know more tricks than you do.

TELEPHONES

Since hotel tend to overcharge for long distance and international
calls. It is best to make such calls from public phones, using
telephone cards. For general information in English dial 176. To
place international telephone calls via operator assisted service,
dial 170 or long distance access numbers. The country code for
Italy is 39.

If you are in need of additional information or have found what you
are looking for. We suggest that you complete an internet search
for additional information.
Have a safe and enjoyable trip to Italy!
