There is food, art, architecture, shopping and the spectacular scenery. The task of planning a trip can sometimes get a little overwhelming. Let us give you some tips for planning a perfect trip to Italy.
Where to Visit
Every city in Italy is worth a visit. And to make the best of your trip, we would advise you to either plan a long 15 days or one month trip or select only one or two places to visit. The most famous places that you can visit while in Italy are Rome, Milan, Naples, Tuscany, and Florence. Decide what places you want to visit.
Deciding the time of the year to visit the country is very important because Italy is experienced differently in every weather. If you are a fan of winter sports like skiing, trekking, and snowboarding you should visit Italy during the winters. The Alps and the Alpine ranges have the most beautiful winters. There is snow everywhere and it gets freezing cold. When you move to the south of Italy to places like Milan and Rome, you will see mild weather that is perfect for visiting and exploring. During the summers, the weather is very hot; it gets hot in June and the heat increases until mid-August. This is the best time to visit the beaches. The summers in Italy are very crowded. There are many carnivals, parades, and sports that also take place during the summers. So you can decide what weather suits you the best.
Deciding the number of days you want to spend in this beautiful country. This also includes how many days you want to spend at one place. One-two days in Bologna, two days in Florence, two to three days in Tuscany etc. If you want to visit many cities of the country, it is important to add the time that you will take to travel between the cities in your itinerary.
Decide the amount of money you want to spend on the trip. Your budget is the main deciding factors for many things like accommodation, transport etc. Decide how much amount you want to spend on the vacation and always keep an extra sum of money with you in the case of emergencies.
Accommodation is one of the biggest issues that you can face during some seasons. In the summers, it is very difficult to find a decent hotel in a budget price range. The hotels are either completely occupied or are very expensive. So, it is very important to book the hotels in advance. Another advantage of already booking a hotel online is that you get discounts and even lower prices. You can also see the room that you are booking and decide accordingly.
Travel ticketing- Book your train or plane tickets as soon as the dates for your vacation gets finalized because it might be really difficult to get the reservations later. Also, if you are planning to travel to different cities, it’s better to book your tickets beforehand.
