About Taxis and stuff, it's not because the Taxi system is complicated, it's because it is not developed AT ALL. In italy it's much more common to take buses. So if you Wanna travel around you buy a ticket in a newsstand/cafe (they usually sell them) and take the bus (if you find the right bus driver you can also buy a ticket from him, but be careful because of they catch you with no ticket you Will have to pay like 50€). Trust me, I Know it because i'm italian :)

It's also great to rent a car in Italy! We've done it, and we're going to do it again this month. You have your freedom, roads are great, it's not even that expensive at all. And no stressing about train schedules and carrying your luggage everywhere

In early May '17 we're going to Rome, Florence and the Amalfi Coast. Is that considered spring? Will a down jacket be necessary??
Creativity Unleashed
I've been wanting to go there for years (at least 5) and In 3,5 months I'm flying *jumps from excitement*. First I'll be in Rome, because I want to go to Rainbow Magicland. Then I'm going to go to Sardegna and stay there for half a week, after that Sicilia for a week (because every boat that fits my plans only leaves on friday) and then the last days will be in Napoli from where I want to visit Pompeii. Still planning what exactly I want to do, but the entire trip, meaning travel and hotels, is planned since the beginning of december. I am so enormously exited! =D\n\nAnche, io imparo italiano e posso parlare la lingua passabile. Credo che non sarà una problema.
Dave Fiore
Thank you for your intelligent video. Italy in fact has the higher variety of food and DOCG products. Only the cheese is available in 400 different tipologies. The \

Ciao!! My 18yr old daughter will be studying in Florence for 5 weeks Jun-July '18 w 3 class mates from the states. As intelligent as she may be, Im extremely worried about their worldly skills lol with that being said could you give me any advice (on anything you feel might be important) as well as what THEY feel is important......bar, clubs, weekend trips to fun cities, hostels & traveling to other European cities like Paris or Barcelona. I know this is A LOT to ask but i really appreciate your informative, honest videos & feel they are spot on. Regards, Marie in Jersey

Hey I am going on junior journey to Italy and haven't gotten all of my questions answered from the info meetings i've attended and watching your video has lol I was curious for the money, I have only had talks about there being so many people wanting to steal money and backpacks and so on, that it's made me really anxious I will be staying in Florence :) and traveling to Rome as well. How should I carry my money? I am still unsure of how to 'hide' it or when not to bring my backpack, or how NOT to look too much like a tourist target as my school calls it
Fernanda Sullivan
Hi... I am going to Venice and Florence beginning of September, for just one week. \nI am a little bit overwhelme...not sure if we should visit any vineyard or or just stay in the city. \nAlso what to wear 🤔 .

I enjoyed watching your video. My family and I recently got back from a 3 week vacation in Europe where we spent time in Rome exploring the sites. It was amazing. We can't wait to go back!
Italy research for college class presentaions
Off to Europe next week. Will just be hitting up Florence and Rome for my first eurotrip. Will no doubt be keen to go back and explore Italy in more detail in the future.\n\nLearning basics of each country is something I like to do. Locals always appreciate it and you can even make friends ;)\n\nFor my trip I am learning basic French, Italian, German, Czech and Ukrainian. Seemed a bit overwhelming at first but I understand subtleties of each language now.

Ciao! Thanks for your tips. I'm planning a trip to Sulmona in Abruzzo, for the whole month of July this 2017... for an immersion course. I'm hoping to organize a small trip to Naples, Basilicata and Rome. Would you have any suggestions? Anyone? Grazie mille!
Julia Pellicane
Very good advice.. I suggest that if you want to see beautiful islands an beaches to take a trip to Sicily or Sardinia, and Bari, in the Apulia (Puglia) region has beautiful beaches, full of rock in contrast to sand. Overall our country is so beautiful and everyone should be able to enjoy it

Loretta Stephens
Hi, I love your video! Do you have any tips on traveling from Rome to Venice by train or Rome to Florence? Like, the best way to buy your tickets and the best train to take.\nItaly's always been a fantasy trip for me but I'm wondering what is the best time of the year to visit (i.e: less tourist etc). As my birthday is in March I'm wondering if that's a good time? \nAlso, I know that everything is closed on Mondays but does that include the train stations (i think this might be a stupid question...)

Thank you so much for the video, very Informational. I am definitely interested in visiting Florence. Do they have a Dante museum/memorial/ monument? I am going there next summer 2019.

Qurita Wilson
I'm going to Florence in two weeks!
I am planning to visit Rome, Parma, Manorola and Milan in May. Heard that Rome has a lot of petite crime. What about other cities?
I never go in museums or tourist attractions when I travel. it just seems like a waste of time when you could be outside, walking around and just soaking in the vibe of daily life!

Hi! I am going to Italy next June 2017 for my honeymoon. There are too much to see there, but we only have 2 weeks. Which are the best cities you would recommend to go ? We want to have a great time!!
We are trying to plan a trip to Italy for late May 2019. Any advice on how to even start looking? My husband has been overseas quite a bit but this will be my first time jumping the pond.
If you want a good place to eat, wander around and look for somewhere with lots of Italians in it.
Thank you for your video! I’m so excited I’m going to be staying about 30minutes away from Florence and I’m watching all the videos to get ready!!!
In three weeks I’ll be going to Rome, Naples, Monopoli, Bari, Termoli, Predappio, Venice, Verona, Cantu, Milan, Novara, Pisa, and Florence.. Florence will be my last stop! Oh and will also drive up to Lugano, Switzerland while in Cantu 😁 .. thanks for sharing these tips!! What are some good restaurants where I can eat with the locals and get some good authentic food and wine from the region.. ? in Florence

I'm going to Italy because I met an Italian girl in New Zealand and I love her.

I inhale my food in 3 minutes. Would annoy me to sit for hours. But i still want to visit
do i need to keep my passport all the time ??????
Vado in Italia a Roma, Toscana, Chianti e Cinque Terre. Your advice was excellent and I'm prepared, including enough Italian to meet people and make friends. Ritorno in Italia dopo di quarant'anni.
I'm a private and getting stationed there 🙂
I'm going to Italy with my husband this April! We are staying at Florence and from there we will take the train to Roma, Pisa and Milan. \nI would like to buy in the store in Florence! Can you recommend me a nice and not expensive place? \nThanks for your tips!
