Italy

After France and Spain, Italy has the most tourists of any country in Europe. The famously-shaped “boot” country only became one country in the mid-1800s, so it’s a true mix of different cultures, cuisines and even languages. From the Alps in the north to the Mediterranean island of Sicily, there is a lot to see in Italy. The cities of Rome, Venice, Florence, and Milan all have many interesting attractions to visit. 

QUICK ITALY FACTS

Currency: The currency used in Italy is the Eurp which can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Italy, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.

Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other European power points (2 circular prongs). Obviously I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Europeans.

Official Language: The official language of Italy is Italian.

Health: The only major health concerns in Italy for travellers is a recent break out of measles. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is generally safe to drink.
