Italy is pretty much all connected by train, you’ll have problems on the eastern side, as the rail system hasn’t been updated, and further south of Salerno, but you’ll find your way around pretty easy.

Italy can be expensive in the cities, but living costs plummet once you visit the outskirts, but in relation to other main European countries it isn’t that expensive.

Well, that is a good question, defo start off by looking at what you really want to see. Do you want to go on a mad full Italian road trip, do you want to visit a particular region in-depth, do you just want to see the main cities, or do you want to just visit one city and the outskirts? Once you decided, a good website to use is Rome2Rio, I use it all the time when I’m traveling in other countries. It calculates the costs and shows you the various means of transport that can get you where you want. After that, you know where you’re going come give us a visit on studentsville.it and find an apartment to stay in.

The best time to visit Italy I believe is right before the summer and right after, cause the country gets pretty hot. As you can tell it’s July and I’m in Milan now and I’m boiling hot, it’s maddening. So defo September in Italy is a great time, but also the beginning of October is beautiful.

What should you bring to Italy?

mmmmmm it depends, Italy is a country that has very harsh seasons, the winters are COLD and the summers are HOT. So make sure you think about both situations before you pack.

What can you see in Italy in 7 days?

7 days is pretty tight, I personally think you should have a base city from which you go on day trips. Let’s say you stay in Florence, go to the beach one day, visit the 5 Terre for another day, visit the Chianti region, and another day to visit Siena, and have 3 days to walk around Florence. At least you won’t stress out too much, and you’ll get to live the culture as well as just sightseeing it ( interested in best places to visit in southern Italy?)

Which is better Amalfi Coast or Cinque Terre?

Personally, I think the Amalfi Coast, but it’s a really close call. I mean my family is from the south so that’s the main reason I probably like it more. I say you should visit them both, and let us know what your opinion is on the matter ( discover Cinque Terre day trip from Florence).

How many days should I vacation in Italy?

I’m gonna flip this last question and ask you how many days can you vacation for? Cause Italy isn’t a huge country, but it has a lot of things to see and experience.
