Things to Keep in Mind When Travelling to Italy

Italy is a dream location for anyone. Decked with splendid art and architecture, rich delicacies, fab wines and more tradition and culture than one can handle in a week or two. It is a place that should be visited by everyone once in a lifetime. Just like any other nation, Italy has its own rich custom and so if you are a first time visitor, then here are some of the tips that can make your journey to this beautiful place enjoyable and incredible. 

One week is enough for Italy- but surely two is better

Whether you stay in Italy for a week or 15 days, you need to purchase an airline ticket to reach. If you can spend for your ticket for a week, then why not invest for another week there. Seeing it from a financial point of view, it makes sense that you at least make mot out of your ticket expense.

There is a difference in what you see in a week and in 15 days. If you book private Italy tours for a week, you will see the Big Three (Venice, Florence and Rome) and not much. But with a grand tour of private Italy tours of 15 days, you will not just see Big Three but also a lot more. Right from north to south, you will get to see the variations of this nation.

North Italy and South Italy are different from one another

Previously, Italy wasn’t a nation but a collection of small autonomous nations. Today, you have Northern Italy and Southern Italy. Northern Italy has Alps, Dolomites, and has food resemblance from its neighbours, France and Switzerland. The life speed is also different. It is more industrialized and developed in comparison to the south.
