The currency in Italy and most of Europe is the Euro. Italy is cheaper than other European countries, but the costs can add up in the main cities. Allow a budget of at least 70€ per day including accommodation.
The weather in Italy is hot and dry, the best time to visit is around summer (June-September), although major cities can be visited year-long.
As in any country, we advise travelers to get a travel insurance that covers not only medical problems but also theft and loss of personal items. Learn more on our travel insurance page
