If you want to have the most memorable vacation ever, then explore interesting tourist destinations rather than visiting the same old places time and again. Visiting Italy, especially in summer will be a great idea! This beautiful country, which is the birthplace of pastas and pizzas, has an entirely different culture, and a very admirable way of life. Before touring a foreign land, it’s better to know at least a few things about the culture, don’t you think? Take a look at these simple Italy travel tips before you start packing your bags!

The first tip of course would be about the best time to visit Italy. Even though Italy is a place which exudes a fantastic sense of comfort throughout the year, the scenic views and the pleasant weather can be best experienced during spring and summer. In spite of everything, a comforting weather is what we look forward for a refreshing family vacation.

English is not very widely spoken by the locals. So, learn a few common phrases in the native tongue. You’ll find it very useful especially when you want to thank somebody, or clearing your doubts regarding routes! For instance, ‘Grazie’ means ‘Thank You’ in Italian, and ‘Potete dirmi dove è il ristorante più vicino’ means ‘Can you please tell me where the nearest restaurant is’.

You cannot afford to miss out some fantastic Italy tourist attractions like the Colosseum in Rome, the Canalazzo in Venice, the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples, the leaning tower of Pisa in Tuscany, and so on. You kids will also enjoy these historic places with great enthusiasm. As flash photography is restricted in some of the museums and art galleries, check the ticket counter for local rules. Try to discover this beautiful land by foot. Take coaches and trains for long distances, but give a lot of work to your feet; it’s really worth it!

Finally, something about the food! Forget your bacon and eggs for breakfast. Have Italian food recipes like croissants or Cranberry Orange Polenta Cake along with an espresso to wash it down your throat. Experience the authentic taste of Italian pastas and pizzas for lunch and an elaborate, spicy Italian dinner. Forget all your quick bites and spend time on your plates!
