How far in advance should I book my plane ticket?

Airline tickets should ideally be purchased 6-8 weeks before travel or during low season.

Where should I get Euros?

When traveling to Italy try using your credit card when possible. You will get a far better exchange rate (roughly 9%) paying by credit card than using an ATM to get cash. However, if you need to get cash you will get the best rates and pay the lowest fees at a bank. Make sure to call your credit card company prior to your trip to let them know you are heading out of the country and plan on using your credit card.

What should I pack on my trip to Italy?

Depending on the length of your trip influences how much you need to pack, but here is a guide.

When is the best time to travel?

When deciding to book a trip, consider the seasons, weather, crowds, and prices. We recommend going in the low season, you will not only save money but also avoid crowds. Travel season is divided between high season, shoulder season, and low season. Shoulder season is not too crowded or too empty, generally pleasant weather and most places are open.

*Please keep in mind August temperatures are extremely hot and many local business are on holiday.
