Italy is one of the most enticing, irresistibly charming, mesmerizing countries in the world with its spectacular scenery, gourmet food, sublime architecture, and transcendent art collection. Italy is the fourth most populous EU member state and it is one of the founding members of European Union.
Italy has 54 world heritage sites, more than any other country, and is the fifth-most visited country in the world. Be sure to schedule some extra time around your conference to explore this spectacular country. If you are planning on a short trip then try to incorporate Venice, Rome, and Florence for sure. However, if you are planning on a longer trip then do consider places such as Milan, Naples, Sicily, Sardinia, Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Orvieto, and Amalfi Coast.
The weather in Italy can be described as a temperate, seasonal, Mediterranean climate. If you are looking to travel around offseason then consider April to June or September and October; the winter season is an also offseason for tourists. Summer is the peak tourist season when temperatures and prices will be higher. The best time to visit is considered during April and May due to pleasant weather. You even might be able to enter some of the galleries, museums, parks, and gardens for free on Sundays.
We recommend traveling in Italy via train. This will be inexpensive and stops at all major routes. You can also opt to rent a car through Priceline. You can get a better deal if you book a car at the same time as your flight tickets. You can expect the gas prices to be higher in Italy, and make sure you have insurance and incorporate toll road fees. An alternative mode of transportation is by bus, Funivia (suspended cable car), and Uber which are convenient too.
Italy is renowned for its cuisine; one is bound to have a gastronomic cultural experience. For an authentic pizza, you might want to travel to Naples, and there is no such thing as bad coffee in Italy! Also, some things to keep in mind when ordering food in Italy- avoid ketchup on pizza or pasta, drink water with your food in order to savor the food, drink coffee at the counter to avoid overcharges, and your sweet tooth will be very delighted with the breakfast options.
