Italy travel tip - Try not to cram for your Italian vacation

Many of you probably are used to cramming for an exam, perhaps you did so in college or high-school to get that last minute studying in before the exam.

Many people go to Italy and try to do the same thing. They'll try to do Milan, Venice, Rome, Florence, Naples, etc. in a 7-day stretch. Did you know that in each of these cities, particularly Rome and Florence, that there is so much to do and see, you can easily spend a month and not see it all. These are cities that have thousands of years of history, it is impossible to see it all in a few hours.

I think you can have a much more enjoyable vacation if you just focus on one place, and try to do little day trips from your hub. For example, nice day trips from Florence can include Fiesole, Siena, Pisa and Lucca.

It's good to savor your Italian vacation - enjoy the gelato, the evening strolls (passeggiate), do some shopping, go to a local grocery store and buy a picnic lunch, etc.

It'll save you aggravation of traveling to another location, and it'll save you the expense of driving, gasoline, train tickets, etc. as well!

Buon viaggio!

Hi Belgium! Thanks for commenting, yes you are correct. The Americans totally miss out on Belgium. The problem is we do not have that much vacation time compared to Europeans. Have a great day!
