Culture in Italy
Each city offers a unique cultural experience. It’s no wonder so many of the world’s most beloved designers have used Italy’s vibrant architecture as their
geographical muses. Shop til’ you drop on the Golden Quadrilateral in the fashion capital of Milan, or visit the open market of San Lorenzo in Florence, one of the most concentrated art cities in the world, where Guccio Gucci found his success.
Millions visit Italy each year specifically to visit Rome’s magnificent Vatican City, which has a culture all of its own; a must-see for those who appreciate incredible feats of architecture and artistry.
Food and drink in Italy
However, there’s so much more to Italian food than pizza. A holiday to Italy offers a chance to sample line-caught seafood, rustic pasta dishes, delicious local cheeses, vibrant salads and an array of mouth-watering meats and roasts. Be sure to save a little room for dessert, however, as Italy is also home to gelato, an unmissable rich ice cream available in a variety of flavours and fillings.
Nightlife in Italy
Florence has a thriving EDM scene and Rome is great for wine bar hopping. If relaxing beach holidays are more your style, walk along the sand to Sicily’s Morgana Beach Bar, where you can sip cocktails watching the sunset.
Travel tips for Italy Holidays
The currency of Italy is the Euro, and several shops and merchants will accept card payments, however it’s always a good idea to exchange your currency before you arrive.
Many of Italy’s big city tourist attractions and museums also offer free entry at certain times of the week, so save money by planning ahead.
