Money Saving Tips

Travel During the Shoulder Season Consider visiting during the shoulder season (spring and fall) when the weather is still pleasant, but prices for accommodation and attractions are lower compared to the peak summer season.
Book Accommodation in Advance Look for deals and book your accommodations well in advance, especially if you plan to stay in popular tourist cities like Rome, Venice, or Florence. This can help you secure lower prices.
Public Transportation Use public transportation, like trains and buses, to get around. Italy has an extensive and efficient public transportation system that can be more cost-effective than renting a car or taking taxis.
Free Walking Tours Many cities offer free walking tours where you can explore key attractions with a local guide. These tours often operate on a tip-based system.
