So I’ll save you the two-minutes it takes to shoot me a message and share those tips with you today.

This is important because although Italy is much smaller than many of the US states-it’s more than a hop, skip and jump from one city to the next. If you only have one week in Italy, it isn’t wise to expect to visit Venice, Florence, Naples and Sicily. You’ll spend all of your vacation time on the road.
2. Choose a region/area
