Key Contact Details and Important Information
Italy is No 2 in the World Health Organisation’s ranking of health systems in the world (the UK is down at No 18) so while we hope you won’t need medical care, you can rest assured you’ll get great care if you do. Don’t forget to order or take your free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) when travelling in Europe, just in case you need to seek medical treatment during your trip. If you do use the card during your holiday, we’ll waive the policy excess on any medical claim you need to make.
Best Time to Visit
Like the majority of European countries, the most popular time to visit Italy for great weather is between June and August, but the sea stays warm between June and September. However, if you’re planning to sightsee then you’ll find shorter queues, blue skies and cooler weather in Spring or Autumn.
What to See and Do
Where to begin? Florence, Venice, Naples, Milan are all stunning destinations within Italy and definitely worth a visit. However, Rome is usually the destination which makes everyone’s bucket list. Visit the smallest country in the world – The Vatican City, explore the Coliseum, throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, step back in time at the Spanish Steps, and watch the world go by at the Pantheon.
What to Eat and Drink
Italy is renowned for its amazing cuisine, so make sure you sample some authentic lasagne, spaghetti and pizza – to name but a few dishes. The wine is also spectacular.
