Key Contact Details and Important Information

Coronavirus Advice

Current Status & FCDO Guidance 

Please check the FCDO for the most up to date information regarding travelling to Italy.


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.

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 and 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.
