About Italy

Italy is celebrated as one of the world’s most beautiful countries, brimming with gorgeous cities, scenic countryside, dramatic mountain ranges and stunning coastline. Places such as Rome, Florence, Venice and Naples offer a unique mix of Roman and Renaissance history, and are inhabited by people proud of their culture and heritage. If you want to explore the countryside, Tuscany is a fabulous place to start, but you shouldn’t miss the Italian Alps, nor the volcanic landscape of Sicily. The neighboring island of Sardinia is also home to some of Europe’s most pristine beaches. And how can one talk of Italy without mentioning its cuisine? Whilst Italy is famous for its pizzas, pastas and ice cream, tourists don’t always appreciate that every Italian town and village has a speciality dish made with seasonal ingredients from the area and you just need to visit a local restaurant to try it.

Accessible travel Italy

Italy can present a challenge for disabled travelers, but this can be overcome with research and planning. Things to be aware of include cobbled streets, hilly cities and historic buildings with stairs. Venice has many humpback bridges across the canals, only a handful of which have ramps. The Cinque Terre and parts of Tuscany have narrow, uneven pathways and winding cobbled streets, so travelers with reduced mobility may not get the most out of their trip in these destinations.

However, many public transportation systems, including much of the national rail network and the vaporetto boats in Venice, have been adapted for accessibility. Assistance can be provided, especially if requested in advance. Many attractions can be accessed free of charge or at a reduced rate by people with disabilities. Travelers who book official tours of landmarks will receive assistance from guides.

Country Information

Health

No vaccinations are required to enter Italy, but as with all international travel, it is recommended to be up-to-date on your vaccinations, including tetanus. Be sure to get appropriate health insurance to fit your personal and travel needs, and have funds available to cover any medical emergency.

Travelers to mountainous areas should take reasonable precautions and make sure that they are prepared for all weather conditions.

Security

Italy is generally a safe country to visit. Pickpocketing and muggings can occur, so it is recommended to be cautious and avoid flashing valuables.

If traveling by car, never leave valuables on display and always lock your car when it is parked. Beware of people trying to distract you when traveling with luggage, such as in train stations or when loading your vehicle as this can be an attempt to distract you to steal your suitcases or money.
