Planning a cheap trip to Italy

Planning a cheap vacation to Italy, the land of fashion and style, is not child’s play. Freshly baked Italian pizzas, wines and vineyards, Gucci shoes, The Vatican, and yes, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, can be tough targets if you’re not on a big budget. Italy is an amazing country that has a lot to see: Rome, Venice, Milan, and Florence to begin with.

On the other hand, regions like Tuscany and Sicily are worth a visit. In order to start your planning, make a list of the top destinations in Italy, whether famous or not. The Internet will be your great ally if you want to save a lot of money. There are small, very unknown Italian towns that are a true wonder. The second thing to check is the high and low season of each destination.

From November to February, the rates are lower as Italy receives a much smaller number of tourists. But within those months, be careful with Dociembre, since it is the Christmas season par excellence and the hotels and transports raise their rates again. Of course, do not forget that when going out of season you may have to face not too pleasant weather conditions.

Don’t limit yourself to McDonald’s burgers, just because they’re a cheap option. You will surely discover small restaurants that will offer you pieces of pizza at a very reasonable price. If you don’t want to miss out on an interesting shopping day, even if your budget is low, remember that there are plenty of Outles that will allow you to save a fortune. Look especially for the Outles of Milan.
