Quaint Italian Streets and Lesser-Known Local Peculiarities

Italy is a dream destination for many people. Although we currently live in uncertain times and, unfortunately, tourism is the last thing on our minds, we hope that very soon the situation will change for the better. Hence, you can actively research this enchanting country. Picture-perfect Italian streets are beautiful and cozy, though some local peculiarities may seem puzzling to outsiders.

When you are planning a trip to sunny Italy, be sure to consider the weather. It is best to visit it in spring or autumn. It is during these periods that the heat will not spoil your impression of the place. Besides, prices in stores will be lower, and there will be fewer people.

Of course, it all depends on the purpose of your trip. May or September are ideal for exploring the streets, visiting museums, and cozy cafes. However, if you are traveling to conquer the mountain peaks, it is better to do it in winter. For those who love lying on the beach, we recommend an August vacation in central and southern Italy.

Things to Remember When Visiting Italy

Safety first: do not carry around a lot of cash or use an ATM in crowded places.

When traveling, opt for a comfortable, sturdy backpack to avoid thieves, as they often ride scooters and snatch tourists’ personal belongings. A pricey smartphone or camera can also be a target for pickpockets.

If you explore by car, leave it only in dedicated parking lots. Always be careful crossing the street, because rather than stopping, cars often just slow down to avoid you.

When visiting the Vatican, cover your knees and shoulders. It is an important rule that everyone must follow.

There are bottles of water placed next to many a front door on Italian streets. Some tourists assume it’s for watering plants, when in fact, people use them to scare away cats. Italians believe that cats get frightened of their reflection in the water and run away.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
