Getting to Italy


Driving in Italy

Highways or Motorways are indicated by the letter "A" (for autosrada) followed by a number written in white on a green background.
They are almost all subject to tolls, except for some brief stretches, Tolls are paid in cash at exit points.
Service areas are very frequent along all of the autostradas.
Italy recognises driving licenses and other traffic documents that are valid in other countries.
Seat belts are compulsory in Italy.
Speed limits are fixed at 50 km (31 miles) per hour in urban areas, 90 km (56 miles) per hour on secondary and local roads, 110 km (68 miles) per hour on main roads outside urban areas and 130 km (80 miles) per hour on autostradas.

TAXIS
You are strongly advised to use only official taxis which are easily identifiable.
Extra charges: In addition to current standard fares, supplement for luggage (per item) and night time are requested (night service supplement between 10pm and 6am).

Trains
First and second class rail tickets, which have different rates, can be purchased at station ticket windows, through automated machines located in the stations
The Italian railway network, managed by Trenitalia http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html
Seat reservations are possible on every kind of train except REG Regionale and DIR Diretto.
Travellers must validate their tickets with the special stamping machines (usually yellow in colour) located along the station platforms.
The railway is connected to the two main islands, Sardinia and Sicily, by means of ferries departing from Civitavecchia (Rome) and Villa San Giovanni (Reggio Calabria).
The Italian railways net is well equipped to help people with disability.

Buses
Coach services run between cities and towns and there are also lots of local bus services. A major Italian company that operates throughout the country is called SITA http://www.sitabus.it/wps/portal

Maritime Services
Italy has many islands in the seas around the country. There are many services linking the islands by sea to the mainland: the main links are by car ferries and hydro-foils.

The best time to visit Italy

Italy can be lovely all the year around. August is best avoided if possible as this is the time that most Italians take their holidays, prices are very high, many shops and businesses are closed and it is usually very hot.
