Books on Italy Travel

How To Begin Planning Your Italian Vacation

We usually recommend starting with the “Big 3:” Rome, Florence, and Venice. This itinerary is perfect for first-timers and allows you to see the main marvels of the Bel Paese, from the ancient majesty of the Eternal City to the Renaissance splendor of Florence and the incomparable atmosphere of Venice. It also works well for experienced Italian travelers who have already seen the main attractions and might enjoy delving further into the hidden corners in any one of these cities. If you are going in the spring/summer and have an extended vacation time, we also recommend exploring the splendid Amalfi coast or taking a beach vacation in Southern Italy.

2. What sights do I need to book in advance?

We recommend advanced reservations for the most famous and popular museums in Italy. In Rome we recommend to secure your entrance tickets to the Vatican Museums, Colosseum and Borghese Gallery (where reservations are mandatory). ckets to obtain in Italy are those for The Last Supper – book as far in advance as possible! The Select Italy website allows you to secure reservations and pre-paid skip-the-line tickets for all of these museums.

3. What benefits will a traveler see when booking through an agent?

Booking with a travel agent offers you expertise, facilitating optimal output: there are so many sites to see, and travel agents can help with choosing the ones that will give you an authentic experience without falling into tourist traps. In addition, travel agents, particularly specialized ones like Select Italy, have agreements with the best suppliers and can offer local support when you are overseas. In short, you save both time and money as well as enhance your travel experience!

4. How far in advance should we book?

The sooner you make your decision, the better. Last minute bookings are possible but last-minute rush fees may apply and you may have to struggle with availability. In general, the best prices are found early, with fares going up as your departure dates approach.

Would look great in the basket too.Sorry for answering twice,but I was once a floral designer and gift baskets were often created for clients. Also some great picture books on Italy showing history and such would be a nice display too.Fake grapes with vine would also look great around the handle. Okay, I'll stop now.

India's beautiful architecture as symbols of love shows it has a heart of gold  — Express.co.uk
The train was just one leg on an enthralling trip touring the Golden Triangle, India's most popular northern cities of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. I confess I have had a long, bordering on obsessive attraction to the Rajasthan region.
