DRIVING LICENCE

International driving licences are recognised throughout Italy.
First and foremost, decide if you really need a car. If you plan to visit the major cities then chances are that you would be better off using a combination of public transport and taxis. Train stations are located in the center of most towns (Rome, Florence, Venice, Naple), from where it is convenient to reach hotels and get public transport or taxis.
Parking is a problem, especially in the major cities. It is a good idea to leave your car in a supervised car park, especially if you have luggage.

Italy is the place where antiquity perfectly merges with the modern. Italy is divided into many regions and each one of them have an unique cuisines to boast about.

The Restaurants in Italy therefore go on to serve all the specialties of different regions. The notion that Italy Restaurants or food in Italy essentially means Pizza, Pasta. Macaroni, Spaghetti or Meat ball is completely wrong, there is so much more to satisfy your appetite.
