Best Experiences In Italy for 2023

With summer well and truly over, we wouldn’t blame you if you’re already looking ahead at the trips you can embark on in 2023. Italy is one of the most popular countries to visit, boasting an equal amount of history and culture to be enjoyed by individuals of all ages either travelling solo or as a group. But its admirable landscapes and attractions isn’t just what attracts so many tourists per year. The country’s Mediterranean climate and cuisine are just two elements that make visiting so appealing, providing a home from home type experience. With that in mind, we’re taking a closer look at how to ensure you have the best experiences in Italy.

Consider Renting A Car

One of the most convenient ways to travel around Italy is by car, providing you the freedom to travel from one place to another without needing to rely on public transport. This is particularly true if you are wanting to explore away from the hustle and bustle of the city and its main attractions. Before hiring a car in Italy, or abroad in general for that matter, it’s always a good idea to brush up on the highway code and rules, helping you to travel with greater confidence. Understanding how to ask basic questions such as how to ask for directions can also be beneficial, helping to ensure you don’t stray too far from the main roads.

Eat Like A Local

Whether you have decided to undergo one of many highly popular private tours of Italy or are creating your own venue on an Italy hiking tours, be sure to embrace the opportunity to eat like a local. Italian food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world, offering a range of popular ancient recipes for visitors to enjoy such as the classic bolognese, lasagna or rabbit stew. To uncover the most authentic dishes, aim to visit eateries that are a little more hidden and off the main track. Whilst the restaurants in popular locations won’t disappoint, these smaller, family-run businesses will give you a true taste of Italy. 

Use A Tour Guide

Italy is a huge country with thousands of years of history behind it. To make the most of your time in the country, we recommend using a local tour guide. Local tour guides ultimately know all the Italian hot spots and best places for your Italy tour holidays, sometimes offering once-in-a-lifetime peeks at artefacts and places that may otherwise go unvisited. If you are looking to stay in Italy for longer than just a holiday, your Italian tour guide can put you in contact with other local individuals who may be able to offer their wisdom to ensure you have an unforgettable experience.  

Speak The Language 

Whilst you don’t necessarily need to be able to speak Italian to visit Italy, knowing a few important phrases here and there can help you get by. Before your trip, take a look at what might be useful to know such as how to ask for directions, how much something costs and where the closest restroom is. If you have the opportunity, also consider undertaking a few Italian lessons to make the most of Italian culture. 
So, there you have it! A few of our top tips to have the best experiences in Italy 2023. We hope you have a memorable Italian adventure!

Being our second trip to Italy we had already spent a great deal of time at the "tourist" locations. This time around we wanted to make it more adventurous. We planned a hike through an old Etruscan forest, where we were able to explore various tombs (AWESOME!). This hike allowed us to explore a "hidden" (at least from tourists) part of Italy.

The places we were taken to during the hikes were awesome. We never imagined that such places existed, and we would have never found them on our own. Linda and I still talk about the wonderful food we had while on the trip. Give our regards to your wonderful staff and thank them on our behalf.

We loved it! We felt immediately welcome; everyone got along. I felt the social structure of the event really enhanced the experience and to be able to absorb these wonderful sites. All that with the gorgeous meals really made a holiday to remember! We will certainly be considering one of your other tours in a couple of years.
