Italy is one of the most visited countries in the world thanks to its world-famous sights, its drop dead gorgeous beaches and its legendary cuisine.

The downside of this ever-increasing popularity is that many Italian sights are way beyond their actual tourism capacity and have thereby completely lost their former sense of authenticity. The first problem is that lots of foreigners travel to the wrong Italian locations during the wrong periods. Another factor is that many tourists do not know enough about Italy and just visit the country for the sake of some social media pictures. To avoid these two scenarios, we are here to help you out, prego.

Based on multiple local sources and on over 30 trips to Italy, here are our 12 most essential and most crucial things to know before travelling to Italy.

1. Skip the tourist traps and go off the beaten path

Italy has some of the most beautiful cities on the planet and while their picturesque cobbled alleys are awash with good looking restaurants, be aware that every Italian city is full of tourist traps which should be avoided if you want to have the best experience.

In terms of restaurants, everything with a ‘tourist menu’ or with pictures on the menu should be discarded immediately. The food in these places is usually low quality and overpriced. As always, the best thing to do is to ask locals where to eat or to read our city guides.
