Italian travel Planning, Explore The Possibilities

My insight for vacation planning is to make it fun and don't get stressed out over anything and most of all take your time. No one graduated from high school or college in two weeks so why think you could plan a great vacation in a couple days or learn how to in an hour, so take your time and learn everything you can, it will be worth it when you get where you are going.

To make it fun I think you should explore and get excited about the possibilities of all the things you can see and do as you plan your trip to Italy. I know planning an overseas trip can make some feel a little apprehensive and that is why after reading the information here you will feel as confident about Italian travel or travel in Europe as you would be traveling in your own country.

To make this site easy to navigate you can find what you need under the Learn and Finish banners as well as the main menu bar depending on how you prefer to search for information. Hovering over the Learn banner presents you with subjects to learn in the order I believe is best when planning a trip to Italy. When you are ready to book your vacation I have links to many major booking companies.

Italian Travel Planning The Learning Process

The Plan Trip page has seven articles covering the how to aspects of planning and arranging your trip and includes the articles below. The articles can be accessed from this page, the main menu as well as the plan trip page.

Using Google maps to plan your sightseeing and where to stay.

Hotels, This page provides the information needed to pick the location and the hotel that will be right for you.

Our Flights page has information on choosing a flight whether it be flying into and out of the same airport or multiple airports.

The Cars page deals with the pros and cons of driving in Italy and how to decide whether or not to rent a car.

The Train page provides information on whether buying a travel pass is best for you or if buying individual tickets from each departure city is better based on where you are going.

The Cruise page tells how to plan your cruise based on what you want to see, whether the cruise will be only part of your vacation or the entire vacation. .

City Tours is a page many like as it provides ideas on how to decide what kind of Italian travel tour you want to take and how to use the tour company's web site to book your tour.

 Italian Travel Planning Finishing Touches

Bookmark my links page for easy access to all of the booking companies I recommend and use myself.

The first question you may ask is where should I start, I recommend looking over the home page just to get a feel of what is here and to know where you will be going on the site to learn.

After that I would hover over explore and read an insight I share when it comes to vacation planning. This could raise more questions like, where are the best places to go in Italy or what is the best time to visit Italy and are all important question which are answered in My Italian Travels.

Once you have read this you have two ways to explore this site, one is by the main menu at the top of the page where you can click on any category you want. Clicking on plan trip on the main menu takes you to an overview page with all the how to articles. There is also a drop down menu with other categories. The same plan trip categories can also be found behind the learn banner and for some is easier to find and pick your topic.


Behind the finish banner are articles not as much about planning but more of things you do shortly before you leave for your trip.

There are also several videos on this site to learn visually as well as reading. I also have a video series that isn't on the site but you can get access to by signing up for my travel information sheet. There is a sign up button at the top of every page.
