Top Italy Trip Questions: 60 FAQs We Answer

At Italy Beyond the Obvious, we’ve been creating custom itineraries for independent travelers for over a decade. In order to give the best advice to our travelers, we start by asking a few questions. But during our five-step trip planning process, we also answer many Italy trip questions that clients have for us about their trip specifically and Italy travel in general.

Below are the top 10 most common Italy trip questions we receive in each of six categories, listed in no particular order. Please note that these are only the questions, not the answers. The answers to these questions vary based on the traveler: their interests, priorities, travel companions, budget, time of year, energy levels, specific Italy destination, and more. There are a couple of exceptions; for those, I’ve included the answers below.


Italy trip questions: overall itinerary

Italy trip questions: accommodations


Italy trip questions: guides, tours, and activities

Italy trip questions: logistics


Italy trip questions: food

Italy trip questions: general
