Travel Tips for Dos and Don’ts in Italy

Forte dei Marmi, Tuscany Region, Italy
I had the best Italian food ever in Forte dei Marmi. Don't go to the tourist traps though. If you go down some of the sidestreets in town and try out a local restaurant that even looks a bit shabby, you will get the best food ever; and the prices are much more reasonable too.

Caorle, Veneto Region, Italy
Hmmm... are you German? Brittish? NO? well, Caorle is.... quite a place out there, in the middle of nowhere. Unlike the stereotypical idea, the truth is that the place is a little town where locals work their ass of in the summer season... the beach is crowded of umbrellas standing on a row, in a perfect, straight line. There is no space for your own towel... Basically, its just a little beachtown that is trying to make money out of foreign (mainly german and british) tourists in the summer months. YOU NEED A CAR, because there is not much to do in the village.... with a car you can get to venice and other cities, which you shouldnt miss if you are in this part of italy. Seriously... there is not much to see or do... if you wanna party, choose Jesolo instead of Caorle... if you go for the beach, go further south where the water is clear.... or why not to Croatia, same sea, but less people and cheaper... If you still go... enjoy!

Venice, Veneto Region, Italy
When in Venice, dodge any restaurant that caters 'tourist menus'...they are overly expensive and not worth the money. Instead dare to get lost in the many small alleyways throughout the city and dine where the locals dine. ...and make sure you buy an ice cream cone when in Venice. The Italian 'gelatti' is quite delicious indeed !

Venice, Veneto Region, Italy
Will go back again just for the ice-creams, the Gondolas are a rip off so beware, or do a deal first. The shops streets are fasinating , as is the history of the buildings. Avoid drinking in St Marks square the'll charge you 2 arms 2 legs for a coke, find an ice-cream booth they sell cold drinks also keep loose change for the loo's. The night life is romantic and there's live music twinkling lights in St Marks square, try and go in the local August holidays it's busy but worth it, Even thunder storm;s are romantic at night.
