Domestic Transportation in Italy
Means of Transport Recommended in Town
- The metro is not extensive, even in large cities. Taxis are expensive but there are a lot of them on the streets. If the light is green, they are free; if it is red, they are taken. Not all drivers speak English; have the address you are going to written down in Italian on a piece of paper.

Means of Transport Recommended in the Rest of the Country
- The train remains the easiest means of transport for travelling around the country. The tariffs per kilometer are more reasonably priced than in most European countries. The large cities are linked with each other: Turin-Milan-Venice, Milan-Bologna-Bari, Rome-Genoa-Turin, and Rome-Naples-Palermo. Apart from the "Pendolini' and "Eurostar", trains do not always keep to the timetable.

Traveling By Yourself
- Most of the road network is good. However, the lanes are very narrow and the curves very sharp on some motorways (Salerno-Reggio di Calabria for example) and this can make them dangerous when driving at excessive speed.
- Driver's License
- Tourists who have a driver's license from a European Union State can drive in Italy. People who have a license from outside the EU must have with their license an authorization issued by their country of origin translated into Italian. For further information, consult the Italian Ministry of Transport website.
