Yeah I stayed in Airbnbs in other places in Europe and in Italy, but for some reason the options for Rome just did not seem very appealing to me. Might be that private residences in Rome tend to be old or not modernised. I saw many options that were 90-100+ EUR/night for a private room in a flat! The nice and affordable places were all very far out of Rome. You may have different results or search criteria, but that's at least what I realised for Rome. I think the hotels might be putting on deals now too, as tourism is coming back but there are still many empty rooms.
mrqsunitgajocv thank you will check it out
I go to Rome every year and I think axnbiltxvmkmis has perhaps just had an unfortunate experience.
sxsinmjioo I adore Testaccio and it has some of the best eating options. Trastevere is also good. Arguably the most central is around Campo dei Fiori, but it will be more expensive. Keep some cash aside for a taxi to the airport/train station, and keep an eye on โ€˜sciopero Romaโ€™ (strike Rome).
no harm just checking out Expedia/hotels as well! and plus, Rome was super hot, so it's nice to have that hotel central AC blasting ๐Ÿ˜„
Yes, the climate in Italy is unusual this year, but cooler temperatures are on the wing :)
Yeah donโ€™t get an Airbnb without a/c, Iโ€™ve even resorted to asking the owners if itโ€™s the proper wall-mounted a/c and not substitutes
you can also download the myCicero app for public transport. otherwise, paper bus/train tickets can only be purchased at the stations or at tobacco shops, and only with cash (for the bus tickets). the app will let you buy e-tickets for buses and some trains with your credit card, so you can buy a bus ticket only when you're sure you're going to take the bus, and not worry about having cash or finding a sale point.
Rome has a good network of local train stations included within the price of a public transport ticket. If (I mean when) thereโ€™s a public transport strike they continue to function. Itโ€™s also the quickest way by far e.g. to get from Termini to Trastevere

We went here nearly every day while in Rome Santโ€™ Eustachio Il Caffรจ
Linari in Testaccio
But Naples is a surer bet
Thank you ๐Ÿ™

hey, I just arrived to Italy yesterday, but im a little bit confused about the masks in public. Is it mandatory to wear masks outside? Because almost everybody seems to be wearing them on the streets
In theory they are not, it happens sometimes that you exit from a place and you forget to remove it, plus there are people that maybe feel safer.
ah, got it. I thought they were mandatory even outside
Perhaps it could be mandatory in some cities where numbers are rising, specially if you visit big cities it could be a good idea to check.
im in Milan atm
Right now only in Sicilia I think. I would suggest do as other people around you if you donโ€™t want to get fines (in general almost impossible in Italia), wear it if you think you can have a/the virus, or if you feel safer with it.
got it, thanks!
Do the InterCity trains have power outlets and wifi? I can't find a straight answer online
Much appreciated, also if anyone could point me to where the flex fares are so I can figure if it's worth it to show up day-of
```This fucking nomad list doesn't allow me to answer with links. Anyway, there are power outlets and usually they work, but it happens that they don't.
That I know wifi is available only on Frecciarossa and Frecciargento, the fastest trains of Trenitalia.```
hmm, that's not ideal. Thanks!
Usually there is an economy fare that vary with time, and in general the first class economy is same price of second class no-economy. They are not particularly expensive trains, if you value more flexibility than price it could make sense to buy them in the same day. For other faster trains (Frecce) buying in advance if you buy in advance you can save much more.
Ah ok so the IC trains it _probably_ doesn't matter so much but for the frecce it's much better to book in advance if you can plan things
And you always have the plan b of Regionale/Regionale โ€œVeloceโ€, that have fixed price.
I like to work on the train, so it's a balance. I don't think the regional ones have outlets ๐Ÿ˜•
thank you!
Most of Regionali veloci start to have the outlets, but not the oldest ones. Specially moving along the sea itโ€™s doable, while itโ€™s almost impossible when you cross the Appennini. When I go to Roma from the east coast I have connection only here and there.
Has anyone used the TrenItalia rail pass? Can you combine that with the same-day trip offer to save on a whole trip? Or am I being too sneaky ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sorry , but I am just reading your reply now. In the end I managed to find one, though with a lot of difficulties. Thanks a lot though
Hello everyone,
Since I had a lot of trouble to do the vaccine in #italy as a foreigner, I wanted to share my experience to help those in a similar situation.

In order to do the vaccine, the pre-requisite is to have a Codice Fiscale (Fiscal number), and even though on their official website, it does not mention that a tourist can obtain the codice fiscale, in reality you can do it.

You simply have to book an online appointment at Agenzia delle Entrate first to obtain the codice fiscale, which they give you right on the spot. (Though in order to book the appointment, the irony is that you have to insert a codice fiscale, so I asked an italian friend to book it for me)

Once you obtain the codice fiscale, you are set to be vaccinated in any vaccination centres, and can obtain your #_covid19 certificate.

Good luck

Could somebody recommend an accountant in Italy specialising in helping self-employed remote workers? I'm pondering to move to Italy to live for a while, and would like to understand what it would entail.
Planning a 2 week vacation in Italy next week (flying from Germany)

Would appreciate any tips / reccs especially in the context of covid (only had 1 vaccine so probably gonna need tests to visit places?)
No real preferences but wanna go somewhere beachy for few days
The first dose should be enough to get a green pass, 15 days after the vaccination. It decades if you donโ€™t take the second one when itโ€™s time to do it. Or at least this is what I know it should be valid for Italians.
lkxyoa I'm here and vaxxed. How do I get a green pass???
I would suggest tu install the `Immuni`app and check the โ€œEU digital Covid certificateโ€ section. And then insert the info you have (hoping they are enough).

For some strange reasons Nomad List inhibit people to share links, even if Iโ€™m one of the few that answer in this channel with continuity. Anyway, if you check this channel you see a link of โ€œsaluteโ€ โ€œgovโ€ โ€œitโ€ with info about coronavirus in Italy for travellers.
Hi, anyone in Florencia? Next month my wife and me will go to Florencia by own car. We would like to live there at least for one month and then move to Rome and later Napoles, or perhaps further south if the weather is too cold. Any recommendation or hints about Florencia please?
Lovely place to visit (even more so the surrounding region), but itโ€™s not the most liveable city IMO. I suspect the weather will be much better in Rome during October (thereโ€™s even a term for it in Italian, le ottobrate romane). Naples and the surrounding region and islands should still be awesome in late October, and not infested with tourists, and then you could head further south to Sicily. That said Iโ€™m in Rome now and the weather is unusually weird and chilly for this time of year, so who knowsโ€ฆ
Go South...even in Covid times Florence is a tourist hellhole. Great for a day or two, but I would never live there. Naples is vibrant, dirty, filled with amazing art and culture and mind-blowing food. Palermo the same. Lecce ditto. Or give Perugia a shot if you want to be in a hilltown kept livable by the student population. I usually pick a new town for a month and then take day trips...these have all been some recent faves. My 2 cents :)
Hey! ๐Ÿ‘‹
I'm planning to go to Italy on vacation during a week this month, but I'm hesitant about which city/cities to visit. We have already been to Rome (loved it) and Milan (not very exciting), and now we're thinking about repeating Rome, going to Florence or Napoli, or doing a train tour at the Amalfi coast.
Any tips? itairplane
Culinary? Bologna and Emilia Romana region (parma, modena)
Florence is one of my favorite city in Italy, soooo beautiful and charming.
I also like Napoli and Amalfi coast which is georgeous. But i think it's better there with a car, although quite hard to drive.
๐Ÿ›ฌ ziestb just arrived in Positano, #italy
Why nobody never mentions my region, Marche ๐Ÿ˜ž
Thereโ€™s a reason Florence attracts as many tourists as it does. The old saw about Italy having 25% of the worldโ€™s UNESCO attractions in less than 1% of the landmass applies with bells on to Firenze. But you have to be a bit _furbo_ about enjoying it without paying too much economically or in annoyance. They all have their downsides; I love Naples but come on, itโ€™s a shithole by any objective measure. Lecce and La Puglia make sense if youโ€™ve done the basics. Rome is the only place I could live long-term (Milan is ruled out for climate, expense and snobbery) and it has its passionate detractors, whose complaints I quite understand.
Le Marche is absolutely beautiful bvehni I was there for most of August.
I second Bologna, lovely place. Also, the glory of Italy is in the smaller art towns - Mantova, Urbino, Ferrara, Parma, Spoleto. The list is truly endless. It would be easier to make a list of places in Italy that lack anything to see, and if so, the food will compensate anyway. Base somewhere like Bologna, pick off Parma and Ferrara and maybe Mantova (bring a large appetite), rinse and repeat for each region.
You kujmxvbfu have fully understood this country ๐Ÿ‘
I have absolutely incurable Italophilia
While in Urbino I hope you also visited Fossombrone, Mondavio, and some other little castles like Mombaroccio. In Cartoceto there are probably the best cheese and olive oil of the region. Even if I prefer area around Arcevia and its little castles, and views around Macerata and Fermo, around Sibillini mountains (Sarnano, Montefortino, Smerillo, โ€ฆ :top:).
Gradara, Conero, Offagna, Senigallia, Numana. I was visiting someone and not able to travel around the whole time so thereโ€™s plenty left to see for another visit. Fell in unhealthy love with ciauscoloโ€ฆ
This weekend there is the festival of Ciauscolo, in Sarnano :smiling_face_with_3_hearts:
I didnโ€™t mention Gradara and beaches around Conero because they are too obvious :slightly_smiling_face:
Senigallia is 15 minutes from my house, pity I didnโ€™t know.
Kudos hosbchjae not a lot of people travel so deep.

As unique base I would probably get a place in this region, but if somebody is more interested in north also Ravenna could be a good option.
Next time, nkuvdv (and there are reasons Iโ€™m likely to be drawn back there) - volentieri. We can have probably the worldโ€™s smallest nomadlist meetup.

For the Green Pass you need to be Fully Vaccinated with an approved vaccine from the EU. The only single dose vaccine is Johnson & Johnson
ah shoot thought so
what do you need covid tests for (mueseums? restaurants?) and how do you easily get them in Italy?
For indoors, like museum or dining you need the Green Pass; note patio is outdoors and no covid test
I come from a country that has an equivalent to the Green Pass so I don't know how to get vaccinated in Italy
iโ€™ve only had 1 vaccine so no green pass - are there test stations around museums etc?
Right now they provide the green pass ten days after the first shot (you loose it if you donโ€™t get the second one when you are supposed to do it).
Please, let me know your experiencies with coliving in Italy. Me and my wife would like to try it.
I'm still researching but did not find anything I liked. I'll let you know
Thanks a lot :)
Do either of you speak Italian? Do you know any Italians there? That will make the biggest difference. This link is in Italian (but it's mostly just a table), a list of cities with the best quality of life in Italy, from their equivalent of the FT. Florence quite far down. Going back to my earlier point Crotone is in last place but I had one of the very best meals of my entire life thereโ€ฆ
They take account of things like ease of finding work, greenness etc so bear that in mind.
No, we don't speak Italian and we don't know anyone there. Thanks a lot for the link and the hints... I will study it. I want to live some time in Florencia and also in Rome, but also would like to meet other places more easy to live with a good quality of live. It's great your help. Thanks.
pvoyvcwms very interesting the link you shared.
Great link, eqbafxgfw
I stayed in Florence for a couple months and it is awesome. The art, architecture, and history throughout the whole city is amazing. Wine is cheap and delicious. There are lots of American university students there, so the nightlife is pretty good. Not sure what other kinds of young peoples activities she'd be interested in.
My Airbnb host in Rome is asking for "documents for registration". Is this for tourism/police registration and what documents are the minimum I can provide?
your id/passport should be enough
that's what we mean with "documents" usually
yes it's for the authorities
Hello! Iโ€™d like to explore northern Italy for a few days next week, preferably by car. Unfortunately I need automatic transmission.
Iโ€™m trying the standard websites kayak/rentalcars etc but they all come up as either fully booked or prohibitively expensive (~100 euros/day).
Any local tips to find a better option? Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:
Pickup is flexible, preferably somewhere on the western side (as Iโ€™m coming from Nice), and dropoff preferably around Venice.
In this country they are everything but common, but usually in airports you can find some.
How far north are you? It was cheaper for me to book in Austria and pay the cross-border charge, last time I was there.
Ah interesting. Well, Iโ€™m in Nice at the moment, so wherever I pick up the car, Iโ€™ll need to reach via public transport.
I'm considering renting an auto too (_from Rome_). Since you have done the research what price are you hoping for algkkmtkc ?

Hi everyone, quick โ“ Iโ€™ve only had 1 vaccine shot so far so not fully vaccinated but I want to visit some museums in Rome that require a green pass - can I get a covid test for this like are covid test results a kind of green pass? Iโ€™ve seen some testing stations around Rome, is that sufficient for entering Museums / Vatican City? Thanks!
You can get a green pass:
โ€ข with a negative covid test (valid 48-72 hours)
โ€ข after ten days from the first shot (it expires if the second one is skipped)
โ€ข the second shot keeps the green pass valid (for x months)
๐Ÿ›ฌ zjzuae just arrived in ๐Ÿ• Naples, #italy

I got a test at a pharmacy for EUR 22 and that got me a green pass. Note you have to say itโ€™s for green pass or you get a different certificate
