Bel Paese; The Beautiful Country

Often referred to as “The Boot,” thanks to its geographical shape that resembles a high heel, Italy is arguably the capital of fashion, cuisine, art, and history of the western world. Once encompassing much of Europe, the middle east and northern Africa, the birth of the great Roman empire spread western knowledge, culture, and religion through its reaches. Along with a fascinating history, Italy is also well known for its gastronomy. Foodies and culinary artists flock from all regions of the world to experience the love and devotion that is put into the famed cuisine. From the verdant valleys of Tuscany to the iconic sites of Rome and the delicious Mediterranean flavors of Sicily, Italy is the epitome of experiential travel.

Entry Requirements

A valid passport is required to travel and should have at least 6 months validity after your return home. You should have at least 2 blank pages per country that you are visiting. If your passport does not meet this requirement at the time of departure, you can be denied boarding for your international flight and may consequently incur additional expenses.
According to the information that we have, you should not need a visa to enter Italy as a tourist with a US or Canadian passport. However, we always recommend that you double check this for last minute changes with your local consulate.
