Italy uses the Euro. For more information on currency conversions visit XE. Before you leave, notify your bank, credit card company, or other financial institutions that you are going overseas. Avoid carrying cash and consider using traveler's checks or major credit cards instead (but make sure they are accepted at your destination before departing on your trip).

There is no obligation to tip in Italy but is appreciated for good service. You’re probably already paying a supplement through the servizio (service charge) on your restaurant bill and/or the coperto (cover charge), sometimes both. If you’d like to tip a hotel porter for bringing up your bags, a helpful concierge or a thorough tour guide, and you can consider leaving a tip by rounding up the bill, just a few Euro.
Imagine your reaction if your deposition had to be rescheduled because of a major local holiday when everything was closed. Don’t let that happen to your depo. You can see a complete list of holidays in Italy here: timeanddate.com/holidays/italy/.
Check with your physician to see which shots are required and/or recommended for your trip to Italy. You can check online resources like the U.S. Department of State Italy country page or contact the Italian Embassy or Consulate for current entry requirements. The World Health Organization (WHO) can provide their recommendations for vaccinations and other travel health precautions for your trip abroad.
