The more you know Travel


We have just returned from vacation and we already think it would be great to be able to leave again for another short getaway, perhaps in a city of art, not too far from where we are, with a nod to the Visit Italy mood to discover artistic beauties of our country, sure to stay within a limited budget and also calculating the tourist taxes, now widespread throughout the national territory but which often remain an unpleasant surprise for the unsuspecting traveler.

Tourist taxes are local taxes required for travelers staying in accommodation facilities of certain locations and can be easily calculated a priori.

A low-cost flight or a high-speed train, light luggage, a city guide in your hands and notes scattered about the best local restaurants. On balance, a weekend in early September in a city of art can cost us very little and fill our hearts with happiness and beauty, just calculate all the costs, book a bed and breakfast in the city center in time.

Sometimes, despite being super organized travelers, attentive to every detail, we forget to assess the impact of tourist taxes on our trip, they are generally low costs, because, with the exception of Rome, tourist taxes cannot exceed 5 euros per day by person, but it is always advisable when planning a vacation to know what costs will be incurred.

We recommend 5 cities of art to visit right away, just enough time to clean the trolley from the sand to fill them with history and culture, also indicating the range of the planned tourist taxes.


The capital of business and fashion is a city that changes clothes every day always offering beautiful as well as impeccable. To visit to admire Piazza Duomo, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and the Castello Sforzesco. And for those who also want to take a sip of Milan to drink, the canals, which were made navigable by the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci and which today together with San Babila constitute one of the most in areas of the city. Tourist tax between 2 and 5 euros, just under an aperitif.


The eternal city, the great beauty, the history that flows under the feet of the thousands of tourists who trample its cobblestones every day. The Colosseum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain, Piazza San Pietro. There is no need to list all the wonders of Rome, just as one day is not enough to admire its beauty, paying attention to the tourist tax, which in the capital is really salty and can go up to 7 euros.


The city of the mandolin and the sfogliatella, where everything is music, above all the melody of the sea that you end up spending hours contemplating. The Maschio Angioino, the Castel dellovo, the Certosa di San Martino, the Madre Museum and the magic of Spaccanapoli. Getting lost in the alleys, and resurfacing on the Neapolitan promenade will make you lose your head. Tourist tax included between 1 and 5 euros, between a sfogliatella and a pizza in short.


The red, Bologna the red, Bologna the fat. If you are looking for definitions, you can choose a different one for a city that is certainly not due to stereotypes. Piazza Maggiore, the basilica of San Petronio, the Torre Degli Asinelli, the Basilica of Santo Stefano, are just some of the wonders of this city, the only one in the world in which you wish it rains to walk under the arcades and capture only the magic of the storm. Tourist tax between 1 and 4 euros, even if it does not rain.


The cradle of the Renaissance, a city where everything is art, and the queues in front of the Uffizi amaze you because here everything is an open-air museum, and you would feel the obligation to queue even to breathe the air so full of history. Do not miss the Brunelleschi’s Dome, the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, Palazzo Vecchio, Santa Maria Novella, the Basilica of Santa Croce and all the beauty that you will be able to hold in your eyes. Tourist tax from 2 to 5 euros, without queuing.
