Italian – French and English are also widely spoken and understood.
Italy has plenty of public transport, from the trains to the metro in cities like Milan. The roads (and Italian drivers) are notoriously terrifying for foreigners so it’s often better to take a taxi than hire a car.
Each town in Italy has it's own patron saint and shuts down to celebrate the saint’s day each year (e.g. Rome is Sts. Peter and Paul, June 29th). Alongside Christmas and Easter, the other big religious festivals are Epiphany (6th January) and All Saints Day (1st November). All of Italy celebrates Labour Day (1st May) and also Liberation Day (April 25th).

What Couples Say
“My husband and I stayed at Castello del Nero during our wedding week. The property is beautifully restored, maintaining its original charm while also including modern features like air conditioning. Plus, it comes complete with a view of the valley.
In addition to the impressive surroundings, the food was also excellent. We enjoyed the standout breakfast each morning, as well as great dinners at La Taverna and La Torre.
But the staff is what really made our stay special. From Patrick the bellman’s friendly greeting and Giulia/Manuela’s planning suggestions in the front office, to Tiziano’s assistance with restaurant reservations and Ilaria’s help at the front desk, everyone was professional and hospitable.
In fact, they went above and beyond, covering our bed with silk rose petals on our wedding night, and returning the tie my husband wore during the ceremony (which we’d accidentally left with our driver.)
We’ve been fortunate to stay at some great properties, but Castello del Nero was certainly one of the most memorable!”
