Info about, for or on Italy travel skills and beyond

(LAST EDITED/UPDATED: XX MONTH 2016)

Here are some links  about, for or on Italy travel skills and beyond:

ITALY TRAVEL SKILLS
  • Booking Italian Train Tickets  – "I was in Italy last month and once again I was reminded of how easy and cheap it is to travel in Italy by train. Don’t get me wrong, hiring a car is great for exploring the countryside. But, traveling Italy by train is convenient, fast, relatively cheap and a fun way to get around. Sadly, most Americans don’t have enough time to get outside of the Rome-Florence-Venice route. So, if you are trying to connect the dots between the bigger cities, I recommend traveling by train in Italy. Even exploring regions like Lombardia and the Veneto can easily be done by train."– on March 28, 2016 – by: Angel Castellanos – "About" – Source: Found in Travel Tips on Angels Travel Lounge AKA THE TRAVEL AMBASSADOR – "Travel Smart, Travel Well, Travel Often"
  • Getting Around Italy – "Italy offers tourists many options for transportation around the country. Once in Italy you don’t have to worry about this if you planned in advance the way to get around.  Italy is well-connected due to its transportation system; here you’ll find a lot of useful information and tips to travel around Italy by train, bus, car, plane, ferry and even bicycle; you must analyze all the options and choose the best for your trip, consider the size of your destination and the time that you’ll spend in the country; maybe you’ll prefer a fast means of transport, but you must be careful with your budget; Our main advice for you is: do not waste your precious vacation time." – "" – "About Us" – Source: ITALY TRAVEL AKA JustItaly.org – "YOUR TRAVEL GUIDE TO ITALY"

  • Travel Skills: It's In the Bag … Literally – "The subject of this Travel Topic Briefing is luggage with the emphasis on "lug". Lighter and less will make travelling more enjoyable. For this trip, and dare I say any trip, wheeled luggage with a retractable handle is the key. It's hard to believe that we once travelled without wheeled luggage. Porters have all but disappeared in most airports and train stations, so managing your luggage is now a necessity. . ." – Kathy Scopin, Tour Director – "About Us" – Source: First Trip to Italy – "Guided Tours: Italy"
    • Travel Skills: If the Shoe Fits ... – "One of the most important decisions you'll make, and one that can create the biggest dilemma is what shoes to take with you on the trip to Italy. It is imperative that "the shoe fits" and supports your feet. Remember that you will be walking on uneven cobblestones at times. . ."
  • Travel skills and techniques used by people who are blind or visually impaired – "People who are blind use varied techniques in traveling from place to place.  We wrote Chapter 2 in Accessible Pedestrian Signals: A Guide to Best Practice on travel by pedestrians who are blind or who have low vision.  A number of other sites provide comprehensive information about the travel skills and techniques used." – "" – "About ADB" – Source: Accessible Design for the Blind – "is committed to making travel safer for pedestrians with disabilities through research, consultation, education and advocacy."

Talking about these skills and mentioning anecdotes from your travels during a job interview will surely set you apart from those who have never set foot outside their hometown." – August 28th, 2014 – By Mabel Lee – "About Us" – Source: Found in the Articles section on BootsnAll – "ONE-STOP INDIE TRAVEL GUIDE EST. 1998"

  • OUTDOORS SKILLS NEEDED TO TRAVEL – "Most of us love outdoor pursuits such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking and canoeing. Yet even though we consider ourselves “outdoor types,” few of  us possess the survival skills and knowledge to be considered a true woodsman. Could you, for example, gather and cook wild foods without modern accoutrements? Do you know how to improvise or repair tools in the backcountry? Would you be able to find your way back to a vehicle or camp without a GPS or map? If your life depended on it, could you start a fire with a single match? . . ." – "About Us" – Source: ITALIAOUTDOORS – "Travel Planning Guide to Italy for an Active Vacation bike, hike, climb"
    • SURVIVAL SKILLS FOR ACTIVE TRAVEL IN ITALY– "Someone depends on you and will seek your help in a time of crisis.  Someone needs you.  It may be your wife, your children, your parents, your friend or your siblings.  You may be the only one in your circle of influence who takes the initiative to learn some basic life saving survival skills.  If the time ever comes when you are tested, don’t fail them.  Learning survival skills isn’t just about you.  It’s about using those skills to help other people when the time comes.  Don’t wait until it’s too late.  Act now.  You have an obligation to protect and provide for those who need you."

    Here are some links about, for or on street food in Italy:

    STREET FOOD IN ITALY
    • 5 Italian Street Foods to Try – "Google Italian food and immediately images of wood-fired pizzas and heaping plates of pasta pop-up. Like many, even after years of living in Italy, I don’t associate Italy with street food. We put the question to our Facebook community and taco carts were mentioned more than once along with Korean Yaki Mandu, steaming bowls of pho eaten on tiny chairs curbside in Vietnam, and lamb hot dogs smothered in rémoulade, crunchy fried onions, and sweet mustard at Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur. So when I happened to spot a Street Food Village coming to Belluno and I saw there would be a taco cart all the way from Mexico, I knew where I’d be spending my weekend! The Belluno Street Food Village is part of the Streetfood.it traveling tour, an Italian association that has been perfecting Italian recipes from all the regions of Italy that can be eaten while walking on the street. But if you can’t make it to one of the Streetfood.it tour locations or can’t wait until next year’s tour, here’s 5 Italian street foods to try and where to find them:" – By – "About Us" – Source: Luxe Adventure Traveler – "Adventure Travel with a Glass of Wine"
    • 15 Italian Street Foods You Need to Eat – "Visiting Italy is not just about seeing world-class art, sunbathing on the Riviera’s beaches, and wandering cobblestone streets in its amazing cities. Visiting Italy is also about eating. And if you want real Italian food, you don’t need to spend a lot of money in Michelin-starred restaurants: real Italian food also means street food, locally known as "cibo di strada."  Street food is that it is everywhere, and each city has its specialty.

    • Cibo di Strada: Italy’s Street Food – "Regardless of where you go, there is one thing you will find pretty much everywhere – street food! Whether it’s called take-away, street-eats, fast food, or cibo di strada; you can learn a lot about a city or region’s character and history from its street food.  Street food is mainly sold from food stands/kiosks and eaten on the go while you are out and about.  Given that Italians tend to eat dinner later, street food is a great way to curb your appetite until dinner or for tourists to try different traditional foods without breaking the bank. In recent years, Italy has seen a boom in the street food industry.  This is partly due to the economic crisis where many aspiring restaurant owners just can’t afford to open up a place and instead are taking their expertise to the streets.  And, with the changing work habits of the modern world, not everyone has the luxury of heading home to enjoy a nice long relaxing lunch with the family.  More and more people, mainly in big cities, are having to get something “al volo” or on the fly. Everyone knows that Italians take great pride in their cuisine and just because its street food doesn’t mean they will compromise on food quality.  It’s safe to say that you will still be ohhing and ahhing at the plethora of flavors you’ll find.It’s obvious that the most famous Italian street food of all is pizza, both in Italy and all over the world.  In Italy, each region has its own traditional or local street food.  So, let’s have a look at some of the most popular street foods of the bel paese." – Thursday, July 3rd, 2014 – Posted by Cherrye [Moore] – "ABOUT"  – Source: Found in the my Bella Vita Travel BLOG on the My Bella Vita TravelLLC "Calabria: Take the Toe by the Horns!"

Italy leaves no one underwhelmed. There’s so much to do in Italy that it would take a lifetime to finish. Don’t rush it in just one visit.
