I traveled extensively solo through Italy, mainly Tuscany. It's very safe, train travel is awesome and easy, and I never felt unsafe. I definitely used my instincts. I found there were people everywhere who spoke English or could at least understand enough to help. Cinque Terre was fantastic as was Cortona, San Gimignano, Florence, Venice, and Pisa.Posted: October 2, 2023
I traveled through northern Italy for a month last year and felt very safe. I didn’t have a lot of money to spend on hotels, so I stayed in hostels, which were wonderful. I chose the hostels based on location and reviews. I was never disappointed. However, I would recommend choosing dorm rooms that are segregated by male and female.Posted: September 21, 2023
I spent a week solo in Florence & Milan (Airbnb in Florence, hotel in Milan) and I felt totally safe walking around. I wore a crossbody purse and didn't take it off of me even when eating meals. I didn't have any issues and it was a beautiful trip. I had a great time.Posted: September 21, 2023
Italy can be a safe country for solo female travelers, but it's still important to take some precautions to ensure your safety. Here are some safety tips for solo female travelers in Italy:
Always be aware of your surroundings and trust your instincts. Be aware of people who may be following you or trying to take advantage of you.
Italy is a conservative country, so dress appropriately. Avoid wearing revealing clothing and try to blend in with the locals.

What is the best beach city to visit in Italy? Something with airport, cute town and nice beach to swim? A trip is for mom and my younger sister, so it should be something not a party but cute and calm vacation 😊Posted: August 27, 2023
