How to Get Around

For larger cities, we recommend TripAdvisor City Guides as well as Ulmon travel guide and Offline Mapsinteractive app.

2. ProntoTreno How to Explore Italy by Train? Trenitalia’s official App (free) This app allows you to buy tickets quickly and view the status of your trip.

3. Museum guides:Let these apps guide you through the discovery of Italy’s archeological and artistic treasures. Many museums offer official and unofficial apps that will help you to understand the museum and the works that make it beautiful. We love the iMiBACT app ( here on iPhone or hier Android), which includes maps and descriptions of more than 40 museums and landmarks in the country, as well as the Uffizi art history guide ($3.99).

Communication with the locals

4. LingoLook: Looking for a crash course in Italian? This offline app will help you prepare for your trip by providing quick lessons in basic vocabulary and phrases as well as their pronunciation. You can search for specific situations in Italy, such as asking directions or explaining food allergies, and you can communicate easily.

5. Word Refer: This app is great for translating specific words from Italian to English, or vice versa. It’s especially useful for situations like reading a menu without translation ( see our help on navigation menus ). Google Translate is also a good option to help you understand the general meaning of certain phrases.
