ITALY

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL


Italy is the most vibrant in the summer, June - July. August is when the Italians go on vacation
and establishments are closed. September-October is an ideal time to visit the countryside.
Winter months from November to March are mild in the south and harsh in the north.

MUST SEE
Art and History:
Italy is a treasure house of architecture, artistic and scenic splendours. It is celebrated
for its ancient monuments and artistic heritage. Relive the glory of the gladiator era at
the Colosseum. Marvel at the famed painted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Lose yourself
in the vast labyrinth of the Vatican museums that holds antique treasures from different
countries. Make a wish at the Trevi fountain. Witness the creations of Michelangelo at
the Museum of the Works of the Duomo in the renaissance city of Florence. Pose for
pictures at the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Food and Wine:
Indulgent Italian food is a part of the countrys commitment to the good life. Two words
sum up Italian cuisine: fresh and regional. A country as regional as Italy serves an array
of pizzas, pastas and gelatos. Explore rustic petite towns draped around rolling hills in
the land of Tuscany. Gasp and gawk at the medieval-era castles, extraordinary varieties
of wine and walled towns enveloping the areas of Sienna, San Gimignano and Lucca.
Wine-tasting and a vineyard tour is a must on your visit to Chianti.
Romance:
Linger on one of the most breathtaking plazas in the world, St. Marks Square in Venice.
Watch the sun slip over the horizon on the banks of the Giudecca Canal. Discover romance
on the Italian Riviera, Cinque Terre where imposing cliffs hug seaside villages or on the
terraced slopes of the Amalfi Coast scented with lemon groves.

extra charges for night service, luggage and taxis called by telephone. All charges are listed
on a rate card displayed in the cab with an English translation. Taxis can only be hailed at
strategically located stands or by telephone. A 10% tip is expected by taxi drivers.
Metro / Bus:
The metro can be useful if you are close to the station. Smaller towns and villages most buses
pull in at the central piazza. City buses are very cheap and the tickets are easily available.
Intercity Train Travel:
There are regular and convienient trains. TrenItalia is the train network which operates
throughout Italy. Compulsory Reservation is required for intercity travel within Italy
(Eur 20 per sector) and from Italy (Eur 30 per sector upwards). Popular Routes: Rome Florence 1 hr, Florence - Venice 3 hrs, Venice - Vienna 8 hrs, Venice - Paris 12 hrs.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL


Switzerland dons two distinct identities. The summer is moderate and the winter icy. The
daylight from April 15 to the end of August allows tourists to cover a lot of ground. If you
want to indulge in activities around the snow, plan your trip between November and January.

Lakeside Towns:
Amble around the pedestrian-only streets of the small town of Lugano in the Italian
speaking Ticino. Enjoy the stunning views of the Lugano lake by the night and go on
a wine-tasting tour. Linger around Lucernes lakeside promenade. Stop by at Chapel
Bridge that spans the Reus River. Montreux and Vevey don lush vegetation, palm trees
and magnolias. Interlaken is a striking holiday destination, located between two Alpine Lake Brienzsee and Lake Thun.
Shopping:
Cuckoo clocks, Swiss cheese, army knives and chocolate top the list of the souvenirs of
Switzerland. However the most notable among the specialities of the country are Swiss
Watches such as the Rolex and the Breitling. Large department stores, small boutiques,
and world-class auction galleries can be found in Zurich.

Train:
Swiss Rail Network is extensive, clean and punctual. Any train journey in Switzerland is an
attraction in its own right because of its spectacular Journey. The Swiss pass gives unlimited
travel on all state railways, boats and buses. On some of the private mountain railways and
cable cars, the pass entitles you to a discount. Passes are available for various durations with
the options of Ist / IInd class, Consecutive or Flexible travel.
Bus:
The yellow postal bus service serves remote villages in Switzerland which are not reached by
train. These buses always depart from outside railway stations and are timed to coincide with
trains. The Swiss pass is valid on most bus routes giving free or discounted travel. Tickets for
the bus also can be purchased from the driver.

MUST SEE
Heritage:
Portugal has the oldest boundaries in Europe that date back to almost 900 years due
to which the Portuguese had to conquer and defend themselves therefore Portugal has
Castles, Monasteries, Fortresses, Palaces and other interesting monuments, many of them
UNESCO Heritage Sites, in abundance.

PORTUGAL

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL


Portugal has a warm and sunny climate, with mild winters. April to October is the best time
to visit Portugal. Due to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean weather in Portugal is moderate
during this time. It neither gets too hot in summers nor too cold in Winters.

Views and Beaches:


Portugal is blessed with 800Km of coastline with amazing sunny beaches which
invite you for a swim on the Atlantic Ocean or Mediterranean Sea! Algarve is Portugals
premier holiday destination, with pretty beaches, brash resorts and picturesque
whitewashed towns. But if you prefer the countryside visit Douro River Wine Region
or the landscapes of southern Portugal, both offer breathtaking scenic views that will be
remembered forever.
Gastronomy and Wines:
The gastronomy of Portugal is as rich and varied as its landscapes and heritage. The sea has
proved to be the most defining characteristic of Portuguese cooking. Savour the simplicity of
a just-caught grilled fish. An Arroz de Marisco rice, shellfish and fish stew is a fine choice.
And how about topping it all off with a glass of Port or Madeiran? Lose yourself in the stunning landscapes of the wine-making regions: from the charming, verdant Minho where the
vinho verde grapes grow on trellises, to the terraces of the Douro, the oldest demarcated
region in the world and home of the famous port wine.

GETTING AROUND
Metro:
The easiest and fastest way to travel in Lisbon and Porto is by a metro. The metro line covers
the entire city and gives access to most of the tourist sites. It is a cheap way of travel and offers
multi day passes. The metros run from 6 to 1 am. Tickets need to be purchased from metro
ticket offices or machines.
Bus & Trams:
The bus network is extensive connecting major cities and villages and providing a good
network within the cities too. Lisbons buses and trams are amongst the cheapest in Europe.
Buses operate 24 hrs a day in Porto and Lisbon. Tickets can also be purchased from the driver.
Rail:
There are two different kinds of train networks: one which connects major cities like Lisbon
and Porto or Lisbon and Faro (in the Algarve); and one which connects Lisbon to Sintra and
Cascais in just half an hour. Train fares are affordable.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL


Greece is at its best in the months of May, June, September and October. Mid-June to the
end of August is peak season. Most of the islands in Greece are completely out of action in
the harsh winter months.

Ancient Sites:
Your trip to Greece can never be a real one without visiting the emblem of classical
Greece the Acropolis in Athens. Even a glimpse of the Parthenonthe great marble temple
is overwhelmingly reminiscent of the ancient Western cilizations. Delphi of the Delphi Oracle
fame is a priceless treasure from the past with its structures that have endured millennia and
its location on mountain slopes overlooking olive trees and the sea. Scale to the highest point
in Santorini, the monastery of Pofitis Ilias.
Islands and Nightlife:
Take delight in the staple fare that a Greek island offers narrow alleys, fishing villages and
secluded beaches at the verdant Aegina Island in Athens. Discover Athens by night as you
savour ouzo on the idyllic harbour of Mikrolimano. Head to the tavernas to bob your head
to some Bouzouki music as you enjoy the performance of Greek Folk Dancers. Revel in
the joys of a party beach called Paradise a place to be seen in at Mykonos. Visit Thirassia,
a typical Greek village in Santorini. Stop by Oia for some charming photo opportunities.
Dont pass up the exquisite small beaches in the Northeastern Aegean. The cafes and
casinos of Rhodes also offer some good nightlife revelry. Corfu offers the more demure version
of a nightlife.

GETTING AROUND
Taxi:
Taxis in Athens are cheap and easy to catch. You can normally pick them on the road at any
time of the day but you can also call a radio taxi.
Bus:
Bus and trolley tickets are 1.50 Euros each and can be purchased at special booths and kiosks
near the bus stops. Once you are on the bus or trolley, validate your ticket by asserting it into
one of the orange-coloured meters for that purpose; the ticket will be punched and dated.
Metro:
They run every four minutes during rush hours and no less frequently than every ten minutes
at all other times (expect between midnight and 5:30 am, when the metro is closed).
Metro tickets are purchased at the stations and will cost 1.36 Euros.
Water Transport:
The luxurious and speedy vessels of the Greek coastal shipping industry, complement the
Greek multitude of islands. All passenger ships, depending on the routes they do, have First
and Economy classes, bar, restaurant and other services that vary depending on the type
of vessel.
