Italian tourist offices
Where to get Italy tourist information online
Tourist offices are easy to find: just head to the train station or major square and look for a sign with a cursive lowercase "i" on it.There are, of course, loads of excellent private websites out there—some commercial, others editorial—offering great intel ion Italy. (Point of fact: you're on one right now).
What are listed below, however, are Italy's official tourist web sites, run (or deputized) by the national, regional, or provincial authorities and your best one-stop shopping to get the most up-to-date information on all the fiddly little details that help with trip planning (current open hours and admission prices, downloadable bus maps, links to lodgings, etc.).
Italia.it - The national Italian tourist office website. Could be far more useful and up to date (they still tell you how many lire it takes to make a call from a pay phone—the Italian lira was phased out a decade ago).
www.informadove.it - Terribly useful site, sort of an online yellow pages; unfortunately, not yet available in English (though they have the little flag icons for switching languages, they don't seem to work).
If one of the tourist office links seems to be down, try the European Travel Commission or Officialtravelinfo.com or Tourism Offices Worldwide Directory (you never know which one will happen to have the link to the local office you're looking for).
