Italian Holidays

On Italian holidays shops and supermarkets will be closed. But some bars or restaurants remain open, so there is always a chance to get good food. Also important to mention: during carnival season there are some days where the city is in party mode. The mainstreets in the storical center are closed off for the day. So it might be difficult to drive around.
