Italy - good and reasonably priced hotels

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Previously under 8 cannot enter even if there's an adult? Can't recall the conditions.

2 yrs ago, the min. age to climb unaccompanied by an adult was 16, I think. Didn't notice the lower limit. Looks like they changed the rules a bit.

Has anyone done any research on data/phone plans for Italy?

Read TA extensively, and I plan to get the TIM Welcome plan. Anyone canshare their experience buying SIM cards from italian service providers? Are there language barriers and should I print out what i need and just point out to them what i am trying to buy?

To have it banned?"
