From the British Embassy Rome: NEW #TravelAware video for English speakers travelling to Italy
As part of our outreach activities, we are working on a series of #TravelAware videos designed to inform English speaking tourists visiting Italy on less known customs and rules.
This is a global campaign, and we are the first mission in Europe to have produced such a video, something that indeed makes us very proud.
This video in particular points out how local train tickets need to be stamped.
The message is very simple, and is the following:
>> You need more than just a ticket to take the train in Italy!
>> Buying a rail ticket could be worthless…
>> Unless you stamp it in one of THESE machines
>> If you don’t, you could face a large fine
We are also asking British tourists to sign up for email alerts on our Italy #TravelAdvice page on GOV.UK
