Some of my friends will pay a short visit to Itly around Xmas time, their first time to visit the country at a special time of the year. They'll stay for a couple of days but have no idea how to make the best of the short stay...!

Can anyone be kind enough to offer some advice? thx in advance!

yeah, don't let the women walk on the outside of the sidewalks.  there are motorcyclists that will tear her purser righto ff her arm in a driver by pursing.

put your wallet in your front pocket...

make sure you can access your bank account outside of chinaland.

and have fun...and since they're Chinese, don't be afraid to eat the cheeses.

you did not say how short is this short stay. so its difficult for people to give you advice.

where is their first stop? if it is Milan, then they can simply  travel down from north to south. Milan-Florence-Rom. I think these are the musts, if they have time, they can also pay a visit westwards to Venice.

train travel is quite cheap in Italy, including the fastest and most comfortable option Eurostar. It takes only about 2-3 hours from Milan to Florence, or from Florence to Rom. So they can visit the city during the day and travel further during the evening and find a place to stay.

there are plenty of Chinese restaurants around in Italy, almost one within every 100 meters. So no need to worry about food.

have fun in Italy!

Thank you for your kind recommendation, I suggested they consider visiting HK, but was told they'd booked the tour and paid the required deposit. They agreed to visit HK next time...!
