Lake Garda's Mediterranean-esque climate has a slight influence on the city's climate, but the humidity is still relatively high throughout the year.
The official language of Italy is Italian. English is understood in the larger cities but not in the more remote parts of the country.
The Euro (EUR) is the official currency, which is divided into 100 cents. Those arriving in Italy with foreign currency can obtain Euros through any bank, ATM or bureaux de change. ATMs are widespread. Travellers cheques can be exchanged with ease in the large cities, not so in the smaller towns. Credit cards are accepted in upmarket establishments and shops around the cities. Banks are closed on weekends, but tend to have better rates than casas de cambios.
