My boyfriend and I are traveling for two weeks in Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice and Almalfi Coast.) We plan to book some tours online and already booked our hotels.
Scenario we are considering is how much cash we each should bring given we both have Chase Credit Cards which have no transaction fees. I know Italy is sketch - I got my debit card information stolen when I was there in 2012. Now they have the chip reader which is nice but I am still going to be wary at restaurants and small shops.
In this case it will be nice to have the credit card but for purchases most recommended in cash - what would you spend cash on and how much money should we each bring?
