Today we received a box full of “Easy Italia” brochures and pamphlets from the Italian Ministry of Tourism. After the recent Costa Concordia cruise line disaster, perhaps this is not a bad idea. In brief, the Italian government is promoting a toll free help line for tourists. According to the brochure, tourist information and assistance for free. Some examples stated in the brochure include Language support in case of emergency, information about tourists’ rights due to poor service (poor accommodations or taxi driver’s ripping you off) as well as assistance in case of flight cancellation or maritime transport (like running into an island).
