Subject: Re: Best credit card for Italy?

We used ATM cards in even the smallest towns. Almost every bank has an ATM machine. The only problem we occasionally encountered were rather low limits on the amount you could withdraw, but most machines would allow you to put your card right back in and take out more money.

Credit cards are generally accepted. Most easily used are VISA and Mastercard. Many places take American Express, but they prefer the other two because, I think of higher fees with American Express. If you take two cards, you should carry one and your husband the other, just in case.

Have a great trip.
