...be on time


Italy is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

The time difference between Italy and some major cities is as follows:

  • Taipei: + 7 hours
  • Beijing: + 7  hours
  • Shanghai: + 7 hours
  • Tokyo: + 8 hours

In 1996 the European Union (EU) standardized an EU-wide Summertime, or Daylight Saving Time (DST). The EU's version of Daylight Savings runs from the last Sunday in March (when the clocks go forward by an hour) through to the last Sunday in October (when they go back by an hour).


When first arriving in Italy, this can have a dramatic impact on a traveler as jet-lag hits. Although jet lag is just a fact of life with travel, there are many things you can do to minimize the effects.

  • Adjust your schedule a few days before departure.
  • Start thinking on local time as soon as you board that plane, set your watch to Italy time as you wait for take off.
  • Keep hydrated on the flight and after arrival, this is crucial and you will be surprised at how much better you will feel.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
  • Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables both before and after arriving.  This should be easy to do once in Italy, just head to the morning market and take your pick.
  • Try to exercise and get outside the day before you leave.  Once in Italy do your best to stay awake.  Walking around town and getting as much fresh air as possible will help; sunshine is the ultimate antidote to jet lag.
