Everyone wants cash - What do we do?

Jump to last reply

We are a few days away from our 10-day trip to Italy. And it seems as though everyone wants cash -- from our apartment rental owners, to our driver, to our first cooking class...

When we arrive in Florence on Saturday (at 8:30 pm) we need to pay the renters 1000 euros - cash (we rented through VRBO). Then, we need to pay a driver 140 euros and then the final payment for a cooking class of 500 euros.

Are banks open on Sundays? Or do we just keep going to the ATMs? Is it safe to travel to Italy with 1000 euros cash (not to mention what we might need for other items en route - we are traveling with four children).

I'm just not sure how to manage all these cash payments.

Please help!
