Yes, Duolingo is one of the most famous apps in the world. Why? Because it allows you to learn at least the basic level of the language, which, trust me, in Italy, is mandatory. Many Italians do not speak English and all of them appreciate it when foreigners speak their language. Thus, Duolingo can help you a lot during your stay in Italy. My advice is to start learning the basics of beautiful Italian language before moving to Italy.

The Underground system is frequently crowded, but still it is one of the cheapest and fastest ways to reach most points of the city
