Why do the fuses overload so quickly in Italy?


Over the years we have had countless clients who have been concerned about the fact that they cannot use multiple appliances at once in a holiday rental in Florence, Venice, Rome and Italy in general. This is the reason:

The electrical grid in Italy is set up so that the consumption of electricity in all apartments and villas is limited. By law you cannot use more electricity then allocated to your property at one given time. While the government argues that this law has been set up for environmental reasons, it probably has more to do with a faulty grid infrastructure.

Solutions for your stay:

- Try and use no more than two appliances at once during your stay and the fuse box will never trip
- Make sure that you ask where the fuse box is located upon on arrival in case the fuses do overload
