If you want to leave for Brussels, not only famous because it is the seat of the European Parliament but also for its endless architectural and historical beauties, you are in the right place to get some extra advice on what to see. As soon as you arrive in Brussels, don’t miss the old town – you will get excited walking through its picturesque, almost fairy-tale streets, admiring the architecture, especially in the evening when all the buildings are floodlit.
An identity card valid for leaving the country allows entry into European Union countries. However, please note that there have been reports of difficulties in some countries with the recognition of renewed and stamped paper identity cards, as well as the refusal of electronic ID cards renewed with a certificate issued by the municipality.
An ordinary passport is valid for all countries whose governments are recognized by the Italian one, except for any legal restrictions, and can be obtained by all citizens of the Republic. A passport is issued (and renewed) by the police and abroad, by diplomatic and consular representatives. It is valid for 10 years, but in some cases provided for by current legislation, this validity may be shortened.
