    Taking a trip

    So I will be flying to Italy in a few days and was just curious would it be correct to say that I will be "on a trip in Italy" ? I will be there for a month and will travel all around the country.

    Re: Taking a trip

    You could say that you will be "travelling in Italy" or "touring Italy".

    Yes, it's grammatically correct.
