      My husband & I will end a 14-day cruise in Rome (Civitevecchia) in May, and stay for a few days.

      When I was in Greece in 2005, I discovered that I could buy my prescription drugs (i.e. blood pressure) there without a prescription. It seems all the Americans were doing it, so I stocked up….it was a fraction of the cost of our local pharmacy.

      Does anyone know if this is true of Italy?

      Thanks for any feedback.

      Hi Suzanne — I haven’t had the need to fill a prescription in Italy yet, but I’m sure others will be able to comment.  Most of my interactions with the health care system in Italy has been seeing a doctor on short notice because one of my boys have injured themselves, etc.

      I’ll post your question to the Dall’Uva twitter feed and see what folks respond with.
