Consulates can provide assistance to tourists in the event they should find themselves in difficulty in Italy. They can guarantee assistance in specific individual and collective emergency situations, and may issue travel documents for the return journey in the event of loss or theft of identity documents. The consulates of nations that entertain stable, frequent relations with Italy can be found in the largest Italian cities. In addition, in many Italian cities there are honorary consulates that can provide help and support to visitors in whatever way they may require.
