Tips for traveling in Italy

Learn a few words of Italian

From “ciao” to say hello and “grazie” to say thanks, learning a few key words in the language will go far with the locals you’ll meet on tour.

Get a little lost

Some of the best places to visit in Italy are uncovered by exploring narrow cobblestone streets in your free time. Take a friend (and a map!) as you hunt for tiny cafes, charming window boxes and little surprises.

Dress like a local

Comfortable shoes are a must, but to blend in better with the locals, avoid sweatshirts and baggy jeans. Black is always a good bet, and for the women, keep in mind that many churches require shoulders and bare legs to be covered.

Eat like a local on your Italy trip

Italy is practically synonymous with “good food.” Before you land, brush up on what it means to eat like the Italians.

Cappuccinos

These frothy drinks are made with espresso and steamed milk—Italians only drink them during breakfast!

“Il primo” and “Il secondo”

You’ll see both of these on Italian menus wherever you go. “Il primo” refers to a first, smaller course (usually a light pasta or soup) and “il secondo” is the main course, made of meat or fish.

Peperoni vs. pepperoni

In Italy, “peperoni” (with one “p”) refers to bell peppers, while “salame picante” more closely resembles the American pizza topping we know as pepperoni.
