The Italian Mode

Ok Americans this one is for you. When you come to Italy, beware, the Italians don't work like we do. They actually take time to enjoy life and don't work as much. This means, long lunches, siestas, and a carefree attitude many Americans aren't used to. Trust me, it frustrated me sooooo much when I was first introduced to this way of life, but you'll get used to it, and end up loving it in the end.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Plenty to See
  • Cons:Hectic at first, but once you find a groove you'll be fine. LOTS OF TOURISTS!!
  • In a nutshell:Beautiful, Wonderous, Must See, but only once.

    I believe the original statue of David stood where the copy now stands. Nice page, btw!

    You're right, Americans could learn a lot about enjoying life from the Italians! : )
