Valeggio sul Mincio Local Customs: 45 reviews and 45 photos

by matcrazy1

There are many different kinds of police in Italy:

1. Guardia di Finanza - Financial Police (smuggling, tax and other business frauds);

2. Virgili Urbani - City Police (city traffic and parking);

3. Polizia Stradale - Road Police (on freeways/motorways);

4. Carabinieri - basic police formation responsible for public order (in emergency call 112); there are a lot of jokes on "stupid" carabinieri, maybe becuase 80% of them are from southern Italy; keep in mind that there are a lot of prejudicies against the South in Italy; well, I found Sicilly the most fascinating part of Italy;

5. Policia Statale - State Police; you should report thefts just to them.

Well, this uniformed guy, on my picture, belongs to City Police of Valeggio sul Mincio.

Excuse, this tip will be transferred to my Italy page.

Phone: 112
