Trieste Local Customs: 37 reviews and 67 photos

If you understand Italian, be aware that the word volentieri, that means "(yes,) with pleasure!" in standard Italian, is used in Trieste with the meaning of "no, sorry!". For example, if you ask in a shop "May I have...?" and they answer "volentieri", don't expect to get what you wanted.
