"Language" Italy Local Custom Tip by mileslunn

Italy Local Customs: 314 reviews and 342 photos

Compared to most Western European countries, knowledge of a second language is quite low in Italy so although English is widely understood in the tourist areas, it is not widely spoken elsewhere so knowing some Italian can be very helpful. The good news is Italians are not picky about pronounciation so you can speak it horribly and they will still understand.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
