"Italians are victims of their..." Italy Local Custom Tip by barcodex
Italy Local Customs: 314 reviews and 342 photos
Italians are victims of their cult of food. When other Europeans have their lunchtime, Italians have several hours-long siesta with eating unbelievable amounts of food. Be ready to not be served at petrol station at siesta time - that's what occured with one of my pals who also was in Italy. Situation is a bit better in tourist regions, where all Italian traditions co-exist more smoothly with traditions of tourists.
And yes, eat with measure, do not follow Italian traditions too eagerly, otherwise you will find yourself in a hospital with torn stomach ;)
