Italy Local Customs: 314 reviews and 342 photos
Italians are very demonstrative. When greeting each other, you may kiss each other's cheeks, embrace warmly and offer a long handshake.
When visiting a church in Italy, women should cover their heads. Also, you should not wear shorts or sleeveless blouses when touring a church.
When dining, the man should pour the wine, as it is considered unfeminine for a woman to pour wine. Also, do not drink too much wine during a meal because wine is seen almost as a food, thus, over consumption is considered rude.
To signal that you don't know or care about something in particular, simply shrug your shoulders.
