"Tipping at the restaurants is..." Florence Local Custom Tip by catbert

Florence Local Customs: 145 reviews and 192 photos

Tipping at the restaurants is common, about 10-15% of the price.

Moste of the people understand english but they may answer you in Italian. But thats alright.

The only time i think you may be disappointed is when you don´t get what you want and you complaine. Don´t think that you will get the same support that you might expect in other western country. The people may get a litle rude and not as polite as you might thought. But i have no problem with it. Just stay polite and nice and they will help you.

The other thing is that Italy is a beurocratzy. Wich means that people at the busstation, tourist information and so on will only help you with information that´s within their job description.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
