"Talk to Italians or at the..." Italy Favorite Tip by srchlc

Italy General: 753 reviews and 735 photos


Favorite thing: Talk to Italians or at the very least, listen to them. I don't claim to speak Italian although I live here, but I can get by in a pinch. The Italian language is absolutely beautiful to listen to. It sounds very musical and the Italians are so expressive. Their whole bodies are used in conversation!

Fondest memory: Italian food is so good! Once you have tasted all the pastas, the scallopini, and oh my, the gelato nothing else will ever be the same. Just remember that Italian people only eat out when they have lots of time to do so, so don't try to eat in a restaurant in a hurry. They bring you the next course when they are ready and there is no rushing them! Relax drink some moscato (my personal favorite!) and enjoy yourself.
