"In the tourist areas just..." Florence Local Custom Tip by Packerman

Florence Local Customs: 145 reviews and 192 photos


In the tourist areas just about everyone can speak some English, but if not just use hand gestures. Italians really like children so don't be afraid if they want to pinch your baby's cheeks. Italians like to take it easy, so join them especially since it's your vacation and sit somewhere near this building and eat some gelato and watch people. We took about 30-45 minutes eating our gelato on the steps right of this building in the shade. It was fun listening to all the loud Americans.
