"Money is never directly handed..." Signs, Signals & Superstitions Tip by vuuduugrrl

Signs, Signals & Superstitions, Rome: 35 reviews and 54 photos

Money is never directly handed to a cashier or server. Almost every shop or restaurant cashier, will have a dish next to them. Place the money there, and they will return your change there. It took my room's favorite barista, Giuseppe, explaining it to put our minds at ease. It's not because they are rude, it's just the way that it's done. :)
