  • Top Ten Tips for Americans Traveling in Italy – "There is nothing worse than a cultural misunderstanding, especially if it has the potential to ruin a trip.

Hence, they are the same things that Italians misconstrue when they’re on American soil. So instead of letting another potential mix-up ruin even just one afternoon of someone’s long awaited adventure, I thought I’d jot down ten of the most common cultural disparities specifically for Americans traveling in Italy.
