Italian "Tourist Tax" more prevalent-- or is it just us??

Jump to last reply

will post a trip report of our amazing 4 weeks in italy as soon as i'm less jet-lagged.

hubbie and i, however, have been surprised at how much more often we were either almost short-changed or bills were added up wrong this trip. (we call these events a 'tourist tax."( each time it happened, we politely pointed out the mistake and were politely apologized to.

we wondered together whether it was coincidence, the economy, or the fact that we speak more italian now and are more comfortable checking or questioning. anyone have thoughts on this?? ?
