Ten things NOT to do in Italy

Jump to last reply

Fodor's Top News & Features currently includes this topic. BUT ONLY TEN ?

What about:

-Do not buy from street vendors. You can be fined as well as the vendor.

-Do not start a political discussion. Not even with your Italian brother-in-law. Italians are passionate about politics, the problem is that no one Italian agrees with another Italian, so discussions can get heated.

-This is an old chestnut but still true: do not drink capuccino with your lunch or dinner. Drink wine, drink water, drink beer if you have to, but not capuccino. Italians do not drink capuccino after about 10.30 a.m. unless they have had a very late night (such as today New Year's Day). Yes I know, in touristy places anything goes and you can drink your capuccino any time you like and nobody will flinch. But it's not done elsewhere. An espresso after lunch is fine.

Has anybody else got any no-nos for Italy?
