ciao amigos.

Going to be doing a bunch of travelling to Italy (Fabriano) for the forseeable future. I may even relocate there sometime! What do I need to know?

1) Woking on the language. I took latin for a while so many words are somewhat familiar. I suck at the pronunciation, though.

2) Driving. Going to be renting a car. I've been driving stick since I could drive so that won't be an issue, but anything regarding traffic? How are cops?

3) Food. Anything to avoid (shady chains, etc)

4) Things that would get me into trouble socially that is uncommon here in the US.

ciao amici (amigos is spanish)
1) learning the native language always earns respect

2) I can only shed light based upon my experiences, law enforcement seems more laxed either that or people are just ballsy-er from what i've seen them get away with and that i've attempted as well lol.
Just make sure you always have your documents on you because I've seen and have been stopped at several checkpoints

3) Way more mom and pop's places and havent had a bad experience yet in regards to quality and taste of the food. Just don't expect great service, but its also not customary to leave a 15%+ tip, in fact most people don't leave a tip at all and if they do its only a few euros. Maybe thats why the service isnt great

4) Italians have become very accustomed to Americans visiting their country and are aware of the cultural differences so just be respectful and use common sense (and when i say be respectful, I don't only mean to other people, be respectful the land itself, DONT LITTER!), you'll be fine. Step outta line and someone will gladly give you their 2 cents lol

P.S. gas is about $9 a gallon over there so keep that in mind

Well, Fabriano isn't a good place to learn Italian, but you'll find a warm welcome
It's not so hard to learn it.
For the 2nd point, cops are permissive, but you should observe speed limits, using seat belts and not talking on cell phones except with earphones (the tickets are higher than in your country).
Food. You must visit "Il Piacere Della Carne". It's a fantastic restaurant. You can find more advices on tripadvisor :thumbs:
For the last point, i don't know what do you mean. Can you write me an example?

Awesome! Soundslike you're familiar with the area. I'll be sure to check out il Piacere.

On the last point, I call them social colloquialisms. Things like pointing the bottom of your feet at another in Iraq.

Understood.
Well, you'll never be in trouble with that.
An advice: you should rent a diesel car. The gasoline is more expensive here than in other countries.

Hello, I'm in Italy for only a few more months. Does anyone know of any shops that do wraps and can do demon eyes for headlights in the Brescia area?
Thanks!


Ciao, sono in Italia solo per pochi mesi. Qualcuno sa di negozi che fanno gli involucri e possono fare gli occhi dei demoni per i fari nel Brescia?
Grazie!
