Tourists can dress comfortably on the street or many places in Italy, but when traveling Vatican, you should dress very discreetly to respect their customs and habits because the Vatican is holy mosque of Catholicism. The Vatican is considered one of the holiest places in the world. If tourists wear scantily clad, they will not be accepted to visit the Vatican.

If tourists can drive a private vehicle or rent a car to get around Italy, yet Italy's streets are narrow, small and bumpy; many mountain roads are difficult to drive and require experience of drivers. In the south of this country, roads are bad and difficult to drive. If tourists cannot rent a car, they can travel by train, plane or bus. 

Tipping is not a part of Italian culture. So, when coming to hotels, restaurants or shops in Italy, tourists do not have to leave a tip, giving a tip or not depending on tourists. Thus, if tourists satisfy with the service, they should leave a tip.

Italian is proud of their language, so they do not pay much attention to other languages, including English. Tourists can check in at the big hotel, or order food in the large restaurants with English, but if they want to buy street food, affordable stores, ask for directions, or ask any interesting something, they should learn Italian.
