Don't leave for Italy without this book!
Traveling to Italy is a dream of many. The country is beautiful, the people are warm and vibrant, and don't even get me started on the cuisine!
As exciting as Italy is, it can be intimidating for those who have never spent a significant amount of time there. There are different customs to master, different foods to try, and just a different way of doing things in general. As Americans living over 5,000 miles and an ocean away, Italy can seem like a totally different world!
Luckily, you have someone on the inside who can tell you the 55 most important things you need to know before you go. With five years of experience being an American in Italy, I can tell you how to avoid misunderstandings, mistakes, and embarrassment, as well as correct some of the misconceptions we have about Italy based on our television shows and movies. You don't have to make any "foreigner faux pas" because I've already made them all for you!
How to Be an American in Italy is a friendly, authoritative guide written by an American for other Americans who are visiting or moving to Italy. It will help you fit into your new Italian life without losing your American spirit, and it will give you the confidence to live that new life to the fullest.
