As the saying goes, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do.” For the most part, this is true, and locals do appreciate it when visitors try to adapt to the native culture. But how exactly does one know how things are supposed to be done, especially when you don’t speak the language? Don’t worry though, because it’s nothing that a bit of research and preparation can’t fix.

The Tipping Point to Booking an Italy Tour

What does it take for the stars to align to book a vacation, in this case, an Italy tour? It usually works like this. You carry around the idea in your head for ages. You don’t think about it each and every waking hour. You are reminded to book that Italy tour when you see a photograph of Venice in a magazine while waiting at the dentist office or strolling down the pasta aisle in the supermarket or chance upon a movie set in Italy, like Roman Holiday, with Audrey Hepburn, on the TV one quiet Saturday night.

I am also wondering if this MTV tour of Italy isn’t going to be an [...]
