Items made of leather and fur are very popular on the local markets. Here you can find clothing by local manufacturers, and by famous Italian firms. Do not forget to bargain with vendors. Sometimes this helps reduce the final price by 15 - 20%.
Items made of silver, as well as traditional clothes and handmade tableware are the most popular souvenirs that travelers get in the memory of trip. If various handicrafts and souvenirs are best to buy in a market, jewelry should be purchased in specialized shops only.
Lunch is considered the most important meal for locals. As a rule, it consists of 4 - 5 meals. As for wine, there is a very interesting tradition. If the name of the month contains the letter "p", red wine is traditionally ordered in addition to food. Otherwise white wine is considered more suitable.
Do not forget to leave tips in restaurants and cafes of the city. The size of tips is around 5 - 10% of the total order. Leaving money on table is considered impolite. It's better to round the amount of your bill to any convenient sum in a big way.
When communicating with locals, it is worth considering that some of their gestures have quite a different meaning from the commonly accepted one in most European countries. Thus, a nod here means "no" and shaking head from side to side means "yes."
