Key Italian Words

When we travel we like to do what locals do – that includes – speaking the local language. If you don’t speak the language, we recommend buying a language dictionary or using a language app.

At a minimum, we recommend knowing some key Italian words – courtesy words.

Good Evening Buona serata (bwoh-nuh sair-AH-tah)
