Italy in a week


At the end of 2018, we went on a family trip in Italy. In a week and a half, we went to Rome, Naples, Sorrento, Florence and Milan. To my surprise, it was much more relaxing than I expected.

I’ve been to Rome before, and had the impression that Italian dining culture was very different from what I’m used to. Sometimes I walk into a restaurant and no one would come to show me where to sit. Before this trip though, I asked my Italian friend. It turns out that you can just walk to an empty table in that case. China has the same culture and I remembered how strange it was to wait for a table when I first arrived in America.

It’s kind of like a reversed culture shock that I’m more used to the US/UK culture…
