As Italians are famous around the world to be the most amazing Latin Lovers, also our language has many nuances to express this amazing feeling.
The first main difference between English and Italian is how we say I LOVE YOU.

One of the main issues when travelling abroad is 'Where can I buy this stuff?". Each country has its own habits regarding the shopping.
Here you can find the Italian ones and our 'Store's names'.
TABACCAIO: this is the store that sells cigarettes and stamps. All these stores also have chewing gums, batteries, and are also stationery shops. In many of these now you can play to the Scratch and Win and other lotteries.
ALIMENTARI: they are little shops where you can find the main foodstuffs. Usually pasta and all different kind of food, cheese, cold cuts and bread.
