  1. It’s quite different, what you described is more or less about Rome, I’ve been living in Milan, train buses we’re on time, shops open at 8:00am, north is completely different from the south of Italy,, more north more well served, people more cold.. I’m in Rome now, and in love with this city! People are cool

  2. It’s Weird That I’m Lebanees And I Have A Italian Passport!!
    And If U Think That Beautiful Womens/Girls Are Awesome Trust Me, It’s Gross To Me lol

  3. onestly if you want a more relaxing vacation i recomand you to visit the nord part of italy, like Trentino, Piemonte, Valle D’Aosta, it’s cold maybe but you nerver regret if you are safe from TERRONI (sud people: rude, dirty, criminal)

  4. great video man. but trains are not on time my dear man. they just do whatever they want. if they want they leave on time. but if they don’t you don’t even know if you are going to take a train the day you planned you were going to. they can have up to 300 minutes of delay

  5. james rippingale your a delusional ignoramus .. all americans are shocked the rest of the world isnt exactly like america (yes no american will be content until there’s starbucks/mcdonalds on every corner) ..maybe we could put your obnoxious generalization on the statue of liberty ‘assimilate or go fuck yourselves’

  6. Ma guarda in milano dove vivevo io non cera gente gridando come sciemi, solo si parlava normalmente.

  7. spaghetti with meatballs actually exist it is an abruzzese recipe (“spaghitt nghe li palluttin”)

  8. I’m Italian and you are great! I appreciate your video sooo much! thankyou for your realistic description . hugs from Salerno 🙂

  9. many details about italians are exaggerated in this video, but we are relatively loud and we drive like shit but it’s all good. Also restaurants in the centre are three times as expensive as smaller less known restaurants, keep that in mind

  10. Man, Luini in Milan is awful, trust me. You go to bari to grab your panzerotto, and there you can get pasta (orecchiette, not spaghetti) with meatballs, very very very very very small ones.
    I like your videos, this is a simple advice. And while you’re there, you might want to try cavatelli, strascinati con cime di rapa, riso con patate al forno and a couple dozens other things 😀

  11. Man, just one little more thing: southern Italy is as rich in culture and arts (and museums) as northern Italy. Actually civilization there is way more ancient than in the north. Some conditions you speak of about the south are actually resulting (so sadly, even after 150 years) from the invasion of the kingdom of Naples by Savoia, Garibaldi and his murderous helpers. But not many know these things, even here.

  12. I’m atheists, I don’t care about fashion and neither about calcio wow I’m starting to ask myself if I’m actually Italian or not lol

  13. If you will ever go to Naples, visit the churches, you don’t have to be a believer (is it the right word?). However, they are light museums, you will find many pictures and especially marbe pieces (gothic, baroque and even renaissance)… sorry for the selfpromotion of my city, but this things are not always known
