Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours you will frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your tour-leaders and guides will always be able to advise you accordingly.  

In the churches and monasteries please dress respectfully. This may mean long trousers for men and skirts for women.  Ladies should also cover their shoulders. 

Language & Religion 

In Italy, the official language is Italian, spoken by approximately 93% of the population, however there are a number of local and regional dialects that some linguists would consider to be separate languages. Evolved from Latin, Italian has a long and celebrated history and is considered one of the most romantic languages in the world. 

Home to the Pope who resides in the heart of Rome in Vatican City, Italy is considered the cradle of Catholicism. Italy is now a secular state and many religions are now present across the country, however Roman Catholicism is still the prominent religion within the population and plays an important role in Italian culture.
