Cash vs Card, Tipping

While major credit cards like Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted, smaller establishments may prefer cash payments. It's a good idea to have a mix of both cash and cards, especially when exploring different regions in Italy.

ATMs, known as "bancomat" in Italian, are readily available in cities, towns, and tourist areas. They are usually found in banks, at post offices, and in commercial areas. However, in rural or remote areas, the availability of ATMs might be more limited, so it's advisable to carry sufficient cash in such situations.

Tipping is not obligatory or expected as much as in some other countries. However, rounding up the bill or leaving a small tip, especially in restaurants or cafes where service charge isn't included, is appreciated. It's common to round up the total or leave about 5-10% of the bill as a gesture of appreciation for good service.
