SNAP EASY TIP: In Italy you will want to familiarize yourself with the local Tabacchi Shops. Pronounced ta-BAK-ee. These shops display a sign with a big white “T” on a dark blue or black background. It is like a very small local convenience store that sells everything from newspapers, bus tickets, metro tickets, phone cards to postage stamps. You can also get a drink or small snack here if you want. They are all over Italy.
