Tabacchi Shop – You Will Probably Need One in Italy

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.
