Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Modena

Many of the most popular local attractions are within walking distance of the city centre, including historical sites and shopping streets, so a sturdy and comfortable pair of walking shoes is advised. The Summer months last from June to August, and temperatures usually rise to around 31°C. Carrying a backpack would be ideal as you can store bottled water for when the afternoon sun becomes too intense. Although many of the locals will speak English, and Italian people can be very welcoming, either learning a few simple Italian phrases or carrying a phrase book will go a long way. When communicating with the locals, be sure that you do not take their way of speaking as annoyance or anger, Italians are simply animated when they speak. The Hotels.com website offers a virtual tour of the area around your hotel, so you can begin planning your holiday in advance.
