Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Siena

Guests staying at Siena hotels can easily fit in with the locals through an understanding of local customs and etiquette. To help make your stay more comfortable, take a look at these useful tips from Hotels.com. The main language spoken in Siena is Italian; therefore, it's essential to pack your translation book and memorise some everyday phrases. It is usual when talking to strangers to address them according to their honorary name rather than their first name. Even if you have spoken to a person on several occasions, refrain from using their first name unless invited to do so. When greeting an Italian, remember to shake hands. If you are greeting a female, allow her to offer you her hand first. A kiss on each cheek is a continental greeting custom, which is shared amongst close associates, friends and family. If you're planning to dine out, remember to find out whether your chosen restaurant has a particular dress code - otherwise you may be turned away. If you order fruit, use a knife and fork rather than your fingers (unless its grapes or cherries).
