THE PHONE BOOK

Information is not always where you might expect it to be in the Italian phone book. For example, Bologna's city offices are not listed under �B� for Bologna but under �C� for COMUNE DI BOLOGNA. Read the table of contents in the front of the yellow pages or try searching online at www.paginegialle.it. You can also consult the English yellow pages www.intoitaly.it, however Bologna listings are limited.

TUTTO CITT�

Tutto Citt�, a booklet containing detailed maps of the city, is provided by the phone company. Tutto Citt� is also available online at www.tuttocitta.it. Here you can map driving and pedestrian routes in almost any Italian city.

A few weeks before Easter, don�t be surprised when the parish priest comes knocking to bless your house. A holiday tradition, he�ll come in and chat for a moment, say a prayer and sprinkle some holy water around before leaving. Some people give the priest a small donation for his trouble. It is acceptable to decline if you want. Simply say, �no grazie.�
