Hello. I am planning a trip to Italy for September. I will be visiting Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan. I love to shop and am looking forward to buying some nice Italian clothes for myself. However, I have read in several travel books that the sales people follow you around the store, you cannot pick anything up yourself, and to expect company in the dressing room. I read that if you say you want a dress, they will pick one out for you in your size.
Is this really true? I can't take something off a rack and look at it to pick out what I might like to buy? And someone is going to stand in the dressing room with me while I try something on? I dont want someone to pick something out for me, I want to browse myself!
