I'm wondering if service charge or tipping is already included in the bill? Do I need to tip the private car transfer? Waitors? Bell hop? I guess just in general because I know every country has their own policy.

Thank You,

There is no need to tip for anything in Italy. Nobody has to rely on tips to make a living. It is customary to round up taxi fares and restaurant bills to a convenient amount.

Or round down. :)

My one and only taxi ride in Italy, the driver insisted to round down. :)
