Italian Language Lessons: Clean Talk - Getting your Laundry Done

Steve Cohen

If you travel slowly in Italy, you will eventually need to do laundry. Your tourist rental may have laundry facilities; if so, you may choose to spend part of a quiet day doing laundry. However, another option is possible: you may leave your clothes at a full service laundry and pick them up when ready a day or two later.
