    in Italy tip is used not everywhere, depends a lot to the kind of the place.
    btw the range of the tip is about 5-15% of the total bill.
    for example in a bar, after a "caffè espresso" (remember that in italy if u ask for a coffee you will have always an espresso) someone leave 10 cents on the bar (an espresso cost 70 cents / 1 €)
    in a restaurant with a bill of 60 € for 2, you can give 5-10 € of tip.
    Of course younger people often avoid tip, and none feel obliged to do it.
