Isn't that a huge part of why anyone visits Italy? Meeting Italians is relatively easy. In fact, it's very easy and their hospitality is very warm. Going beyond the superficial interactions with Italians requires a few things, one being time, which the visitor doesn't always have and, or common purpose. By this latter, if you like to hike and want to join a group of Italian hikers, the opportunity to hike, talk, exchange and befriend shoot up considerably. Ring My Bell can make this happen.
