I should have also told you, if you want the true Italian or Swedish experience, you will also get carbonated mineral water to drink with your meals. I love it, but a lot of people don't. My favorite two flavors are lemon and lime. Do not try to use club soda or tonic water! Although they are less expensive, they have a high salt content and are not as good. Arrowhead makes a pretty good sparkling mineral water. In Sweden, the tourist shops had the water labeled as "gas" and "no gas". Kinda funny!
