Are Europeans Rude to American Travelers?

Are Tourists No Longer Welcome in Europe?

are europeans rudeI am a semi-regular guest on the Scott Thompson radio program in Hamilton, Ontario.   In between interviews on the eclipse and Jerry Lewis, Scott spoke with me on-air about stories he heard about tourists no longer being welcome in Europe such as this one.  He also had some anecdotal stories of being treated rudely in Italy.  We had about 10 minutes to talk on air and afterwards, my website lit up like a Christmas tree.  See my comments on tourists being treated rudely or not being welcome in Europe.
