I love badly translated signs. People go to the trouble of having a sign painted without checking with an English speaker.

I spotted this one in S’Agata sui due Golfi, near Sorrento, where I was visiting family.


What fun!


  1. 🤣🤣🤣. Fabulous

    • I love these signs!

  2. Love it

    • It sounds better that way.

  3. Were you game to park there? Or were you just passing by?

    • My niece parked there, but we were there for the expence.

  4. Crazy translation. Love it.

    • I always find this mistranslations a hoot.

  5. One I’ll never forget was actually in Young in New South Wales outside the senior citizens’ building: “Young Senior Citizens”

  6. The English translations of the signs at the Santa Maria Novella parking in Florence are hilarious.

    • I will look for them.

  7. That is a hoot!
