In this episode, we cover how to tell the time in Italian. Note that in Italy the 24-hour clock, or military time, is very common and used at museums, supermarkets, train stations, etc… For this reason, it’s a good idea to learn how it works.

Two Main Takeaways

  • In Italian, to ask about the time we have two options: “Che ora è?” and “Che ore sono?”.
  • If we choose not to use the 24-hour clock, we can add: “del mattino”, “del pomeriggio”, “della sera”, and “della notte”.
