Very useful content

I've had to listen to it several times to pick up a decent amount of the content, one run through definitely wasn't enough for me to remember everything, so not really Italian in an hour. On that basis the chatting / jokes get a bit irritating after the first time you hear them, but the set up is otherwise fine. Very useful phrases and content for a short trip / holiday.
