Non-EU citizens who spend at least €155 in the same shop on the same day can claim back the IVA which is taxed at 20%. If this applies to you ask the assistant in the shop for a receipt with a description of the items purchased and a “tax free cheque”. This should be handed in at the airport when leaving the EU (no more than 90 days later). For more information see www.globalrefund.com.
