2.3 Perfect Tourist - Indefinite Articles

In this lesson, the list of places all happen to be masculine plural to the word "degli" applies perfectly:

una lista degli alberghi, ristoranti, musei, e monumenti famosi.

But what if one of the items happened to be feminine plural, for example what if we added churches to the list. What would the sentence look like then?

Credo che si dice "una lista delle chiese"

Thanks for the post but the question is about a mixed list composed of both masculine and feminine items.

Ciao Michelino,

I apologize for the delay in my reply.
"A list of churches" in Italian can be translated as "una lista delle chiese".
If you have a mix of feminine and masculine plural nouns, you could write the noun only or specify the preposition with the article before the noun. (degli, dei , dell...)
For example:
"una lista degli alberghi, ristoranti, musei, e chiese" or "una lista degli alberghi, dei ristoranti,dei musei e delle chiese.
I hope this helps

Buon divertimento!!!
