Another way to say 'please'

Lesson 8.4 Roberto asked "Per andare in Corso Marconi, per cortesia? Translation is "How to get to Corso Marconi, please." Does "per cortesia" relate to the italian word for courtesy, therefore he asked can you etc , with courtesy (per cortesia) or am I trying for too literal a translation?

Hi Bob, "per cortesia" is one of the few ways to say "please". "Per favore" is another one too. I would suggest to avoid the literal translation. I hope this helps. Ciao
