Found this article on how not to look like the typical clueless American tourist. Some of the tips are actually quite good and will help you blend or at the very least not stand out too much.
I have traveled to a few foreign countries and there are always a few dick head tourists that give Americans a bad name, so when it Rome at least respect the Roman culture. Check the loud and boisterous "I'm entitled because I am an American" BS at door because it makes us look bad and at the very worst could make you a target.
Be respectful and polite, the tip about learning few phrases like "please" and "thank you" in the native tongue make a lot of sense. It shows you respect the culture enough to make an attempt at it even if your accent or pronunciation is not 100% correct.
