What we are looking is opposite of rude or bizarre. We need to select word which is close of proper manner and urbanity (refined manner) is right choice.

The word "however" indicates a contrast introduced in the ideas in the sentence.

Since the behavior abroad is considered at least harmlessly bizarre or impossibly rude, at home it will be perceived in exactly the opposite way - very polite.

Thus urbanity - which indicates the quality of refinement - is the correct answer.

urbanity means mannerliness, courtesy, politeness, Grace, Polish etc...and would be the best contrast to being rude and eccentric

Some customs---which are they?(rude, harmless, bizarre); now, see the word however which is always used for shift like (negative--however--positive) vice-versa ,Therefore, just put the word opposite of that customs.

How can rude customs travel well?
The contrast should be to customs described as impossibly or extremely or unbelievably or inconceivably rude!

Some customs travel well; often, however, behavior that is considered the epitome of ______ at home is perceived as impossibly rude or, at the least, harmlessly bizarre abroad.

behavior that is considered the epitome of ______ at home is contrasted (however) with behavior which is perceived as impossibly rude abroad

So clearly the word for the blank should be the opposite of impossibly rude which is very polite.

The choice from the word list is urbanity

Note: The following are verbiage or fluff and meant to function as distractors.

Some customs travel well

or, at the least, harmlessly bizarre abroad.
