It’s almost impossible not to fall in love with Italy when its capital is a city as beautiful as Rome. But, Rome is not the only reason to fall in love with Italy. It’s not difficult for a country like Italy to steal your heart – the Italian way of life, its regional food, stunning vistas and so much more will leave you innamorata, enchanted by this unique country!
The one thing people are always worried about while travelling is “food”. But, you don’t have to worry about it while travelling to Italy. Italian cuisine is out of this world, not only it will satisfy your taste buds but, it will leave you in an awe. Traditional pizzas or pasta, or calzones as big as the size of your head. Each and every food is made with Italian perfection.
Living the Italian way
Italian way of living is enough to make you fall in love with Italy. Italians love their families, their love for Italian food, Italian music, and Italian traditions is so overwhelming. Basically, Italians are attached with their customs and they love their lifestyle as they know very well how to live a balanced life.
When you visit any Italian restaurant, you’re not only greeted by waiters with a warm smile and a menu. They present their own house wine to you to preserve their tradition.
Gelato is the signature ice cream of Italy and calling it an “ice cream” is a sin because gelato is not one of your regular ice creams. From decadent chocolate flavour to unique charcoal flavour gelato; everything is just perfection.
Italy is beautiful in its own way, every Italian city is built in such a manner that it leaves you in awe. Venice had the picturesque canals; Florence possessed incredible structures dating back centuries; Cinque Terre was home to a collection of the most colorful houses I’ve ever seen.
The beautiful bridges really took my heart. Looking at the sunset at the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, or quaint bridges spanning Venetian canals, each was beautiful in its own way.
Leonardo De Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo. Do we need to say more? Italy is the house of exquisite paintings and art. You can look at the artwork for hours and still stay awestruck for the whole day. To experience the world’s greatest masterpieces, explore Florence for a visit to the Uffizi Gallery, the statue of David, and the Duomo.
Beautiful Train Journeys
If you’re travelling through countryside make sure you make a train journey. While, train journeys of Italy are all beautiful, but undoubtedly the most impressive crosses through both Italy and Switzerland – the Bernina Express.
If you visit Italy but you don’t visit Tuscany then you miss on a lot of romance. Tuscany is certainly one of the world’s most romantic regions to visit. The list of what makes Tuscany so romantic is endless such as wineries, Tuscan villas, rolling hills etc.
The gondola ride on Venetian canals is something which should be on your to-do list. While you plan on doing this be prepared to get lost in the beauty of Venetian canals.
