Why Do I Love Italy?

There are so many reasons to love Italy. So many Americans (Italians and others) love going to Italy. What is our attraction? Why do we long for this small country? Here are some of my many reasons for loving Italy:

  1. The country side is very beautiful
  2. The people are friendly
  3. Italians love Americans
  4. The food is fantastic (and you can’t get it outside of Italy – it just isn’t the same)
  5. The wine is superb
  6. The chocolate is unforgettable
  7. The gelato is soooo much better than ice cream
  8. The cities are old (ancient) and the architecture is fantastic
  9. Each small town has its own appeal
  10. The autostradas are fast, wide and make driving enjoyable
  11. The trains work and  are very fast
  12. Italians believe in “Dolce fa niente”!

If you haven’t gone yet, GO! (or as the Italians would say VAI VAI). Life is too short to miss Italy.

  1. I doubt Italy can be called “small country”. Its 10th in Europe by area and 6th in population, and its a member of the G8. Small compared to USA – maybe. A small country – not really.

    • Yes you are right I was looking more at a world size. But it is also small in its way of keeping tradition. It doesn’t wZnt go be the largest. Italy is perfect. I own a house there and go as often as I can. I also run yours there.
