Italy. Nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean with miles of gorgeous coastline, when is a better time to enjoy this slower paced gem of Southern Europe? Where locals are expected to arrive to dinners and parties 15 minutes late, the general rush we are so familiar with fades away completely. There simply isn’t anywhere in the world that shares the same feel of light fun, modern romance and ancient culture. While you explore Italy you will cross off your bucket list seeing some of the world’s most iconic images. Including the Colosseum of Ancient Rome, Michelangelo’s David (It’s huge!) and Botticelli’s Venus a must for any art buff or novice. You won’t believe how much the medieval Leaning Tower of Pisa actually leans, it is just one of those architectural feats you have to witness first hand. Or maybe the elegant decay that surrounds the magnificent canals in the city of Venice is more your style. Either way, if you let Italy be somewhere you visit, you will not be disappointed. Grab some Euros (you’ll save a few since tipping food waitstaff, taxi drivers, and bartenders is necessary) and don’t forget to try these Italian food favourites: Capuccino (ordered usually only in the am there), Anitpasto, Pasta, Risotto, Gelato, and Lemon Sgroppino.
