♥All my posts about this beautiful country ♥
I absolutely adore Italy. I mean what isn’t there to love? The cities, the countryside, the history, the people, the food….as I say a country to fall in love with over and over again.
I have visited numerous times and it will always remain one of my favourite destinations. I love the cities particularly Rome and Venice. This year I visited Milan properly for the first time. Despite a second visit to Verona (in 2008 there was a torrential downpour as we arrived) we stood at the train station again in…yes…a torrential downpour!! Is this one city I am never destined to see? Everyone tells me how beautiful it is…and not to go when they are!
I also love the Amalfi Coast. Such a breathtakingly beautiful part of the world.
And who can resist a visit to Pompeii!
It has 51 UNESCO World Heritage Sites….51! With the highest number of cultural sites in the world (47) – you literally cant go without ending up at at least one site!!
So far I have visited only 8! That’s 43 more reasons to go back again!
In no particular order here are my posts. Enjoy!
