The Italians have been at the centre of European - and world - history for thousands of years. The influence of the Roman Empire can still be felt very strongly today in many parts of Europe, the Middle East and Africa - in architecture, language and customs.
But, you can only experience the true legacy of the Romans and other ancient people of Italy by visiting the country itself. It's not just ancient history either, the Renaissance was an Italian thing too.
Who can deny the grandeur of Rome, Florence, Bologna and Venice? (just to mention a few!) From the Colosseum to The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, there are so many historic gems to be discovered. There are many interesting differences between cities in different parts of the country too, so wherever you travel you will find something exciting. If you've already been to Italy, well, you know exactly what I am talking about!
As already mentioned, hot (pun intended) topic ahead! I even talk about it on my FAQ page, where explain why our never mention food in our blog (unless it's Italian food of course).

Many of our most famous creations have been adopted by almost every other country in the world, not to mention that Italian restaurants are basically in every corner of the world.
There is something about the quality of light in Italy that makes everything look absolutely beautiful.
