The Italian Way
It’s all about the style, food, history and wine when traveling in Italy. I recently had the opportunity to visit a few different places during my holiday and with having limited time, I’m giving you a broad perspective of my assumptions and observations about Italy. FIRST. DISCLAIMER. I am giving my account of my trip. Not a guide in any way mainly due to this being just my first time in the country. I decided to be open and just experience something new. After leaving France and immediately going into Milan, I definitely noticed the change in attitude toward foreign tourist. Milan, Florence, Venice and Rome were the stops each one surprising me in a special way. My least favorite was Milan. Florence is really cute, Venice is alluring and Rome just gives you this good history lesson in real life. Here are a few shots I took.
I would definitely do all of the touristy things in Italy if it were your first trip there. When in Rome you have the Colosseum, Sistine Chapel and more. In Venice you have the mysterious yet charming city surrounded with streets of water, this city makes you want to take a history lesson. In Florence you have STEAK, Chianti! and cute streets with cute Trattorias’ to bring authenticity to any meal. Milan is the Fashion Capital of the world so of course shopping was the number one touristy thing to do. The thing is… I don’t think Milan likes tourist. Non Italian visitors. That’s just a vibe I got from the city.
Italy is everything you Google and more. Here are a few of my takeaways: 1) Italians are very proud of their culture and history 2) Make sure you indulge in the vast variety of vinho! 3) Get on the eating schedule that is common in Italy. You will eat a lot so do it like an Italian. 4) There is plenty of shopping! Don’t hurt yourself 5) each place you visit has something magical to offer so make sure you experience Italy with an open mind 6) EAT GELATO!
This is a glimpse of my travels to Italy. Each place is packed with history, culture, specialized food and wine and your goal should be to experience as much of it as you can while here. If you have any specific questions about where to stay or anything else, drop me a line below!
