If I were able to go anywhere in the world I could dream of I would choose Italy! Why? I will tell you why and who I would bring with me. Italy is so full of culture and beauty, who wouldn’t want to go there? The landmarks, the beaches, the vineyards! Around every corner there is something new and fascinating to discover, amazing people to meet, and delicious wines and foods to taste!

For history geeks like me, just the history of Italy is interesting enough to make me want to spend months there travelling, learning, and soaking in every moment! Italy’s Roman Empire was one of the greatest the world has ever seen and made immeasurable contributions to humanity to this day. Without Italy who knows what the world would be like to date. What person wouldn’t want to go where it all started? (We can forgive them for World War II). Italy has everything a girl could ask for –  Fascinating history, beautiful scenery, beautiful people, amazing wines and foods, and unbelievable works of art!

Italy’s art and architecture in its self is so mesmerizing. I would kill to go see the Vatican City, Colosseum, and Leaning Tower of Pisa! Just being able to say you saw Michelangelo’s ‘David’ or got to travel Leonardo da Vinci’s home town!! How incredible would that be?!  So many extraordinary works of art came from Italy and to be able to see it all would be an honor and a blessing!

Not only is Italy full of history but a beautiful beautiful place! I would love to take a ride in a gondola in the Grand Vanal! Even the beaches are beyond breath taking! La Pelosa, Rabbit beach, or even Cala Mariolu! I would love to spend a few days soaking up the sun with my friends! The vineyards look wonderful as well.  Some of the finest wines come from Italy so being able to go see how they are created would be such a treat!

Italy is not a place to conquer alone, though. Having a few friends to be there and experience every moment with me is the only way to travel! I don’t think travelling with friends would be a problem at all; I have traveled with them before and had a blast! My friends and I get along really well and we would be too busy seeing the sights, learning Italian, and trying every single Italian dish we can get our hands on (in this case it is completely OK to pig out we will be in Italy after all it would be rude not too!). Italy would sincerely be a dream vacation come true!
