Incredible Italy

When oh when will I get to Italy? The exotic country of love, filled with cultural and artistic attractions, Italy is a dream destination for travellers from all over the world and I am included. If there's one place I have to visit before life gets too hectic for me to enjoy the luxury of travel, Italy is my number one choice! Smiley

In order to truly enjoy the beauty and wonder of Italy, I would need at least a week. My main vacation spots would of course include Rome, which is the capital of Italy and romantic Venice. With my darling right alongside me, I do believe this would be the ultimate romantic vacation for us as a couple. Smiley

Romantic Venice

My buddy Emila just got back for her unforgettable Italy vacation. Well it was a business and pleasure kind of trip but I have no doubt that she truly enjoyed her stay. She's been so kind as to share her pictures with me and these are some of the attractions she visited and captured on her trip. Thanks a million Emila, love ya!

Rome - Collosseo, one of the greatest works of Roman architecture

Fontana de Trevi in Rome

Streets of Rome

Vatican City

After reading her posts and viewing her beautiful shots, all I can say is that Incredible is the best word to truly express the beauty and glory of Italy. If you need transportation to greet you at the airport, there's always Rome Car Hire or Turin Car Hire. Depending on where you land, don't forget to book proper airport transfer to get you get into the city and settled in your hotel before you embark on the most magical adventure of your life!

With beautiful scenery, warm friendly people, amazing sight-seeing spots not to mention delectable food, everything Italy promises a romantic magical vacation you will never forget. By the way, I love Italian food and it would be a dream come true for me to one day visit Italy and savour true authentic Italian cuisine at its best. Smiley

Dining al-fresco is always a pleasure

Gift shopping in Venice

Souvenir from Italy

Before I sign off, I'd like to share some Italy fun facts with you. How many of these did you already know?

The piano hails from Italy.
Cologne came from Italy.
Eyeglasses are an Italian invention.
The espresso machine hails from Italy.
Pasta is Italy's national dish.
Rome's nickname is "The Eternal City."

Russian woman Maria,  April 30, 2010 3:42 PM

Unfortunately I have never been in Italy, but I want it badly! And after reading your article I want it even more. The photos are really wonderful, it becomes obvious that Rome is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There are so many sightseeing there, I can just imagine what a person feel in this country for the first time. To visit Italy is my dream! I hope that we will manage to go there together. Do you agree? 8-)

Cashmere,  April 30, 2010 5:14 PM

I wanna go Italy too...
And we better go Venice fast cos they say that Venice is going to be drowned in a few years time due to the climate.

Roxy's Best Of...,  April 30, 2010 8:50 PM

Wow, lucky Emila... what beautiful photos! I bet she had the time of her life.

Sorry to miss your the time it got started I was either sleeping or out at client meetings all day. I just took on your competitor in a new BOTB, please stop by and vote if you have time.

Headed into the weekend here, the weather has really warmed up... 80 degrees today, 90 tomorrow for London and Maddie's softball games.

Happy Friday and weekend to you!

Roxy :) ;)

hi Mariuca, here's the guide for blog idol... You only have to submit 10 song entries....One song per song category....
For example... Motown = I'll be there by Jackson five...
same thing goes with the other categories

bluedreamer27,  May 01, 2010 8:47 AM

if you said "Taken songs" it means the song was submitted already by a blogger...

bluedreamer27,  May 01, 2010 8:50 AM

i listed down all the Submitted entries in my blog so that you have your guide whether the song is taken or not..

bluedreamer27,  May 01, 2010 8:53 AM
