What Makes Italy Special & Unique?

What makes Italy so special? A very difficult question, so much is extraordinarily good and unique to Italy.

Undaunted by trying to do the impossible, Andrew (my husband) and I have set ourselves the challenging task of discovering the best things about Italy.

Whether it's a special town or village, a great beach or a type of pasta we have put together various lists. They feature just a few of the things we love most about Italy, click on the links further down the page to view the lists.

Andrew and I know the north of Italy better than the south so I am sure we've missed a bit. Please do let us know if we have and/or share whatever it is that makes Italy special for you. Simply do so via the Facebook comments at the bottom of the page.

If you would like to know more about a particular place featured on any of our lists then please feel free to contact me, Maria.

Hope you enjoy the lists...
