August 28, 2017 Pritam Majumdar 3Comment

We’ve often heard the saying “when in Rome, do what the Romans do”. But how would we know what Romans do unless we’ve seen them do one thing or the other. Hmmmm…..that’s a thought that bothers me, does it bother you too?  Robert Browning had written, “Open my heart and you will see Graved inside of it, “Italy”” and Percy Bysshe Shelley says,“Thou Paradise of exiles, Italy!” Well, keeping these words in mind, let us take a look at why Italy is being praised so much shall we?

Despite of Italy being a city for the foodies who crave for the world’s most excellent pizzas, pastas and wines; Italy is not just that but is much more. Although the food and wine in this exquisite boot-shaped nation, is one of the reasons to why you should visit Italy; however, the historic cities & towns, snow-covered mountains, majestic hill & vales, unspoiled coastlines and several museums constitute the other and a more profound reason to visit Italy.

Why Italy?

There are plenty of reasons to visit Italy, a few of them are as follows:

Romance with Venice
