Italy is a very old country.. well actually it isn’t! It is younger than the United States. The Kingdom of Italy was formed in 1861 and the republic in 1946
However the cultures and history and people behind it stretch back much further. When discussing Art, coffee, wine, food, religion or football, or if in the Hollywood.. mafia, Italy is bound to be on someone’s lips. Italy is really a must go destination of Western Europe.
My first trip was to Rome many years later my next was to Bologna.
