Wow! now that I went to Italy in April, I can say that it is rich in culture, People dress really well, food is amazing and not to forget COFFEE! mumm... With all these medieval cities and towns, it is like a through back in time... I am so passionate about history, I was blown away visiting a castle dating of 1350! The Cinque Terre near La Spezia was very interesting. five small villages connected by a path for 20 km. We stayed at Riomaggiore.
