Why Go to Italy?
Ten Good Reasons To go to Italy.
Purpose One: For The Food. To Eat Genuine Italian Meals.
It doesn’t matter if you can only afford a pizza or a simple bowl of pasta you will virtually definitely be served a meal that has been prepared with skill.
The pizzas are normally baked in a wooden burning stove and there is nothing better than an authentic Italian pizza Margherita when you’re hungry ( the Margherita is named after an Italian queen and its colours are red, white and inexperienced like the Italian flag. Red is the the tomatoes, white (is the pizza dough) and inexperienced ( is the basil topping).
Italian pasta cooked completely and al dente (firm ‘ to the tooth’) in a tasty sauce sprinkled with the fantastic cheese made solely in Parma, Italy .. Parmesan or Parmigiano Reggiano to give it its Italian name.
Cause Two: For The Wine to drink Italian wine in Italy.
As great as Italian wines are at house; for some motive they always style better once you drink them in the nation that they have been created in.
Cause Three: To Eat Actual Italian Ice Cream.
The variety of flavours will leave you spoilt for choice; we often must ask them to serve another person while we decide which flavour might be our favourite that day.
Crema, peach, lemon, strawberry, pistachio, coffee, chocolate, chocolate and nut,Nutella, pineapple, spagnola, tutti frutti, fruit of the forest, mango.
Not forgetting- trifle charmingly named Zuppa Inglese and right here I’ll translate it from the Italian into English as I have been instructed it, it is named oup of the English
There are lots of extra varieties/flavours than I can record right here.
Italian Ice Cream is Wonderful

Italian towns and cities are interesting to explore.
Purpose Four: The Cities in Milan I was presented with a cappuccino with a perfectly formed chocolate (powder) coronary heart resting on its froth, this was produced with a flourish and no stencil was used. Please see my Italian espresso page for more about this ‘artwork’.
Reason Six: Magnificence.. Italy is an exquisite nation to visit.
The landscape, the weather, the nice style and magnificence that the Italians live by.
Motive Seven: The Retailers.
This doesn’t want much of an explanation; even simply window purchasing is a pleasure there. The quality of the shows in windows is wonderful. The window shows range from a show of hats so magnificient you will think that you’ve got stepped again in time to essentially the most modern of designer sneakers, clothes and bags in streets dedicated to famous designer names such as Prada and Jimmy Choo. There is a shop with leather-based gloves in all of the colours of the rainbow on sale in a store near the Spanish steps in Rome.
I can spend ours simply trying in shop windows in Italy… I not often buy anything as a result of if the restrictions on luggage; we travel gentle.
For the most implausible display of chocolate visit Turin at Easter and see chocolate making turned into tempting master pieces.
Cause Eight: The life-style… families matter.
This is all the time pleasure to witness Italians are nonetheless largely excellent at getting together as families. Everybody might be included in a meal out at a restaurant from great grandma to the most recent arrival. All of them share a love of fine meals and company. They benefit from the camaraderie of dining together and of meeting outdated friends and stopping to speak when out and about walking or cycling within the town, In Summer time the retired folks sit in parks within the shade of bushes and go the time of day together.
Reason 9: The Individuals.
Watching the Italians go about their daily life with an air of gracefulness. Ladies trip their bikes elegantly it doesn’t matter what they’re carrying and procuring isn’t any drawback as it is put it in the basket on the front of the bicycle. Even within the heat of the summer season in the town the women and men of Italian cities look unruffled and elegant.
Motive Ten: The Native Markets.
The Italians love a very good market, it’s a gathering place and a hub of activity. The Italian ladies will kind by means of a pile of clothes heaped on a stall. Abruptly she manages to drag out from the tangle of clothes a dress or skirt that looks unpromising. Then holding it up towards herself she will decide if it is appropriate; if they’re lucky there’s a mirror to look in. Then like magic you all of the sudden realise how nicely it does fits them; it is perfect for them size,model and worth.
The fruit stalls are piled high with probably the most colourful and recent fruit and vegetables, so effectively arranged they may very well be in a painting. The local markets are all barely different they may be set in close proximity to historic buildings however when the market is in town it takes centre stage.
Italian’s take great pleasure and care in the way they present their meals.
Artisitc tiled pictures, adverts on retailers..
Italy is a fascinating place to visit every city appears to have something special ready to be found. The regional attitude to cooking ensures that every area you visit may have their own meals specialties to tempt you.
The family life type of Italians is a pleasure to witness once they get together to get pleasure from a meal and seated around the table shall be members of the family from the youngest child to the nonna (grandma). There is usually much dialog and laughter at such gatherings.
We have fond reminiscences of once we traveled in Italy with our youngsters and Italian ladies would cease us in the street to tell us how stunning our children had been.

Thank you, I must agree I have by no means tasted ice cream as tempting as an Italian gelato and the selection of various flavors is incredible. I really like the way Italians take a delight in getting ready the food they make even a primary meal could be special. I like the best way the pizzas are cooked in the wooden burning ovens the flavor is so way more intense and the pizza base is healthier when cooked that method. I have relatives by way of marriage which might be Italian and watching them cook has made me a better cook.
