Ciao Bella!

“You may have the universe if I may have Italy.”

-Giuseppe Verdi

Ah, la dolce vita…for me! I just can’t help it! I’m passionate about Italy and all things Italian! What is it? Yes, I’m Italian and I was raised in an Italian family, but there’s more to it…the love of family, the love of beauty, the love of life…Italians know how to live!

The food, the fashion, the music, the language, the people, the art, the history, the cinema,  la bella figura …stylish, sensual, romantic, delicious, dramatic…passionate! I love it! I miss it! I just got back and I’m already homesick for it!

Michelangelo’s Masterpiece – Divine David!

So, andiamo! Let’s go…

Did you join me on my month-long journey through  Italia?   Test tasting gelato (tough duty, but someone has to do it!); unmasking Venice; wine tasting (everywhere!); mangia!mangia!mangia! (testing out my spandex!);  checking out la bella figura (both genders!); do they still pinch?; exposing David (sigh!)…and much, much, much more!

Check out my “real time” blogs and many of the 2500 photos I took.

Coming soon…tips and suggestions for your next trip to Italy!
