Italy's Treasures

Ah, Bella Italia, how do I love thee?  Let me count the ways: Rome, the Eternal City with its Coliseum, Forum, Pantheon, and the Vatican; Florence, my personal favorite, home of the Medicis and Cradle of the Renaissance; Venice with Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge; Naples, Sicily, and the South.  I love Italy any time of year.  In spring, the almond blossoms are in bloom; artichokes appear on every menu; and there is smoke in the country air from the burning of vineyard trimmings. In summer, it’s hot and the Lidos beckon; and in fall, the best time of all; the tourists are mostly gone; the kids are in school; and the cities are at your feet.  Here are a few reasons to bring the soul of Italy back home.
