WHY VISIT ITALY
I can start with three nice (clean) jokes on
Italy and the Italians.
- At the beginning of
time God was discussing the creation of world with all Countries and they asked
about Italy: Why did You give to Italy beautiful mountains (Alps), surround
by a blue Sea with marvellous Coasts and Beaches, give it wonderful Lakes with
enchanting landscape, give it gorgeous, unique Villages and Cities with a wealth
of Art and History like Rome, Venice, Florence, Sicily Region ………. God, have
you not been just a bit too generous with Italy? But the Almighty replied.
Not really, I haven’t told you yet that to compensate, I will give Italy
- If you meet three
car drivers: In England they set up a club, in France “a ménage a trois”, in
Italy they create a traffic jam.
- Italians have
only two things on their mind ………The other is spaghetti (Catherine Denevue)
These are jokes, of
course. But, as I see it, the majority of Italians are polite, spontaneous, good
natured and full of life
To be more serious
a UNESCO study states that Italy has more than 60%
of the world’s cultural and artistic heritage. As of this day 41 Italian
monuments or cities are on the UNESCO’s Heritage list of sites, having
outstanding universal value. But I think Italy is worth a visit because it is
beautiful country, the people are so easy on going, the food is delicious
(Eating well means understanding that history, territory and foods
are profoundly interconnected) and every day you will see something
wonderful. The majority of Italians are very agreeable and love tourists.
Tourism is one of the major contributions to the Italian economy.
