I don't know a single person who has been to Italy and hasn't fallen in love with it. This is true of my parents, many of my friends, co-workers and, yes, myself. The culture is inviting, exciting and relaxing. There is passion among the Italians such that you'd be hard pressed to find its equal anywhere else. Even if, for some reason, the culture isn't for you, the sights, sounds and tastes sure will be.

The food is incredible. Before you go to Italy, don't eat much for about a week. When you get to Italy, you will find yourself wanting to eat all the time, even if you aren't hungry, because everything is so good. I would often have dessert in the middle of the day. Go for some gelato or something you've never heard of from a nearby bakery. When you go to restaurants, ask what the local favorites are.

Planning Your Stay

A decent vacation to take is one that lasts about a week. If you have that time, or more, you might want to look into renting a villa. It's kind of like immersing yourself in the culture. You'll relax more quickly and stay that way longer. In addition, you won't feel the need to rush in and out all the time because the villa will be an essential part of your stay.

If you have a week or longer you'll want to visit some of the neighboring towns and cities. For wine fans, you aren't far from the region of Chianti. Yes, there is a reason that some red wines are called Chianti. Take a tour of local vineyards. Do some wine tastings. Just make sure you have a safe way to get back to your gorgeous villa.
