    Why Do Tourists Go To Italy

    I was wondering what is so special about Italy that a lot of people prefer to go there. One thing about Italy which i know is the wonderful city of Venice that is built on river with boats as houses and places to live for the residents of Venice.

    What are the other places worth visiting in Italy that compel the tourists to go to Italy and what would be a good weather to go in Italy. If one go to Italy with family and kids what places and attractions should be on the top of list where families should go to enjoy.

    Turin is a also another big city and it is in Northern side of Italy. In Turin you can enjoy wonderful weather if you go to Italy in summer as it has Alps Mountains. In Winter

    Because it is beautiful, the weather is great and the food and wine are second to none. My favourite place in Italy is the island of Capri, but boy is it ever expensive! Me and my partner paid £30.00 for burger and chips each and one small beer each, and that was back in 2007!

    I also spent a lovely week in a villa near Sienna, which was stunning. We went to Florence and to Piza for day trips. IMHO the Leaning Tower of Piza is definitely overated.

    I would love to go to Venice and Rome - they are both on my city hit list. But my favourite place is by the sea, and I am keen to also get to Positano and Portofino, small fishing villages on the Italian Riviera, very much favoured by the glitterati - fantastic for celeb spotting!

    I personally have not been to Italy yet but I would love to see Tuscany and the villas surrounding it. I also want to see Venice with boat houses and actually flow through it riding a gondola.

    The Northern Lake District around Lombardia is beautiful as well. Just to the North of Milan, you could visit some beautiful lakes like Lake Como and Iseo. Really beautiful and the family will enjoy it. Nearby is the ancient city of Bergamo, with it's medieval architecture, clean streets and spectacular views. There's the Alpine region just slightly to the north and east, with beautiful trekking and again, spectacular views.

    I have yet to go to Italy, though it's at the top of my list for places I've been wanting to see for ages. There are endless options for beautiful sights, amazing food and good wine, the culture is lovely. It's a photographer/artist's dream, that's for sure!

    Italy is definitely on my top 10 foreign places to visit. I have actually heard a lot of great things about it! If you do your research you'll see that there are numerous different things that makes Italy such a hot spot for tourists. A comrade of mine took her trip last Summer and came back with the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen of Rome. I hate saying it, but I was absolutely jealous! My fiancé and I eventually plan on taking a trip there when we get the opportunity. I think it would be such a wonderful experience!

    It's absolutely breath taking: the architecture, the art and the food. A friend of mine visited Milan and I was salivating over her beautiful pictures. She took the most beautiful photograph of a cathedral. She also gained ten pounds stuffing her face with wine, bread and pizza. I would love to go when I get the opportunity. I've been wanting to explore Italy ever since I was a child.

    I really Milan when I was there in Spring. The weather was warm but not too stifling like in Summer and the food was excellent. I know exactly which cathedral she took photos at. Milan does have amazing ancient architecture. The food is amazing and if you have a chance to eat at a restaurant that serves Milanese-style aperitivo, it's really worth it! The food is cheap and comes in small bites (its meant to fill you up slightly before dinner which is normally very late in Italy) and the variety is amazing. Most of the restaurants serve buffet-style and if you want a cheap dinner, then just help yourself to more aperitivo! They're delicious and there's a huge variety!

    Italy is a great place to visit. I went there a few years back. The cities are very stunning and the people are nice. I am also a big fan of history so the historical artifacts and places there really interested me. I also have family there so I feel I have a bond with the land. I really do reccomend you go and visit. It is a great country!

    Beautiful Lakes To Visit In Italy

    I had the opportunity to travel in the North around Milan and Bergamo, as well as the beautiful lake Como and Iseo region. I loved the wild rugged natural landscapes of that region, which was completely different from Milan. Every city in Italy has her own charm (and delicious local cuisine!) and there is always something for everyone!

    I've always heard it's all about the food - the food is apparently wonderful! I've heard great things about the loving, joyous people as well. This is one of my top 5 places to travel to in my lifetime; specifically Rome. I for one am more interested in the architecture and the sights than the food. To see the coliseum would absolutely melt my heart; one day!

    Italy is a popular tourist destination as it has a Mediterranean climate, seas, lakes, mountains, history, architecture, good food and wine.

    Italy is also the country with the most UNESCO World heritage sites in the world making the place full of lots of unique places to see

    My family and I visited Italy last summer and I absolutely loved it. I was the least charmed by Rome, but it was still an incredible place to see. With all of the ancient architecture in amongst the city. Florence I thought more appeal for a city, it was one of our favorites places. We also visited Cinque Terra, which was amazingly gorgeous. Venice was very crowded, but it is such a unique place that it shouldn't be missed. We also found that we really loved Lucca, which is a small walled-in city where you can bike along the wall surrounding it. We had an amazing time overall and a lot of fantastic food. I would definitely recommend Italy if you haven't been.

    The food, food, food! The dishes are simple, nothing exotic or that you haven't already seen in America. But the ingredients are incredibly fresh and well-prepared. The tomatoes, the pasta, the gelato are just out of this world - nothing like what you'd get at a typical Italian restaurant anywhere else in the world. They just have a handle on that stuff.

    The architecture is stunning, yes, but I found myself more stunned by the natural beauty and charm of small lake towns. You could walk around the little streets in those towns for hours. And of course, if you're a big shopper, Italian cities have some of the best fashion.

    The architecture, art, museums, food, and atmosphere in Italy are very different and amazing compared to other Western countries.
    Italy is a very nice place to relax.
    I was there in July, and it was unbearably hot during the early afternoon. I would recommend going a little later, or earlier, in the year to avoid the heat.
    The architecture and bustling activity in Rome is definitely something you should try to experience. Stay away from many of the street vendors (this goes for many cities) that are selling knock-off designers bags and jewelry. If you're caught buying these things, you may be required to pay a hefty fine.
    Venice is absolutely beautiful - especially if you manage to get a boat ride there from Padua. It's a perfect boat ride in the early morning. Make sure to check out all of the masks (or, rather, try not to avoid them) in Venice.
    Florence is where Michelangelo's David is. Make sure you don't take a picture, or the guards might take your memory card/film out of your camera. The statue is quite amazing though.
    There are also fruit stands and clothing stands throughout the country where you can buy amazing fruit and cheap clothes.

    Reasons For Going To Italy

    I love Italy . The country is just beautiful. The food is beautiful and the people are always friendly. Saying that I have only been twice, both of my experiences have been good ones though. I also love to go on big shopping spree's in Italy, I have been told by my husband that I am not allowed back unless I am going to win the lottery

    Why wouldn't tourists go to Italy? The people are very friendly and in particular love children (ideal for families), it has stunning cities packed with beautiful architecture, it has a rich history and cultural tradition, the weather is good, and of course...the food is delicious!

    The main reason why I went to Italy was because of the history. They have thousands of years worth of really cool history and it was nice to see the historical sites in person. Also, I was really excited to try authentic Italian food and well I loved it. I would go back to Italy just to eat!

    Beautiful Italy Experience

    I went to Italy as a teenager for about a week and I left feeling like a week wasn't enough! I can't wait for the opportunity to experience it as an adult. I'd love to eventually make a trip to Tuscany. It looks breathtakingly stunning.

    Last I went to Italy I was a teenager too I and I only stayed for a week. I wish I was there for longer as well so many cities to visit. I did go to Tuscany, the food and wine were amazing and the scenery was great; I would go back in a heart beat.

    Italy is beautiful and this is top reason for visiting Italy

    Italy is amazing. The challenge is that because it is a popular place to go, it is tempting to only see the places like Rome, Venice and Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast. The train system is very good in Italy so you can explore the smaller towns. They are so beautiful. One of my favorites is the town of Verona, in northern Italy. It has the second oldest coliseum in Italy. The oldest is in Rome. It is also the place where William Shakespeare got the story of Romeo and Juliet. The outdoor cafe's are very traditional for Italy. If you go to Venice, don't go during the summer months. It is super crowded, super hot and not pleasant since most activities are outdoors.

    Re: Why Do Tourists Go To Italy

    That's easy! Many tourists go to Italy for the architecture, the cuisine, the culture, and the history. Italy is one of the countries in the world's which appeals to every one of a person's senses. It's romantic and beautiful. I can picture the countryside of Italy right mow, like Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast. That country is really breathtaking! I have never actually been there but I have seen, heard, read, and tasted too many things to not visit there at least once in my lifetime!

    Re: Why Do Tourists Go To Italy

    I haven't been yet but your review, @jodianni12, is enough to make one want to go there. However, I would want to visit Italy because of all those mafia movies and TV series that I've watched and grown to love. I want to see where all that inspiration comes from.
