I’m very fond of watching travel documentaries and one show that truly stuck me was the one about Italy. In the memorable show, the host traveled to Florence, Italy -– home of the magnificent Duomo Cathedral pictured below (left). Aside from this, Florence is also popular for having Michaelangelo’s David and the Uffizi museum which has one of the largest collections of Renaissance art in the world. Restaurants and Hotel Florence are dime a dozen, and can be seen in every street corner so food and accommodation isn’t a problem =)

If Florence is known for its rich Renaissance art and structures, Naples is famous coz of its gastronomic delights and Mt. Vesuvius. You know, the mountain that erupted and destroyed Pompeii. As for food, who haven’t heard of Neapolitan pizza?? Hehe! I just bet that pizza is sold in every eatery and Hotel Naples! =) And last, but not the least place to visit in Italy, we have Rome. It is the capital city of Italy and contains the smallest nation of the world, Vatican City (see St. Peter’s Square below). As with all places in Italy, Rome has several wondrous structures built from the past. Its architecture includes styles from Ancient Rome, from Baroque and Renaissance periods, Neoclassicism and Fascist era. Government buildings and even Hotel Rome are architectural marvels!
