It was a love affair from the beginning. The second I stepped off the airplane in Rome I was in love. This isn't just any kind of love, its like my "first love" a love I will always have and cherish. Maybe that is because Italy was the first place I traveled out side of the U.S. (beside Tijuana and that so doesn't count)
I cant decide what I like more about Italy, the sights, the food, the shopping, the language, or the art. They are all too great to rate one higher than the other. I love them all!
