Is there a country that is more romantic than Italy?
If you are a couple that loves art and culture, you can’t miss the experience of visiting Italy or even celebrating your honeymoon there. Italy is the 5th most populous European country, having 61 million inhabitants; it’s also one of the most visited countries due to its beauty.
Its history and culture are impressive; according to UNESCO, 60% of the world art heritage is found in Italy. Remember that “the piano” was invented in this country in 1709.
Italy is also known because of its fountains; between them, the Trevi fountain stands out the most, where tourists throw near 3000 euros in coins per day because of the myth born with the movie Three Coins in the Fountain (1954). The myth says: “If you throw a coin: you’ll return to Rome. If you throw 2 coins: You’ll find love with an attractive Italian girl or guy. If you throw 3 coins: You’ll marry the person you met.”
Also, one of the best parts of visiting Italy is its people. Italians are creative and innovators, sincere and with a positive mentality of always moving “Avanti” (always moving forward), “failure” doesn’t exist for them. They are proud of their food, culture, and art in general; they love who they are.
