Italy is undoubtedly the darling of tourist destinations. Home of some of the world’s favorite foods and awe-inspiring history and artistic creations, Italians truly incite an insatiable appetite for la dolce vita. From the wonderment of Michelangelo’s venerated Sistine Chapel ceiling, to the decorously constructed stone arches of the Colosseum, the country’s capital, Rome, offers centuries of unbelievable art and history at every corner. Scale the romantic floating merchant city of Venice by gondola, or strut the streets of bustling Milan wearing garments of premium international appeal. Further South, Naples offers scrumptious authentic Italian pizza, while the Italian Riviera is home to the picturesque Cinque Terre National Park.
