"My impression of Italy...." Italy by margaretvn

Italy Travel Guide: 72,271 reviews and 196,749 photos

Our trip to Argentina and Chile (planned for October 2001) was cancelled because the travel agent went bankrupt after 9/11.

So we decided to do a GRAND TOUR of Europe, and part of the trip was to Italy. We had always talked about a "grand tour" so we finally got around to doing it and we enjoyed every moment of it.

Nothing booked in advance just ideas about what we wanted to see.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:so much history and art
  • Cons:can be very busy in the major centres
  • In a nutshell:art at its very best
  • Last visit to Italy: Oct 2001

    A delight to read your Italy pages. It's my all-time favorite place to visit. Your descriptions are vivid, informative, and educational. You covered many of the places I cherish.

    Ah, how I would love to see Italy. But alas, I want to see SO much, when will I find the time or money? You are so lucky to be able to drive it. Someday, I'll be there again!
