Italy

Ciao! Italy’s my next stop on my future traveling trip. I’ve always wanted to visit Italy. Seeing the sights of their towns, their arts, their cultures, and even ancient buildings are worth seeing in person. I’m not gonna lie though, another thing I’ve always wanted to do there is to try their foods. Italy looks like they have some of the best meals in the world. Overall I just want to explore the sights of Italy and see for myself want makes this country one of the best in Europe.

Florence would be my first stop in Italy. From the looks of it, Florence looks to have some of the best looking arts and architecture in the world. Almost the whole town looks like a masterpiece. Any building you see, you’ll immediately say “wow”. The Uffizi Gallery has some of the most ancient paintings and masterpieces ever since the 16th-century. That gallery also holds the record for having the most visited guests in Italy, with over two million visitors since 2016. Giotto’s Campanile looks like a great place to visit as well. This place holds a red, green, and white marble-clad Gothic tower with steps leading to a terrace and city views. That would be AMAZING to witness in person! Lastly, I would love to see the statue of David. This statue was created by iconic artist Michelangelo. Michelangelo used marble to create this historic statue from 1501 to 1504. His hard work sure paid off big time because still to this day, people view this statue in awe. David’s a Biblical hero in Italy and is a favored art subject in Florence. Now that’s some fantastic history.

Next stop, Venice! This city is very unique to say the least. For one, there’s no roads, just canals! That’s pretty amazing! I’ve never seen any city that doesn’t have any roads. If anything I would expect a city with no roads to have fields. For this city to have canals to get you to destinations is pretty incredible. The Piazza San Marco is a nice plaza to check out as it features urban spaces in the city. This place would be a good time for you and your friends to have food and drinks and walk around for a good sight-seeing. The Bridge of Sighs looks like a beautiful place to see as it’s made of white limestone, has windows with stone bars, passes over the Rio di Palazzo, and connects the New Prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace. Also looks like some nice shopping places are in the area so you can not only look at some amazing views, but do some nice shopping as well. It’s one of the most famous bridges in the world and definitely is a must see in Italy. Another bridge I would visit is the Rialto Bridge. This bridge is the oldest of four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice. It’s been rebuilt several times in order to have a spectacular view and it’s since became a significant tourist attraction in Venice. Can’t wait to see it for myself!

Last but not least, ROME! The capital of Italy, Rome has some iconic art and architectures that spans over 3,000 years! That’s pretty insane! The Colosseum would be the first place I would visit because of its historical background. It’s built of travertine, tuff, and brick-faced concrete and is the largest amphitheatre ever built! Built in 70-80 AD, this historic amphitheatre holds between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, averaging 65,000 daily. The Trevi Fountain looks astonishing!  Located in the Trevi district in Rome, this fountain was designed by architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini. It’s the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world! The work of art on this fountain would be great to see in person. You can just tell by the looks of it that the fountain features so much detail and so much hard work was put into this fountain. Lastly, the Roman Forum. This place is a rectangular forum surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome. Citizens of Rome referred to this space, originally a marketplace, as the Forum Magnum, or simply the Forum. Climbing the Palatine Hill would let you see the entire Forum in full view. That’s something I gotta do immediately once I ever get the chance to see this Forum.

There’s a lot of things I would love to do in Italy that would take pages for me to talk about, but I’ll spare y’all with the lengthy yapping about it. All I really have left to say is that I can’t wait to visit Italy in the future and look forward to having a great time there! Addio!
