Why Italy?

Americans have a massive crush on Italy, with plenty of us aspiring to Eat Pray LoveUnder the Tuscan Sun. With its stunning countryside, massive coastline, and vibrant (if grimy) cities, the European peninsula offers something for everyone. You can’t mention the country without mentioning the food and wine. You could spend years just traveling from bite to sumptuous bite. Retirees often mention the high quality and low cost of healthcare, but people of working age complain about bureaucracy and difficulties finding employment. Both groups note that you should start working on your Italian if you want to make friends and fit in.
