10 Things I learnt In Italy

During my recent trip to the north of Italy (and Switzerland) You can read about here, I realised quite a few things in my surroundings that’s different to life in the UK. Here’s 10 fun things that I learnt whilst in Italy.

      1. Italians really like to take their time and enjoy their food and drinks – every restaurant and cafe I went into, everyone was taking their time and enjoying each others company.travel blog north italy milan in a week photos rinniboo com
      2. Italians do actually eat a LOT of pizza and pasta! – The majority of people everywhere I went were eating a slice of pizza or a plate of fresh pasta!

    The views of Lake Como were breathtaking!
  • When you ‘walk a dog’ it actually walks you! – I’m going to assume Italian dog owners love their dogs so much they let them lead the walk.

  • You can’t have too many vineyards – when you drive from Milan to Venice and pass through all the major white and sparking vineyards/wineries, you can’t NOT have a glass of wine

  • Italians like to talk – it seems rude to get straight to the point, get to know them a little first.

    Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II opened in 1877 and is the worlds oldest shopping mall!
  • Italians are pretty straight talking – they know what they want and how to get it!

But most of all, Italy is the most beautiful place I’ve visited and the culture there is amazing!
