Italy is famous, Italians did a good job imprinting the feeling of their homeland in our understanding! Italy in terms of its place of origins is not much different from the one you probably were introduced to outside of it. There are plenty of good staff to eat, see and discover in this country!!! I only had a glimpse of it a couple of times, leaving it for a later time to discover. I never actually traveled well in Europe, there are simply too many tourists there all the time, so it is really hard to see places due to the crowd of ‘walking photocameras’.
What I liked in Venice was the atmosphere after 5 pm, when everybody is gone, so there’s a chance to stroll around the narrow streets.
In Rome there’s a lot of history, so either you have learned about it in school or you need a couple of weeks to discover what it was all about, because all roads led to Rome for a long period of time.
This is exactly why I don’t like being in European cities in summer … Maybe countryside?
In Milan you will need another pair of arms to carry the shopping bags because it’s impossible to stop oneself from buying. Their staff is of a good quality, good taste and there are sales mostly all of the time.
