On everyone's travel bucketlist, Italy is not just a very popular tourist destination - think Rome with its rich history, Julius Ceasar doing his world domination stuff, Cleopatra capturing the hearts of Julius's Generals, Pontius Pilate doing whatever he does best and Nero fiddling while Rome was burnng. The Vatican the most holy site for all Catholics around the world, Italy is famed for its healthy Mediterranean food, pizzas, gelatos, wine - the list is endless.

Think elegant and to-die-for best cars in the world (Masarati, Ferrari - the names themselves sends a shiver up your spine and make you want to make revving up noises!), Italian football teams, beautiful Signorinas, classy cinema, Sophia Loren, heavenly honeymoon destinations, we can go on and on.
