burano-2058261_1920

There is just something about Italy. Maybe it’s the endless supply of all that is delicious – the pizza, the pasta, the wine, the gelato – or the breathtaking scenery, from the jagged peaks of the Dolomites, to the rolling, vineyard-clad hills of Tuscany, to the dramatic Amalfi coastline. Or maybe what makes Italy so magical is knowing that no matter how many times you visit, there is always something new to see, do, or learn on your next trip. There is always a reason to return!
