Things I love about Italy | A Valentine’s Day Tribute

I thought in honor of sweetheart’s day I would simply list the things that I love about Italy.  Here they are, off the top of my head and in no particular order.  Go ahead, I encourage you to make your own list and send me the link to include in a future post about our love affair with this amazing place!

  • passeggiata
  • house wine
  • pistachio  gelato
  • bells tolling in the morning
  • the sound of swallows in Siena
  • the smell of sunrise
  • the sound of silverware on china plates in the late evening from my balcony window
  • guessing how fast the car that just passed me is going
  • the thrill of a good parking spot
  • porchetta straight from the van
  • the click of high heels on cobblestones
  • a cool drink from a fountain when in Rome
  • the bored look of the officials after baggage claim
  • osso bucco in Rome
  • polenta served family style
  • giving exact change
  • cheek kisses
  • espresso shots
  • savoring a morning cappuccino
  • following my nose for dinner
  • old men on benches
  • marveling at what an ape can carry
