Italy was one of the first countries I visited. My family and I did a road trip around the country visiting some of the most beautiful cities in Italy. It was young but I still remember everything very vividly. A few years ago I returned to Italy to visit Milan and tour the Dolomites for several days. Dolomites is one of the most beautiful places I have seen in the world. I always recommend going.
