My favorite thing about Italy is the architecture (and pizza and gelato…yum). Everywhere in Europe has absolutely incredible and intricate buildings, but of all the things I saw in Italy, the architecture was the most inspiring.

In all fairness, I was only in Italy for 3 days. I know there is so much more to do and see in such a beautiful, vibrant country, and I would love to go back. Of the sights I did see, many were tourist sites, which did kind of take away from the experience (although I was a tourist myself!). The Colosseum, for me, was the most awe-inspiring, just from its size and magnitude. But the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, in Florence, was the most memorable- it is just breathtaking.
