I am in awe of Italys rich and varied culture. Its so different yet so beautiful across different parts of the country. I love the lipsmacking food and can never have enough of it! Even their social behaviour and propriety are praiseworthy. Though Ive lived in Italy for many years, Id like to visit it again. I would also love to visit Greece one day. I was a student of English Literature and became aware of Greeces rich literary and architectural heritage in college. I am also told that it has splendid natural beauty.
