I've never been one to enjoy clichés. Of course I participate in them just like anyone else, but I usually try to look for a more unique option in any situation. It was for this reason exactly that I wasn't really looking forward to the trip I had planned to Italy with my family. I would never turn down an opportunity to travel, but I would've preferred somewhere more exotic and unheard of. As it turned out, however, clichés aren't always a bad thing. Although Italy may be a popular tourist location, there is a reason: it is most definitely a place worth visiting.
Italy is an astounding country with culture, history, and beauty everywhere. Any type of traveler would love it because there is something there for everyone. For me, of course, the best part was the history. In fact, among the abundant artwork and architecture, history was almost inescapable. However, Italy's exceptionally rich history is only part of what made the country such a wonderful place to visit.
