I recently returned from an amazing trip to Italy. It was a whirlwind week of fun with my sister and one of my closest friends. And while all of the historical sites were pretty cool, there was another part of Italy that made my trip memorable -- its people.

 

 


 

It took me a few days, but I finally realized that it was the people of Italy who were making my trip so much fun. Like the charming and very funny guy dressed like a Roman outside the Roman Forum.

 

 

And I believe that when in Rome, you should dance with a Roman wearing sneakers.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's the train conductor who blushed a little when we told him we were taking pictures of all the charming men in Italy.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

I love this picture -- a beautiful older couple walking hand-in-hand through the streets of Florence.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

But my favorite person along the way, was this 90-year-old handsome gentleman who we met in Mestre, just outside of Venice. He owns a wonderful pizzeria named Garibaldi's.

 

 

 

Not only was it the best pizza we had during our entire vacation, just taking his picture made us smile. When you get to that part of Italy, be sure to stop in and say hello. He'll be the good looking guy sitting at the corner table, making sure everyone is having a good time.
