Italy is very very beautiful country. It is one of two countries I was considering to live besides Czech Republic. The other country was England.
Italy has everything. Beautiful nature, rich history, industry and culture.
If I would have to choose in which part of Italy to live I would choose the Northern part then Southern part.
Firstly because North Italy has borders with France, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia. So you can easily travel! And it is closer to my country.
And secondly North Italy is cleaner then South. I don’t know if it is because Northern Italian are more close to Austria and Austrian people are well known for they clean and nice surroundings. :) Some of North Italy was part of Austria-Hungary Empire. So they might still have a little bit of Austrian cleanliness inside them. :)
People. Italians are crazy everywhere! Doesn’t matter if they are from North or from South. ;) But crazy in good way. I like their hands gesticulation, loud voices and warm welcoming. They very heartfelt people. What I can’t get used to is their concept of time. The afternoon breaks at work when it is closed for four hours. Or when they are not working the day starts around lunch and the real life is at night. :) Oh, Ok, one thing where they are crazy is road. Italians are crazy crazy drivers! Everywhere! I had few time the chance to sit next to Italian driver and I almost died how scared I was. :)
Italian men. Oh yes! Italians really know how to get a girl! And not only one, all of them! :) They make you feel like you are the most beautiful woman on the earth and they will do whatever to get you. They would call you nicest and sweetest names you can imagine and your heart will melt until they get you. :) Yes Italian men knows how to love and how to be nice to woman. But also Italian men forget quickly because there is sooo many beautiful woman on the earth! ;) I am sure if they want to settle down they are very family oriented.

OK. That’s it! At the end enjoy watching video of Italian people celebrating their winning of Soccer World Cup 2006!
