1. Vespas

The classic picture of a Vespa; just add the streets of Rome and a cute Italian and you’ve got yourself a classic Lizzy McGuire movie dream. They are classic, iconic and literally everywhere. Vespas are a preferred form of transportation for Italians because they can be navigated easily through the narrow streets and bypass traffic that slows bigger vehicles down.

3. Italian Architecture

In Italy, the architecture is incredibly beautiful and is sure to take your breath away. Especially as Americans abroad, we aren’t used to seeing buildings that are so old, large and full of history.

4. Lifestyle

The picture above captures the real lifestyle of Italian's. The simple moments.

"One thing that Italians are very good at is living in the moment. They are known for their beautifully relaxed way of life. "

5. Vino

Of course, how could you have a collection of 5 photos that capture Italy and not include their famous wine? Italian cuisine is famous throughout the entire world, and the Italian people aren’t shy about flaunting that. When traveling through Italy, you are sure to pick up a thing or two about choosing a good wine and you’ll likely be a bit more of a wine connoisseur by the time you fly home.

"Every moment matters"



Are you interested in capturing the moment? A travel photography tip from Kelsey:

"Pay attention to the details and different angles that you can shoot from in order to avoid getting the same photos that everyone else has. There are thousands of pictures of the big monuments on the Internet; taking a photo that is just a little different will help you get something more unique and interesting!"

"I haven't been everywhere yet...but it's on my list."

-Susan Sontag


"But that's the glory of foreign travel...I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childhood wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can't read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can't even reliably cross the street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses."

-Bill Bryson

-Miriam Beard


"Connection doesn't care about the laws of the land. Your soul will be pulled to the place it belongs. "

-Anonymous

"The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for the newer and richer experience"

    -Eleanor Roosevelt 


" There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it."

    -Judith McNaught
