RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU ADORE SHOPPING!!!
Italy is one of the most important traveling and shopping centers in the world. In my opinion, this magical country decorates our dreams as its various type of meals, tourists attractions, fashion weeks, Venezia’s amazing atmosphere an so on..
Many of you may ask, how can I carry a box of pizza to my family? Of course, you can’t 🙁 but the first thing that comes to mind when we say Italy is pasta! You should try which named Caccavella, its shape is like a big shell. They fill it and prepare it like a stew. Also, you may try to eat Bucatini and eat its sauce with a straw. It’s easy to find all of them in Napoli.
I have good news for cheese lovers, too! You can find more than 80 type of cheese like; Parmesan(you should check as Parmigiano-Reggiano), Giallina, Pecorino Romano, Ricotta, Grana-Padano… Casabianca ve Casa dei Latticini Miracci is one of the most popular cheese brands and Fratelli, Roscioli, Franchi ve Castroni are famous places that you can buy those things.
Let me continue with others. You should buy at least one or two bottles of organic olive oil from Podere Vecciano, they even have a tree in the shop. It’s time to talk about coffee! Isn’t it wonderful to have breakfast with cappuccino and cornetto? If your answer is ‘I don’t know’ you should try as soon as possible. Espresso, Caffé Macchiato, Latte Macchiato, Caffé Lungo, Caffé Shakerato, Caffé Freddo, Granita al Caffé and many more. I may also recommend Amaretti cookies to eat while you are sipping your coffee. Amaretti cookies are made by almond, sugar and egg whites.
I have to add Amaro, Grappa, and Limoncello. Those two are alcoholic drinks and the most important characteristic of those is making digestion easy. The most known Amaros are Averna, Ramazzotti, Luciano, and Montenegro. Grappa is made by grape. Limoncello is a famous liqueur in Italy, it is also helpful to make digestion easier. It has good smell and easy to drink.

Italy is also a significant country for fashion as I mentioned. Various type of brands such as; Prada, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Dolce&Gabanna, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Sorelle Fontana, Fendi, Laura Biagiotti. I want to say something before you ask, those are not as expensive as other countries. They are considered cheap, actually. You may find those shops in Via Condotti street. Also, you may want to buy Venice carnival costume to wear on Halloween? Or, who could say no to a silk scarf from Italy as a gift?

Don’t afraid if you don’t have a good budget. You can buy fridge magnets, chocolates, trinkets that shaped like Collesium. You can find them around Fountain Trevi, Collesium or Piazza Navona. Another opportunity is, you may buy professional or amateur drawings from galleries or exhibitions.
