A Letter from Paolo Nascimbeni - Founder of Life In Italy
I moved to the US in 1987 to finish my studies in computer science in upstate NY, Ithaca, New York. After graduation, in 1989, I moved to the Washington DC area. I go back to Italy five times a year and I constantly talk with Italians and Italian companies for my business. Even though I left Italy several years ago, I am up to date on the life styles in both countries. A disclaimer: since I was born in Italy, my views are somewhat biased toward Italy!

Below is a short story by Kristy about her visit to Italy:
I have been to many other countries in Europe but Italy is by far the best. We flew in Fiumicino airport and one of my friends that lives there (native Italian) picked us up. If you ever have the chance to have a personal guide to Italy, take it, they know everything in and out, everything to see, and all of the cool underground stuff. We had major jet lag but we were in Italy! We went to a coffee shop immediately. I had a Panini sandwich and wow it was the best thing I have ever had, along with a cappuccino which was amazing. The server who made it for me, put a smiley face on it, shows how friendly the Italians are. I was never once treated with disrespect there. In total we spent two weeks there. We went to all the sites to see, clubs, and we also drove to the almalfi coast one of the most beautiful places I have even been to.
It is amazing how much Italy has to offer. My most favorite place that [I] went in Rome would have to be Villa d'este...they have beautiful gardens, statues, and wonderful scenery. Oh and girls the Italian men are the most gorgeous in the world! Go to clubs, or just walk down the street and there you will be sure to find hot Italian men. I am blonde and when I was there everyone kept saying how they liked my hair. It was different but it was an experience. Oh and transportation there, use the subway/metro, its cheap and goes everywhere. Overall my trip to Italy was one of the best experiences I have ever had! Italy is beautiful, has the best food, most fun, and the hottest guys!
