    My favorite Italian city is Venice, it is so beautiful, is a unique city built on water in the middle of a lagoon and it is one of Italy’s most beautiful and romantic cities. I would LOVE to visit Venice, it is a wonderful dream.

  2. caroln Says:

    I love Venice, we went about 24 yrs ago before we got married, I loved the gondola ride on the canal, the glass factory and the wonderful charcoal drawings we bought from the local artists. Every time I see the pictures on my wall all the memories come back

  3. MizCindyHead Says:

    I’ve never been out of the country so I wouldn’t no. My daughter use to live in Aviano Italy, her husband is Airforce. It was be awesome to have an actual honeymoon after being married almost 4 years. Especially after eveything that we’re going thru right now. We found a bat in our bed with us so we are having to do the rabies vaccine series, not fun. Lots of shots, are first set was 7 for me all at once and nine for my hubby. 3 more to go over this month.

    I love Torino or Turin Italy. That is where me and my fiance went for the winter Olympics. It is such a nice place, and the people were friendly.

  6. babykbearz Says:

    Never having been there, I cannot say I have a personal fav., but I can say that I love them all and am hoping to visit this time next year. From it’s history & culture all the way to it’s people, food and art, for me “Everything’s Better in the Boot”!!!!! This product sounds absolutely wonderful and would be honored to try it and take it with me on my next trip back home in December & tell all my girlfriends about it. Thank You for giving me a chance to win this! 🙂

  7. TammyKicak Says:

    I’ve never been to Italy, but I think my favorite would be Venice, because of all the beautiful scenery there, & the gondolas are too cool!! 😀

  8. oceanlover1031 Says:

    It is so hard to pick just one! I love Venice but would really love to see Rome. Just to be able to feast my eyes on all of that history would be amazing. The Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum, Michelangelo’s works. And then there are all the local people, customs and foods to take it. This is something I have dreamed of my entire life, but have yet been able to make it a reality. This would be the perfect honeymoon for us.

  9. rnav Says:

    Another Venice Lover here! Read first about its uniqueness when I was in 7th grade. Since then I’ve watched many shows showing Venice’s beauty and culture and it has intrigued me a lot.

I’m a huge Foodie, so I know the Amelia Romangnia area has amazing people, food and culture! My hubby says his favorite city is Fierenze…because that’s where the Renaissance took place!

  17. miriama59 Says:

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  20. Sheppe14 Says:

    A friend of mine visited Italy a few years ago and fell in love. He said the food in Tuscany was amazing and the shopping in Milan was incredible. I think I would definitely try to take in all the sights and sounds that has made Italy a sought after tourist attraction for all these years. Since I have to choose, it would be to get great beauty buys and extraordinary finds in Milan.

  21. ssfashiongirl007 Says:

    My fave city is Milan, the fashion capital of the world! =)

  22. amygemini Says:

    I’ve never been to Italy but I would have to say Venice, it looks so beautiful! I love to travel, would love to go there one day!

  23. lindancer Says:

  24. sabrinac Says:

    My favorite city in Italy is Rome very beautiful and full of Romance, have seen photos of rome. Lots of great history there also. I have never been lucky enough to go there but someday.

  25. bambimommyof4 Says:

    Ferentino, Italy

    Rockford’s relationship with Ferentino arose from ancestral connections and the desire to reinforce the heritage of Rockford’s Italian-Americans through cultural exchanges. Estimates suggest many of Rockford’s nearly 10,000 Italian-descended residents hail from the Ferentino area, including Representative Zeke Giorgi, who served in the Illinois General Assembly for many years. Located in the Frosinone province 45 miles southeast of Rome, Ferentino has a population of nearly 20,000 and is well known for its ancient Roman structures. The first exchange took place in Rockford in May, 2006 and included Ferentino Mayor Pergianni Fiorletta, aldermanic representatives, and several members of Ferentino’s Pro Loco Association. Mayors Lawrence Morrissey and Fiorletta signed the official agreement at a City Council meeting May 13, 2006. Future exchanges are being explored.

  26. Patyc Says:

    I’ve never been there but my favorite city is Brescia Italy..it is my favorite because I’ve must’ve lived there in a past life!

  27. reggie Says:

    It would have to be Rome ,since I’ve never been.The Vatican would be beautiful to see and I can only imagine what the rest of the city would have to offer a novice as myself !

  28. buffisan Says:

    I want to be in love with Venice, and also with Tuscany. Tuscany, of course, because of the novel, Under the Tuscan moon; and Venice because of the canals and gondola rides. If I have to choose, I will go with Tuscany because of the food and architecture. buffisan(at)gmail.com

  29. butterflyrouge Says:

    My favorite birthday was my 25th, when my parents and I toured the collection of art from Florence that was on exhibit at the Memphis Pyramid. Now Florence is on my bucket list!

  30. ImHisBella813 Says:

    I have been into to fashion since I was was old enough to know what fashion was…so my choice would definitely be MILAN! Oh just thinking about all the fabulous stores makes me want to squeal!!! The food and scenery would be the icing on the cake:) Ok seriously, now I think I am in serious need of retail therapy and some cannolis and a glass of vino!!!

  31. Sk3lly_Tin Says:

    I’ve never been to Italy, but I hope to get to go one day…I’m a culinary student so I’d love to have the opportunity one day to go to Tuscany. There are some amazing culinary schools there, I’m sure I could learn a lot, and it would just be amazing. 😀

    Good luck to everyone ((:

  32. admin Says:

    We are loving your responses to this Gorgeous Giveaway! My favorite is anywhere in Tuscany – the colors, the food, the beauty, and the great looking men, not to mention the Prada and Fendi outlets….:) Cant wait to go back for a visit.

  33. tiramisu Says:

    I’ve never been to Italy…yet. So I’ll have to take a guess based on what I’ve read in magazines or seen on television. I’m a huge foodie, so Bologna might be my favorite. But I think I would enjoy the sights of Venice and Tuscany as well for their beauty.

  34. cardsfan720 Says:

    I’ve never been to Italy but have always wanted to see Rome because of the art and historical significance, and Tuscany because it looks so beautiful and peaceful there. 🙂

  35. calidreamin87 Says:

    My favorite Italian city is Milan because of the fashion! 🙂

  36. katrina1965 Says:

    I would love to visit rome and take a romantic boat ride under the bridges, and have snacks and glass of wine .

  37. magsey Says:

    I haven’t been to Italy but would love to go to Sorrento. The very name conjures up romance in my mind, and what can be better than mountains and ocean all in the one place.

  38. egood33 Says:

    I haven’t been to Italy before, but I’m dying to go to Rome, Italy! I want to go there for the history, culture… and the food! 🙂

  39. Kathy Says:

    My favorite Italian city is Florence. The art and architecture seen there is beyond exquisite. I’d love to vacation there and take in the whole atmosphere around.
