Ciao !! I am in Rome today, the Capital of Italy. It had once the mightiest empire of the world !

So how about some little facts about Italy? Da ?
Here we go !

1) Italy has an area of 301,245 sq Km and looks like a foot kicking a ball. ( Maybe that's the reason why football is so famous amogst Italians)

2) It's one of the great nations of the southern Europe famous for their long and distinguished histories, architectures and wines.

3) Italy is usally divided into two: Northern and Southern Italy. The South is much poorer than the North due to it's mountainous landscape.

4) The Colosseum was actual the name of a huge statue near the nowadays refered Colosseum. The original name was Flavian Amphitheatre.

5) Italy has some of the worlds famous volcanoes: Etna and Vesuvius. The Volcano Vesuvius's erruption of 79 AD had destroyed the city of Pompeii and also had its first eyewitness when errupting.

6) Italy is famous for it's cuisine including Pasta and Pizza. Pizza used to be poor people's food and didn't have any tomatoe sause until the arrival of tomatoes in Europe.

Before I go. If there's a country you guys want me to visit just leave a comment. Or if you know certain facts about the country I will be featuring next week. I am sure I'll add it.

I'll see you next week then ! Arrivederci !!!!
