According to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) World Factbook, Italy is slightly larger than the size of Arizona, with a population of 62,137,802 (July 2017).  The official language is Italian; however, parts of the region speak predominantly German, French, and Slovene.  Christian is the primary religion, but there are also many Muslim, atheist and agnostic (CIA).

Italy is a beautiful country to travel throughout, featuring various regions from Tuscany to the Amalfi Coast, Sicily, and large cities like Rome and Naples.

Through various trips, I have been fortunate enough to visit Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples, Pompeii, and Taormina (Sicily).
