Love of Italy This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Last year my school went on a two-week trip to Italy.We flew to Milan, and went to Rome, Florence, Assisi, Capri and Bologna.We visited many historical sites, including St. Peter's Cathedral, theStatue of David and the home of Marco Polo. We ate the best pizza I evertasted; the crust was very thin and really cheesy. My favorite city isVenice, the city surrounded by water. When we arrived I was madespeechless by the romance of the city. The people were beautiful and thecity made me want to fall in love. I have grown up in a Spanish-speakingfamily, and since Italian and Spanish are similar, I could order mymeals and speak with people.

I fell head over heels for Italy,especially Venice. According to the famous legend, because I threw acoin into the Trevi Fountain in Rome, I am destined to return.
