On the Map~Fun Facts about Italy

Did you know?

Italy borders Austria, France, Vatican City, San Marino, Slovenia, and Switzerland.

The thermometer is an Italian invention.

With almost 40 million visitors, Italy is the fourth most visited country in the world.

Eyeglasses are an Italian invention.

"Ars longa, vita brevis" is a common saying in Italy. It means "art is long, life is short" and reflects the Italian love of leisure.

Out of all of my "On the Map" posts, this one was definitely my favorite. Not only am I Italian, but I think Venice it just one of the most beautiful places ever!
Enjoy :-)
