One of the aspects that I love about travelling is the process of discovery - the local culture, history or cuisine. So obviously I loved Italy - a country rich in all these aspects. Interestingly, the city that I fancied the most was Florence, rather than the popular ones like Rome or Venice. It's difficult to explain my fascination. But, you can take a look at the things that I connected with the most, and probably you'll identify with a few of them as well -
Michelangelo's David - The Galleria dell'Accademia has a significant collection of sculptures and artefacts. And TNH, it got boring after a point, I just couldn't relate. But the Statue of David - that I found intriguing because of its symbolic status . The original statue was moved to the gallery in 1873 and replaced by a replica in 1910, both are worth a visit. Make sure you visit the gallery on the top floor where you can access a video about the history of the statue and the painstaking efforts put into its restoration.
