You won't believe what cultures do these European countries carry

  

We all seek for cultures. The culture that we carry defines our roots, gives us a sense of belonging, trace us back to our roots. And we need to preserve it,

Europe has been a treasure for the diversity of cultures, and undoubtedly it has preserved it not by keeping it exclusive but by offering to the world and for them to be a part of it. 50 countries, all of them with their different culture find their home in the heart of Europe. The best thing about European countries is that they not only celebrate their traditions, rituals and arts as a part of culture but their day to day habits and food forms a huge part of their cultural world.

How I am reminded of Maples everytime I think of the best pizza in the world. The credit goes to Elizabeth Gilbert for letting her secret out in ‘Eat, Pray and Love’ where she discovered the best pizza in the whole world and how she had to loosen her jeans after that. I don’t doubt her one bit! Gelatos is Italian ice-creams, a little bit different as they have low fat and much tastier. Gelatos are a part of everyday culture in Italy.

Italy will also give you deep cultural insights into the Roman Empire. You will find the history, art, literature from the ancient, medieval to the modern Roman Empire. Romans boated off some of the most spectacular architecture, be it Rome Colosseum, Pantheon.
