    1. I found that there are close to 1,000 museums very interesting.
    2. That they are part Roman Catholic too.
    3. The majority of things are different.
    4. Mainly about the culture of the people.

    Failey and Julia, i really like how colorful your glog is! I loved how you put interesting facts like "70% of the worlds bacon comes from the Netherlands." Immigration is an issue in Italy as well. I am really curious to learn more now!
