Florence, Venice and Milan

There are a lot of cities worth visiting in Italy.

Florence is the birthplace of the renaissance (文藝復興). You can find the works of famous artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo there. If you want to see Florence's sunset, you can walk up to Piazzale Michelangelo. The panoramic view was truly breathtaking. I still remember when I was enjoying the sunset there, there was a busker (街頭藝人) singing romantic songs with his guitar. That moment still lingers in my mind.
Venice is very unique as it is a city on water, comprising 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges. You can take a ride on a gondola, which is a classical Venetian rowing boat. However, as the alleyways (小巷) and canals (運河) look very similar, it is very easy to get lost in Venice!
As it was New Year's Eve, I attended the countdown masquerade (化裝舞會) in Piazza San Marco, where people wore Venetian carnival masks. It was a very memorable experience!
Milan, on the other hand, is a very modern city with lots of trendy shops and restaurants. Yet, you can still find traces of the old Italy. For instance, you can find Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece "the Last Supper" there. I also visited the Duomo di Milano, which is the fifth largest cathedral in the world. It is truly spectacular!
Of course, if you are in Italy, you must try genuine (真正的) Italian food like pizza, spaghetti and gelato!
